Why would VGChartz wants to confuse us? If it was sales, they would just have wrote "What game will sell better?"

Why would VGChartz want to confuse us?  If it was quality why wouldn't they have just wrote, "What game will sell better?"

see what I did there?


What does quality have to do with sales?

I mean to say which game will be the best. but I concede defeat.



Guys, just because this is a sales site doesn't mean everything is sales related.

Also, sales in no way means quality.

I "LOL" everytime I read that because if that was true some of my favorite games Vagrant Story and Xenogears would be multi million sellers but guess what, they're not.

Also a game like Okami would have big sales but guess what, it doesn't.

Carnival games does though, I guess that game is up near the top in the quality department and trumps all 3 games I have just mentioned.

Am I right?

Sit back and think about that for a moment for me will you.

I hate the assumption that because this is a site about sales all discussions thereof must be about sales. If they wanted to know which titles people thought would sell the most they could have used such wording. Games that are big for me aren't necessarily for everyone else and since they didn't include context big is open to interpretation.

P.S. I didn't even vote in the stupid pole.

So go ahead and let us know which will be the best.

Only problem is that it will be your opinion and in no way reflects what everyone else thinks. That is why 29% think Uncharted 2 is the biggest on that list because that 29% is more interested in that game than any other game on the list.

You may be part of that 30%+ that think MW2 is the biggest. You may be part of the % that thinks ODST is the biggest.

If so neither of those groups are wrong and that is why threads like this are so pointless. They are very self centered threads.

 

Also note how the TC quickly ran off after creating this thread. Knowing full well what it would become.

As far as sales go I know in my gut New Super Mario Bros. Wii will figuratively murder all those other games and rape their dead bodies.

but thats just me.



Firstly, this thread was just made like two days ago, and I think (hope) it was locked.

Secondly, the poll said NOTHING about sales. I took it to mean sales, and voted MW2. It could mean anticipation, quality, buzz... Uncharted 2 could win all of those, couldn't it?

Lol this poll is really pissing alot of people off.  The solution to this problem is don't worry about it!



I think Uncharted 2 will almost undoubtedly be the biggest game. As the only PS3 exclusive, it's not limited by the size of a DVD. While the other games will probably be in the range of 3GB-9.5GB, Uncharted 2 will likely be at least 15+ GB, making it the biggest game of the holiday season, barring any PS3 game where the devs decide to put the BD storage to use by shipping the textures as uncompressed .BMP files optimized for a 2160p display.

Likewise, the smallest game on the list will probably be NSMBW, most likely sporting fewer, simpler textures, less voice acting, and no prerendered 1080p FMV cut scenes.

c wat i did thar?
