Kotick shows his kind side - offers advice to CEOs

Because that's bad right? hes not selling millions of those games every year? hes a CEO not a gamer and hes doing a hell of a job has CEO one of the best out there if you ask me.

and at what cost? screw the millions of dollars he makes, he a part of the problem with this generation of the gaming industry. if he keeps doing what he is doing right now and if(or when I should say)other publishers follow suit, we will be playing the same few games with a different paint job over and over again. eventually, people will get tired of that and we might see a second gaming crash.

Basically, the guy is the pure embodiment of all evil.

"Do the one best thing you know and you may fail in it, but focus on the one thing, don’t get distracted."

So milk the one thing over and over again and over again...
