No, putting out a demo just delays a game's release and causes more pressure on developers.

No, demos aren't indicative of the final game and are a waste of time

Just wanted to now everybody's opinion. Personally I think that more games on X1 should have some for of demo, most notably AC4, Ryse, and Forza. What are your thoughts?
LoL is an accelerated MMO. You pick a character, you grind mobs, do some PVP, end game comes 30-50 mins in and you raid baron or do 5vs5.

Developers have to put time aside to make demos when they could work on the actual game. I just watch videos.

usually from watching a vid, I can tell if ill like a game or not....but there are games that I wouldn't normally be interested in but I played the demo and went out and purchased the next day. I think all games should have Some sort of demo, even if its a small one.....it gives people who wouldn't normally be interested in your game a chance to be blown away by it.
