Now that you mention it, indeed.. where the heck are all the fresh (new ip) Sci-Fi games, most importantly rpg's , sims and action games?

I think mass effect and dead space are about the only franchises that currently serve real sci-fi. And those are only in the shallowest meaning rpg's... Fallout 3 is at best alternate timeline...

And yeah, i am sick to death of the endless WWII games as well. Why doesn't someone make Silent Hunter just with sci-fi submarines? Or a space sim alá Silent Hunter, just in space.. same goals same gameplay methods except in space/nebula and so on.

It seems developers have all lost their creativity

I'm all in favor of more sci-fi. Sick to death of the endless WWII games over the past decade. I want some sci-fi RPGs! Fallout 3 is the closest we've gotten to that. I'd like to see more, with more variety and imagination in them.

What about correlation between all the sci-fi movies that released the past half year?

Avatar is top and thats sci-fi/romance. One could easily deduct that people want more sci-fi for the moment.

I wonder if theres any studies on this

The top seller is published by Stardock, and only Stardock, that's all it says.
Doesn't pretty much every game only have one publisher?

The top seller is DRM free, says alot.

What has it said all of the times that the top seller has not been DRM free?

To me, it just says that the majority of people who buy games don't even know or care about DRM.

I wonder if there's a correlation between the release of high-profile game like Mass Effect 2, and an increase in sales for other games in the same genre.

This list would certainly hint at that.

Every single one of them a space game. It seems Stardock is aptly named.
