**** WHY DO GOOD GAMES NOT SELL??? ****

Now with BIS going under, joing the moldering corpses of Looking Glass Studios and the old Microprose, I'm left again to wonder...

For the life of me, I cannot figure out why Planescape: Torment, System Shock 2, NOLF/NOLF 2 and Undying flopped in the marketplace. H**l, even Deus Ex and the Thief series only sold moderately well. Yet Enter the Matrix sells millions. I just don't get it.

Seriously - if deep, complex and rich games sold well, you wouldn't get the debacle that is Deus Ex: Invisible War (now with more powerups!). Why is it that none of these games sell well? Are we just such a small market that a company simply can't break even on us? Is it a failure of marketing?
