Yeah PS3Died is showing to be a dumb@$$ for insinuating I am stupid for not buying this game.

I personally don't find HR that funny, an paying 10 bucks to point-and-click my way through something (as opposed to having to use hand-eye coordination) does not sound fun at all to me. It seems like the website has a huge fan base, so kudos to the company cashing in on that to make their $$$.

@ alxtlvra: the game has been criticized by reviewers. I find it funny that losers come out here to plead for people not to download it.

I think quality and sales rarely correlate.

Lil Wayne's album showed a huge lack of creativity but folks bought that stuff

With all the great literature out there, the movies that make the most money recently have been based off of comic books when movies that receive critical acclaim from stories that received critical acclaim when they were in print don't always make a lot of funds.

Why should this be any different with video games?

I really find it hilarious and sad that people get "insulted" by this. It must seem the there are more people that play the Wii than just those who read this site. I won't lie, I bought the game based on the review. The guy said it had a good control scheme. I knew and enjoyed the concept beforehand. That was enough for me to give it a try. A lot of the review made it seem that the reviewer thought he had a duty to get the reader NOT to buy the game so that they could put out more video games in which spaceships fly around and shoot down other spaceships (because that has never been done before).

A lot of people seem elitist because people don't like the "right" kind of games. Those people are those who gain the bad reputation for those who play video games. Buy the games you like. I will by the games I like. Do you honestly think you are going to get a house full of girls and guys after a night out to kick back and play Toki Tori? It seems like a lot of folks who own the Wii are interested in party games that a lot of people enjoy. Do you guys actually think Pong Toss is going to outsell games like Dr. Mario for long? Relax.

I love how so may people get pissed off by this. I bought the game (and I own Dr. Mario), am happy with it, and am not surprised it is so high. I have some friends who got it too. It is an original concept for a game and probably bought by people who enjoy playing the real thing. Considering the point of the game, the graphics of the people don't really matter much. The control scheme works well. The addition of points and Speed Toss are cool additions that I have had fun with.

It seems people don't like the concept so they whine about it. There was whining when it came out. Now there is whining that people are buying it. I think turn-based RPG games are stupid. I don't get mad that Final Fantasy sells lots of games. I read an interview with the guys from JV Games. They weren't trying make a game to insult all your precious Final Fantasy, Mega Man games. They put out a video game that people who like playing pong might like to play in a limited space. They did something never done before and people respond with "beer pong is boring anyway."

I don't think the game will remain high on the list for very long. I find it laughable that this website would tell people to "stop the madness" that is created by buying a game the customers might enjoy playing. People want to take away these guys' money because they made a budget title that is fun to its fan-base.
