Defiance: 5 Reasons It Will Fail As A Video Game & TV Show Crossover

"Much hype has been poured into the new MMO on the block, Defiance. Defiance the video game is an open world shooter MMO developed by Trion Worlds that will feature crossover elements with the TV show of the same name. " | Explosion.com (Defiance, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

No game or TV show is for everyone, but I'm loving both Defiance the game and Defiance the show. I think as long as people keep their expectations in check about the degree of influence the game and show will have on each other, they'll enjoy both. Both have lots of potential to go in interesting directions.

Because the show is pretty bad?

Give the show and the game some time before saying it fails. Who knows what could happen.

I'll give the show a chance because most pilots for tv shows, even good tv shows, are usually pretty bad or uninteresting.

But the dialogue in the pilot of Defiance was especially bad and very cringeworthy. Hopefully the writing wasn't indicative of what's to come.

I haven't played the game so I can't comment on that.

The concept of the defiance tv show/video game crossover being built from the ground up and actually having influence on one another was one I was highly looking forward to succeeding, as it combines my two favorite mediums, video games and tv shows(though I will watch NOTHING reality based), I was/am really hopeful that this would/will turn out well.

I disagree with your points, I'm definitely enjoying both the game (40+ hours and no where near finished) and the show.
