The All Things Video Games Thread! in Hall Of The Super Topics Posted September 15, 2008 And let's be honest here, there is a glut of mediocre games out there. I'll drink to that. And I'll take it one further that nowadays there are a lot of mediocre games being trumped up as big hub-bub first level titles. Every other week they are pimping the new "best thing ever" game with massive print and television marketing blitzes. Games have become just like Hollywood... they deluge you with ads to try to get you to buy their "crap game of the week" game before you can figure out it's crap. Does anyone in the video game market know if it's still like the old ET days? If a big push title sells for crap can the retailers charge back all the unsold games? You'd think if that was still in place all the crap game makers would be closing their doors eventually... or maybee it IS just like Hollywood and the one or two really big games end up subsidizing all the crap games.
