Derived in thought and execution from the sensibilities of the Hollywood blockbuster…
That sure is true. Why are game companies so dead set on getting everyone to buy in the first week of release!? They hype the beehovies out of a game for months before it comes out, advertise all sorts of pre-order bonuses, pay to be a background image on a website and, a month later, the game may as well not exist. At least until there's some DLC to sell - which also should be bought on release day.

These are GAMES not movies! They get patched and made better with age. Civ 5 just got a huge patch, how about some advertising there? "Now with 100% more hotseat gameplay!"
The very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common: instead of altering their views to fit the facts, they alter the facts to fit their views….
