Default The Escapist - The Rise & Fall of Troika

Let me made the point I made earlier even clearer.

Big corporations like EA doesn't want to settle for less profit (than the one to which they are used to getting). EA is a corporation and as such it is sole responsibily is
getting profits to its shareholders. I think this is even written/stated by laws, at least in the U.S.A.

If you then promises that EA's investment eventually will turn a profit in say 2-3 years time, then my best guess is that EA would say 'no thank you' and continue to
release FIFA and other sports games etc.

On the matter of man hours, I agree completely. I have seen modders who have
made a better story quest wise than say Bethesda did in their Oblivion game or who have created lengthier & more interesting quest than Bethsoft did, especially the modder who created the mod with the three towns. (I forgot the name of mod, sorry… :bash: )
