Is it to make themselves feel better about their purchases??? The gamecube sold the worst of its respected gen and I had a ton of fun on it, I also had fun with the Dreamcast, maybe even more so than the ps2 in any 2 year period (since DC only lasted 2 years).
Some of the best movies I ever seen didn't make $500 million at the box office, some barely made $10 million. (fear and loathing in las vegas).
Avatar was crap, the Wii was crap. I just don't get it. COD sells the most every single year and its the laughing stock of system wars. Sales shouldnt even be in the discussion of which console or game is the best.
its definitely to justify their purchase, which is why you see fanboys go ride or die for a company on here, specifically a certain group of them
