love it and enjoy it anyways? It didn't even have to be an online game... Just any game at all. Does it ever affect you when a game you love has weak or low sales? Do you ever wish that more people would jump in and buy the game so they, too, can experience it's awesomeness?

But if sales don't matter to you... can I propose this scenario for you?

Have you ever been with a group of friends... Say 5 to 10...? Was there a pool or even a lake nearby...? Did you ever jump off into the pool or lake by yourself, all alone... Everyone else carrying on in conversation without you?

If so, how did that feel?

I'm curious.

Terrible troll.


I'm not trolling -- I'm asking a legit question here. I am an avid buyer of low end games that nobody buys.

Conan
Dark Void
Motorstorm
LBP 2
Vanquish
Civ Rev
Resistance 3
R&C (all of them)

This isn't a troll topic, it's a topic about how we perceive sales and the affects they have on our taste as a whole.

Tanked
Slang To suffer a sudden decline or failure: “Steady investors . . . kept their heads when the stock market tanked in October 1987”

Playing a game with low sales is so not like jumping into a pool by yourself.....

Definition: to do poorly or decline rapidly; fail: The movie tanked at the box office. The game sold under projection.

How so? you "jumped" in and bought the game at retail and nobody else did. Sounds alot like jumping into a pool by yourself to me.

Sales wise... Sales wise... I love the game, I do -- One of the best experiences this gen. But face it, game sold poorly. They went on record saying they wanted to sell 3 to 4 million copies. LBP 2 was supposed to sell 6 million copies. This is what where' talking about here... games who come in under projection, way under.
