When the F are Game developers going to learn??
I sorry but I am really sick of hearing people complain about games getting lost in the shuffle because everyone is releasing in Oct/Nov. ( if you havent heard that is the buzz about Titanfall2)
If you dont want to get lost in the shuffle....release at a different time. There are plenty of times during the year where the player base is screaming for something new to play. But all of these idiotic companies plan their year around an Oct/Nov release, it is moronic.
This age old concept that christmas has to drive all sale for the year is out of date. Doom is a perfect example. If Doom had of released now it would have been a flop, but because it released when there was nothing else to play more people tried it, reviewed it and fell in love with it. Then the player base blew up as the news spread.
Want a list the games that should have come out in May and would have been more successful if they had?
Batman return to Arkham
Ninetendo classic mini console
And yes TitanFall 2
But no all this shit and more will come out Now to compete for Christmas $$$ and lots of it will be an economic failure all because it was released at the wrong time! In Real estate they say Location, location, location...in tech ( especially games) it should be all about the timing!!! Get it out there, in a clean version, when there is nothing else out and then watch the groundswell of love gamers will give ya!
