THQ puts out other quality products. Just because the WWE games have been in a decline in overall quality versus what is promised doesn't mean the company deserves to go out of business.


Please name one that isn't Saints Row. If Saints Row 4 is a dud, that is the final nail in the coffin.


Red Faction Guerrilla.

I blame WWE. They're letting the games get as stale as the show and don't seem to be doing anything about it. They have no major competition atm so they dont care.


I'll agree this is a valid point, though not the source for all the blame. THQ/Yukes will make one new innovation, but at the same time they end up breaking something they added previously. It's just a bad track record adding up each year. Someone else should be given a chance to run with the ball. As it stands THQ/Yukes have the rights until 2017 I think. Quite a while to wait for a regime change.

Never heard of it, but I won't deny it since I have no knowledge of the product. I think it's fair to state though that Saints Row followed by WWE are the two cash cows.

Awww isn't that special, you want thousands of people to lose their jobs because you dislike the games they make. What do you or your parents do for a living. I hope whatever company they work for goes out of business. Just so you can understand how it feels.

If you dislike the games don't buy them. Don't be hopeful that something happens to the company so thousands of people are forced to find new jobs, that just downright offensive to me.

Actually the Red Faction franchise is quite massive. THQ actually make a large portion of their revenue from movie/TV show adaptations.

Like it or not (and i don't like it) Pro Wrestling has a massive stigma that comes along with is. Wrestling is not cool to the majority and i'm not sure it ever will be again. This in its self contributed to the fact that there were no offeres bid by other publishers/developers for a new WWE game.

And allow me to add other quality THQ titles to the two I obliged you with.

Destroy All Humans.
Warhammer series
WWE Day of Reckoning 1/2
WWF No Mercy
S.T.A.L.K.E.R

Hate the developers, not the publisher.

Previous Smackdown titles.

There's no argument that they've gotten lazy. But to wish that a company goes out of business over it is ignorant.
