No one claimed it was as popular or as big as those games, whoever did is insane... but it is looking amazing and probably will help in sales, just not a huge impact like those games as is common knowledge. Don't say it's overhyped by pointing out it's less popular than the 3 most popular franchises on consoles (FF, MGS and GTA) outside of Halo in the US.
He makes a good point.
I mean...let's say you're a PS3 user, and you're OF COURSE interested in those "top 3" games. But you've been watching Lair and you're definitely looking forward to it, planning on buying it.
But you go to this poll...what do you pick? FF XIII of course...that's the one you REALLY want the most...or GTA or MGS.
So yeah, let's not get all worked up about this poll. Especially Blue3, who seems to think GameFAQ and GameSpot work in a conspiracy to take out the PS3, hehe.
The thing is that Lair is not in 4th behind the "big 3", but in 7th.
