Take2's slaughter of the latest GTA comes to mind. No previewers mentioned needing to create a gta-network account, followed by a windowslive account (really? i need to create two accounts to play a game?). It was also promised to be 'the future of gaming'. So DX9 (when dx10 was already out, along with talk of 11) is the future, and windows live is the future. Why isnt windows live in civ5? Its the future of gaming! Did GTA sell? Sure. Did MW2 sell? Sure. But i know a handful of people (irl) who bought these games who DONT play them now. They bought them cause they loved the previous games and thought there was no way for them to be a let down. Now, theyre coasters. Sure the company is happy, they got their money! But guess what? They wont be buying the next installment. Take2, has taken2 game series from me, first gta, now civ. Ill be buying no copies, so maybe someone else can join the petition and buy 4 copies, to include me.
