While I can agree with the sentiment of the article in regards to B grade games, I don't feel Dead Island was the polished game it's made out to be. It was released as a pretty buggy game, with one major issue in a cut scene that cropped up on every system.
It's still less buggy than Skyrim.

It's far more buggy than skyrim without even a quarter of its scope and quality

Dead Island's got nothing on Left 4 Dead, or Killing Floor in the fun department.

The game has bad collission detection, you slide off stuff you jump on, the game's camera swaying is sickly, too much bloom. I could go on, this is the only game i can't play for more than about 20 minutes before i start feeling sickly.

Badly made crap that i wish i could sell, but i can't because it's stuck on my steam list.. from now on i only stick with developers that know how to make good games.

Are you kidding? The online multiplayer was near unplayable for months after release. Buggy is an understatement.

Yeah, Skyrim on PS3 probably...

Polish and Dead Island don't even belong in the same country. If you played co-op with friends, you could look passed some of the bugs, but even then so many design decisions were glaringly present.

Better then EA, maybe. But the others? I wouldn't push it.
