Virgin? heh I dare say the 3 yrs I spent with the psycho nympho wench, gave me more combined and varied experiences than half the board members will ever have in their entire lives. heh
I dont mind a game having an Easy mode. If people are giant pansies, and cant handle failure without crying and throwing temper tantrums... then more power to em.
However, to make it so that the rest of the game playing world has to all the sudden enjoy baby level games just cause the WHINERS complain, is just plain Ridiculous.
Basically, it gave no incentive for the serious fans.. the ones who put half their weekly earnings into coin slots to get good... no option but to walk away in disgust. And when that happened... the arcades started to fall like stones.
And BTW, just because a game was released on consoles does not mean they sold well. Ive talked to people at Midway actually... and they told me that the remainder of poor selling games were actually shipped back to the company at their expense. Basically, they Eat the losses.
