A second game, which runs well, but looks like ass and plays as stale as Zeldafans tronies after a weekend of ocarina of time also sells poorly.

Hmm...pc gaming is dying or developers are killing it?

It's been proven over and over, make a solid all around game and you will have solid all around sales.

Make a sh*tty port (ut3) or a pc exclusive (crysis) that cant even run on the highest-end pc and yeah, gernally that would mean low sales.

What are people suppose to do? Flock to a game they cant run and a game they've played 4 times already, with slightly updated graphics.

Sick of pirating always being the "culprit".

If developers would make something worth $50 people would pay it.
Like System Shock? Or Thief? Or any number of other great games that were killed off because of poor sales?
