99% of developers nowadays whine like a fucking mule if their game doesn't sell 87 million copies.
I always think of Crytek, when someone mentions "whiny" developers

Remember the whining about the sales of Crysis: "Meh, meh, meh, pirates, stupid PC customers, it's all YOUR fault! We cancel further patch support and YOU are to blame and no one else!! *door slamming*"

Well, but in the long run Crysis was one of the most succesfull PC only titles of the entire EA catalogue, selling more than 3 million units and an additional 1.5 million units of Warhead.
