In Defence Of Gimps And Dildos

"Yes, Saints Row is that game with the dildo. That’s exactly what it is, if you mentioned “the purple dildo bat” everyone knows you are talking about Saints Row. You cannot buy that sort of marketing and brand recognition and you certainly wouldn’t get it in a ‘Michael Mann / HEAT / Collateral / Training Day’ type of game." (PC, PS3, Saints Row: The Third, Xbox 360)

It's in opposition of Cliffy B.

And it certainly wont put up grand theft auto numbers! Oh and didn't its publisher just collapse in financial ruin despite that "You cannot buy that sort of marketing and brand recognition"? The game is not serious and was not taken serious. I got nothing against the game, but this is a joke!

It's Publisher did fall flat , but I seriously doubt it had to do with the antics of one game. As for sale number it did well over 5 million units sold, besides do we really need another stiff, serious about everything GTA Clone.

What's your point? NO game even remotely similar to GTA will have GTAs sales figures. That SR3 was able to set itself apart with a dildo bat was a smart move.

GTA is like COD and WoW. Its gone way beyond brand recognition. GTA could crush the competition with zero advertising. Gamers buy a promise. They don't read reviews then make a decision, they "day 1" the hell out of games.

This article was defending the dildo bat and the wise decision to NOT compete directly with GTA. THQ may have failed but it wasn't because of SR3.

Anyway, I'm not exactly sure what point you were trying to make. That THQ made bad decisions in the past means they couldn't make good ones?
