Sick of excuses about video games that fail

For all of the money in the video games business, it’s just incredible that none of these analysts, developers, executives, or stakeholders has bothered to own up to what the truth about these games failing actually could be. Nobody wants to state the obvious and take responsibility for all of these millions of dollars in development and promotion squandered. So many excuses, but nobody talking straight.

It could be that your game just fucking sucked.


  • Business-school weasels are everywhere, blaming other people for their mistakes.

  • It’s the American way!


    game business is like the movie business. time to use the same fancy accounting.

  • I agree with the article almost completely. It is time for some effort to go back into making great games instead of making great spectacles.
