i hope so, it's a sad state of the gaming generation with have when such a stale, un-imaginative game breaks records and the true masterpiece games don't.

Don't be too sad, at least some great games were achievements such as The Last Of Us.

It deserves to I'll put it that way. Rockstart actually puts amazing effort into their games unlike CoD Developers.

In my opinion, sales don't really matter. it doesn't change the game or the consumer. as long as I like the game, I'm not going to worry about how many people have similar tastes. gtav will not be a disappointment no matter if the figures surpass or not. I don't like comparing games on whats better. you cant really give a grade on a vision a group of people have as if there's a template.I'm planning on getting gtav though.However I'm not concerned with thinking a game is going to be better than another by sales.

It actually does matter on how many sales go to which game. For example; Cod gets massive amounts of sales, copies and pastes the same game every year BECAUSE they keep selling, with little to no motivation to change their formula.

On the other hand, games like The Last of Us need (and deserve) as much recognition as possible to continue doing what they love (which is bringing in innovative minds/ideas to make gaming better, and to SET THE BAR higher so that in the future gamers like us will be able to play amazing things. This is our investment into the future of gaming. I know you feel like a single opinion or boycotted sale won't matter, but it does.

I'm not saying its something that should be disregarded all the time, but its not something we as consumer should focus on. There are already people with jobs for that. There is managing money, marketing, etc. Its not our responsibility or place to get all worked up over how many sales are made. Look at what happens before, cod fans would give the excuse "our game is better because it sells more". a good game doesn't mean it has to sell well. Sure it deserves it, but this is life. Things happen. Having us complaining and talking about sales is imitation and thinking its doing anything is insanity. Honestly the only thing we as consumers make a difference is with our wallet and our voice, but we need to redirect our voice to the companies instead of ourselves.
