Will the score of a game drop the price of the game?

ie) Star Trek The Game, Aliens Colonial Marines, The Walking Dead by Activision all scored horribly in reviews.

Can we expect to see the price for these games drop significantly at retail stores or will they keep the premium price even if it did horrible.

Aliens and walking dead already have dropped for this reason but it's not the reviews alone it's the fact that people don't buy these games

Too many terrible games....

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct
The Game of Thrones
Alines: Colonial Marines
Star Trek: The Game

Why do movie tied games always suck?
And why do video game to movie adaptations always do so poorly.

Duke Nukem Forever went the way of terrible...

Because little effort is put into movie games and they are rushed out. Some 16-bit era games and the Riddick ones were good.

You know, whenever a poster uses the terms "b**** and whine" or "piss and moan" or something similar, I simply ignore the entire post.

Incorrect. As terrible as they may be sometimes, licensed tie-in products can still sell very well. Even in the face of terrible reviews. For example, The Walking Dead Survival Instinct was the 9th best selling game of March.

Because most of them they are given a tiny budget and rushed out the door to coincide with the movie's release with very little QA testing done. The new Star Trek looks decent if they spent more time ironing out the insane glitches.

Slow sales will drop the price of a game. Of course, poor review scores can contribute to slow sales.

Yep. You can still find new LE copies of MoH:Warfighter, not because it's a bad game (which, if you check any self-respecting reviewer, has since amended it's decisions, stating it's not the coming of satan they made it out to be) but because the sheep believed written reviews and some guy whos terrible at video game's videos.

Also I'm pretty sure A:CM is still full price.
