I think if a game is good, people will play it.[/quote:5368eb11ee]
I think I would have to disagree with you there. Sadly, for the so called ‘average’ ‘joe-soap’ gameplayer I don’t think the playability of the game has much has much effect on whether they buy a title or not. Call me cynical, but thats just the way I see things happening in reality, and from first hand experience i’ve seen it happening also many times before.
Agreed. There have been many games that have received critical acclaim and yet fall short on the sales front. Psychonauts immediately springs to mind.
