Quality trumps quality, yes...and this list has both. It has a sizeable, respectable number of games, some of them are great, most of them are good. Spider-Man and Astro's playroom are 85 and 82 respectively, Demon's Souls is likely to get great reviews, and While it might be a stretch to assume Sackboy will do well, it'll likely do mid to high 70's, which is good for what it is.
You can't say this is a bad launch unless you're weirdly super specific about what you like or are just trying to downplay it. If you don't like it, that's fine. I hate Call of Duty. I'm not going to pretend it's not a good game or a great addition to the launch lineup. same with Assassin's Creed and Watch-Dogs, they're not for me, but they're still good games.
But I can understand he not being excited since most can be played on PS4, so he may not really feel the urge to go PS5 even with all the improvements.

Mr Puggsly: "Hehe, I said good profit. You said big profit. Frankly, not losing money is what I meant by good. Don't get hung up on semantics"
Azzanation: "PS5 wouldn't sold out at launch without scalpers."
