But the thing is Eternal darkness was an exclusive to the gamecube console. There were MILLIONS and MILLIONS of people that never owned a gamecube and have never played Eternal darkness. So that's probably why. Had you released it on PC also, you might of got a larger response from a kickstarter project , because that would of made the  audience larger. Theres so many people that have no idea what this game is, myself included, because I never owned a gamecube.

True, but not every company has a pedophile working as a developer.

@liotinedario i think GTA4 was very dissapointing and inferior to the others, in the context of when it came out of course.

Just my opinon though.

And perhaps if you paid attention you would know that they pretty much fired the guy when it came out. Do you think a company would willingly have such a guy work for them? He kept it a secret for obvious reasons - and got what he deserved when it came out. Don't get hung up on something like this and interpret it the wrong way.

A matter of opinions really. Many people for example thought that L4D2 came out to early, it hadn't yet been that long ever since the first of that series. But tons of people bought it anyway. The difference is that the game was still good, had lots of improvements over the first and etc. Combine that with Valve's good reputation and you got a sorta f*ck up that history simply forgot since the goods outweighed the negatives by a whole lot.

@yeah_28 @liotinedario mhhh.. after San Andreas there wasnt enough meat in the game... still if it wasnt called GTA4 but... i dunno... immigrant oddissee, for example, it would be less disappointing, no?

That happens to be your opinion, certainly. But not everybody shares the same views. DNF was in the eyes of many a colossal disappointment void of any fun. Yet people still put faith in those teams, don't they? Bioware fucked up with Mass Effect 3 multiple times. lots of studios fucked up with DNF - but most people deserve a second chance. Denis is not the sole reason responsible for everything that went wrong, and it has been years since then. I rather give him a second chance then see more Call of Duty bullshit get shoved into the tossbag faces of the young masses for millions of dollars every single year.

@liotinedario @yeah_28 without san andreas maybe, but still dissapointing to me, cause in the whole context of games with an open world it was dissapointing.

Its still an ok game anyway

Come on now, making "pedophile" jokes sounds rather tasteless and would to anybody - at least I hope so.
