GamesRadar writes: "With the possible exception of unexplainable, extraordinary inspiration, the factors which define a game's quality are roughly quantifiable. The success of a game, however, involves slightly more chance, as the variables are less precise. When is the best time to launch a new PS3 exclusive FPS? Is there a market for fighting games on the Wii? The Western audience likes Final Fantasy – shouldn't it like other Japanese RPGs? These answers can be approximated with figures and graphs and surveys and other things you'd find on boring people's desks, but regardless, there's not always a definable reason why one game succeeds and another flops."
