See I just left an article where people were all up and in a rage about pirating!

If you make a good game it will sell and you will make lots of MONEY!!!!

Congrats to Rocksteady and all their hard work is paying off cause B:AC look great!!!

Very true, but imagine how well this game (and many before it, and soon to be after it) would sell if pirating didnt exist. I can imagine it would have been at least 15% more sales launch week, and at least 25% more sales over the lifetime of the product.

Though you are right about how if a game is good, (and has the right marketing) it will sell and ultimately make lots of money. Though i can think of plenty of games that were good or great that didnt sell nearly well enough, but thats for many other various reasons.

Spenok2400d ago

I got mine day one, but didnt start playing until 2 nights ago... its amazing. If you plan to buy it, do it asap. Absolutly worth it.

So far its my GOTY. But there is still SKYRIM

I'm hoping Dark Souls gets game of the year but I doubt it will happen.

KwietStorm2400d ago

Yea that's not happening. They deserve more recognition though.

You know there is no one definitive 'game of the year'? More than one game can win an award like that, becuase nearly every single publication does its own GOTY Awards, with all staff feeling differently about different games and giving awards to different ones. GOTY isnt a fact or anything, its s group of peoples collective opinions usually based on a voting system.
