Says Activision, someone who whores the living crap out of their games, giving very little improvements over the previous games.

I also hate the way Activision's games are being rehashed whenever possible, but this has nothing to do with David Crane.

He created Pitfall, co-founded Activision and left the company in 1986, partly because of "the way the newly appointed CEO of Activision, Bruce Davis, treated video games more like commodities rather than creative products", according to his Wikipedia page.

I've just read 10's of French comments on insulting Crane for saying this while being related to Activision. This is unbearable. He left the company 26 years ago. What the hell, people?

right because rehash every year is better...LOL
