"With the exception of a few months such as October and November the "Grade-A" titles are always outnumbered by an alarming amount. The question here is whether developers should be aiming for perfection or content with less than that.
There is not all that much incentive for developers to aim for perfection when they can just crank out trash and make money. One only needs to look at the sales figures for any movie based game to see my point.
However, all the titles that I would dub either mediocre or crap are always absolutely adored by at least a few people."
