I have seen the consumer launch pretty poor games to the top of the charts many times.

CoD immediately comes to mind. lol. Don't get me wrong, I've spent hundreds of hours (maybe a thousand) online on CoD but it's gotten a bit old and repetitive. Shooters have gotten old for me as of late. I've turned to other games like Portal 2 which offer new experiences. I still play black ops and might get blops 2 but i won't be on every night like I used to be.

Obviously you've played the games and bought them, so that would eliminate those games from the "crap" contention.

Just because you've grown tired of playing a certain style of game, doesn't make it crap either. If Call Of Duty were a terrible and crappy game, it wouldn't continue to grow as an intellectual property.

I do think MW3 was probably the worst of the bunch, but I have played some really crappy shooters and COD isn't one of them. It might get repetitive, but nobody forces you to buy the games or play the same games over and over again. I usually buy a COD game every couple of years so that its fresher.

Crap games can surprise people, like the original Iron Man game that launched with the first movie, that sold millions and was a pile of donkey dung. Developers cant fool people consistently though, Naughty Bear is crap, so people wont buy it.

This is why I'm not buying Medal of Honor: Warfighter.

Yes they do, there are some idiots you know... much like yourself if you can make such a profound statement.

Says the man who peddled SWTOR (2.5 million units and counting for that lame WoW rip-off). At this point after the explosion of hyperbole this gen, I think that fans of every publisher/ console-manufacturer can all agree that any time someone in the industry speaks, whatever their product, they are usually full of $hit.

Perhaps he has finally learned. First step to solving a problem is admitting you have one. He is admitting people don't pay for crap. haha
