Out of curiosity, do you know that by experience (i.e. you have programming background?).
Besides, we know that everything in this universe is possible to achieve but its time consuming duh!! do you think we can wait 8-10 years to play a decent game? (DNF anybody?) people are aiming to get the best in the shortest possible time rather than waiting for too long till the game gets outdated by the time of its release.
