Comment An interesting but not thorough study (Score 3, Insightful) 236

I'd like to see a more thorough investigation with this method. The paper says they used 33 reviews from Gamespot UK to collect the data, and while I don't disagree with its findings (Gotta have good controls, bad plot doesn't matter), I wouldn't turn Table 5 (categories by importance) into a Game Design Bible. Then again, the paper does say "This paper is primarily intended to inspire further work in the field."

High prices at launch are a tax on impatient people. Also, the FPS genre is relatively overcrowded, so if you have a good/new product come out for half what the other guys are charging that's a great way to stand out.
