I think the biggest tragedy is the loss of Big Huge Games which had a good pedigree and put out decent games.

People don't care as much about pretty graphics and realistic voice-overs as they did five years ago. People want to have fun. The end.

Well, looking at the buying frenzy that surrounded both Skyrim and Diablo III, I don't agree with that statement. AAA games will sell millions, but I don't think that's the case with a first run game. 38 studios should have followed in the footsteps of the Trine or Torchlight teams, building a small initial high quality game to build hype and name recognition, and improving on it in round 2. Also, too: "Reckoning: Kingdoms of Amalur"? Really? Skyrim, Torchlight, Diablo, Battlefield, all one word titles.

Skyrim has the longest title of any of the bunch that you name. It's not Skyrim. It's The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

And plenty of people refer to it as Reckoning. One word. The title had nothing to do with it not living up to their expectations.
