Now that Activision has successfully milked and ran two genre's into the ground

What genre do you think they will opt for next?

Although not alone in the PPB demise and surely they weren't alone in the PAAGG downfall that is fast approaching, they are one of the most flagrant offenders.

I, for one, see the absurd sales of COD and shakes my head in disappointment -- Maybe I just don't get it. Maybe I'm alone, but I just can't connect with a gun on a screen shooting things no more than I could connect with pushing plastic buttons on cheaply shaped instruments.

It's just not for me. As a musician, if I wanna play guitar -- This Sophistocrat <--- He's gonna play guitar. Not push buttons on an absurd piece of plastic.

I think, now more than ever, they are realizing they've milked the genre and are probably scrambling for something to work as a contingency plan. I believe gamers got fed up... I think this is the final straw. It sold crazy good still, but it's on the decline and next year we might even see it slip to record lows.

Well SC. Call of Duty isn't going anywhere soon. And even if it does. Activision will be fine. They have many successful franchise still strong to show for their 33 years in the industry to fall back on.

These topics read more like the ramblings of a madman every time. Good job with that.

DmC looks like a good game. I also enjoyed the latest Final Fantasy and Resident Evil games. I like video games.
