"why should I spend 10 million to make a port Assassin's Creed when I can spend less than half, make a party game and sell more"

What proof will it sell less? You kind of need AC games on the Wii to prove they will sell less. Not other games you lump in there.



A flashy-first game is awesome when it comes out. A great-first game is awesome forever.

well consumers can buy whatever they like.
But big sales doesn't automatically equal quality.

Personally it's another game, where I hold my head in shame and ask myself what happened to gaming...
sad sad sad

I'd be willing to argue that sales are the ONLY measure of quality.  It's a commitment of time and money when you purchase a game, and while hobbyists have no problems buying 5-6 games at once that they'll never finish, most people are not so willing to piss their money away. That doesn't just include people with families but also college students and other people around the same age who see gaming as just something else to do as opposed to their whole life.

Why did Mario Kart Wii sell more than Modern Warfare? The answer is simple: not enough people thought Modern Warfare was worth the effort to drive to a store and throw down 3-8 hours worth of pay for the experience.

I've been holding my head in shame wondering what's happened to gaming since around 2002. What took you so long? It's been going to shit since it was taken over by emotionally retarded virgins cranking out the same shit over and over again to the same group of 15 year old walking wallets willing and eager to gobble up the same shit sandwich with slightly different bread.

I'm glad gaming is moving away from being blockbuster driven, because it would be nice if gaming got its balls back.

What the hell are you talking about, seriously. When was gaming not about blockbusters? It just that the genre we used to see as big games have lost creativity and passed by better ones. Games are better now and more diverse as much as we complain about it. 

Sales has never equaled to quality in any medium of life, just demand and the market. More people have seen Family Guy than the Wire, but in terms of quality it's not even close.

COD4 came out in 2007 and is still in the top most played games in both the PS3 and 360. Where are you getting this 3-8 hours stuff.

You walk around in shame, that's your problem. Look at the games coming in 2010 from all consoles, this might be the greatest year in gaming ever, think about this for one second:

November 2010

Halo Reach = 360

Zelda = Wii

GT5 = PS3

Gaming is alive and doing well.

It should be worst game ever to sell 5 million copies when all is said and done. I'm glad a third party publisher has finally figured out the recipe for success on Wii.

"When was gaming not about blockbusters?"

The 2D years, when it was about making money, but they didn't have to be blockbusters.

Oh you mean when people played games to have fun not worry about if they thought it was casual or hardcore. Which is made up crap in the first place. I fit the play games I like and have fun with them no matter the type. But I do not think their is a label for me. Now I am sad.

But it's still about that today, Isnt it what the Wii is all about, isnt why Ubisoft makes games like Just dance.

The 2D became boring because every freaking games tried to be a MARIO GAME.

You worry too much of what people think. And don't worry PC gamers used to do the same thing to you guys back then, well they still do.

No, you asked when gaming wasn't about blockbusters, not a part of gaming not being about that.

And that is not what happened with 2D. That's not what happened at all.

Let me repeat, Gaming is and was always about the big games, that's why we loved Sonic, Mario, Halo, Snake,  GTA and they were still expensive games to make, It's just more expensive now because graphics an times demands more just like the movies.

"Gaming is and was always about the big games"

I thought you meant the need for most games to be blockbusters, not that big games are part of gaming.
