if you realize you get x increase in sales for spending y in motion capturing hookers. That's an easy number for a buisness major/investor to work with. However writing a good story, ai or gameplay takes thought, thought isn't as consistent on cost to outcome. Much easier to recycle the stuff you did a decade ago with shinier graphics.
