I thought X-Com was well advertised? I saw a lot of press about it on game websites and I think I even saw a TV advert for it unless my memory is playing tricks.

It didn't have a big EA-style budget advertising campaign but it was fairly well promoted.

The lack of Enslaved in the poll makes me physically ill.


umm..people generally didn't like the game.


Are you new to this board? Most people here love it.


Yet no one mentions it other than YOU?

Think before you type, ok?

I reckon Binary Domain and Vanquish didn't have much advertising but they were certainly better marketed than Deadly Premonition. DP is still a fairly cult game that a lot of players haven't heard of. It is more of a sleeper hit than those other games.

Binary Domain and Vanquish both got demos. Deadly Premonition didn't.
It is tough to call something a sleeper when the company is willing to spend the extra money to make a demo. That is millions in marketing right there.

Rayman Origins

I'm surprised to see Dead Space on that list, i was still playing my ps2 when it came out. Was it really poorly received at first? I always assumed that franchise was a hit from the getgo.
