Michael Pachter appears to be generally clueless about the videogame industry. All of his statements consist of a mixture of platitutes and nonsense. In short, he brings nothing of value to the table. I can't recall a single insightful statement made by him; his predictions are preposterous more often than not, which seems to be his modus operandi to ensure continued public attention.
If you stop quoting Pachterdamus, he will simply disappear.
Therefore I vote for making Pachter-quotes a bannable offense on vgchartz.com
