VGChartz's Evan Norris: "With the National Football League (NFL) Draft in full swing, it seems as good a time as any to use it as a flimsy pretext to talk about video games. For those who don’t know, the NFL Draft is an annual meeting of National Football League teams during which each team selects newly eligible football players. Teams that finished the previous season poorly choose early and teams that made the playoffs choose late. The Super Bowl-winning New England Patriots, for example, chose 32nd out of 32 slots in the first round.
Wouldn’t it be interesting if video game companies drafted eligible IPs in the same way? Studios could draft unused franchises or brand new IPs, all in an attempt to field the most competitive gaming portfolio."
