Stats Show That Activision Is An Average Publisher

"Activision are often thought of as one of the, if not the leading publisher in the video game industry. With big name franchises such as Call of Duty, James Bond and Transfomers in their vast library of games, you’d think that only the best games get put out into the market by Activision.

You would be very wrong." - TGC (Activision, Industry, PS3, Xbox 360)

Don't find this surprising at all. They are basically what EA used to be, and what EA is going back to. Revamp a few games, then milk them till they don't sale, then say "sorry we milked them" and revamp it again before going right back to it.

EA did the same thing all last generation. Mediocore games, then their sales hit a wall when they jumped for Wii this generation. Revamped all their games, released some qualities ones (NFS, NHL, Dead Space etc...) and went back to making that average. The difference is they still have some really good titles at spots.

Other than COD, Spider-man, and Singularity I don't own a single Activision game and have never had a big interest in anything else they offer. To be entirely honest if I didn't love Spider-man I'd never buy those games at all, and I got Singularity for free by trading a game lol
