Wait, So....

If Infinity Ward makes a new Call of Duty game every year, it's awesome.  If Microsoft puts out a new Halo FPS, it's a great announcement.  If Konami keeps milking the Metal Gear franchise, it's phenomenal.  If Square Enix puts out fourteen Final Fantasy games, they're amazing.  If Nintendo makes ONE new game based on one of the best games ever, they're spinning their wheels and sounding their death knell.  Gotcha.

I can understand cinephiles and audiophiles.  Their appreciation is for tender French movies based on childhood experiences, or for Charlie Parker jazz solos.  But I can't understand the snobbishness of hardcore gamers.  You like games about gore, tits and explosions.  You don't have the right to look down your noses at other fare.
