->''"There was no way ''VideoGame/DukeNukemForever'' would have lived up to its hype. Given that it spent so much time in DevelopmentHell, eventually it became a RunningGag about DevelopmentHell and VaporWare, so it reached the point where it became more fun to ''wait'' for ''VideoGame/DukeNukemForever'' than actually ''playing'' the game. During the fifteen years it took for the game to reach our shelves, [[VideoGame/{{Half-Life}} we've]] [[Franchise/{{Halo}} had]] [[VideoGame/SystemShock other]] [[VideoGame/BioShock games]] [[VideoGame/DeusEx jumping]] [[VideoGame/CallOfDuty in]] [[VideoGame/ModernWarfare to]] [[VideoGame/{{STALKER}} fill]] [[VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent the]] void left by ''VideoGame/DukeNukem''."''

->''"I don't get it! {{THQ}}, much like the other three big publishers it was trying to compete with, had fostered this delusional idea that, somehow, spending millions of dollars on marketing for a bad game means that millions would be sold in retail. But holy shit!: Believe it or not, games are kinda [[CrackIsCheaper a little bit expensive.]] People don't buy them with the same kind of subconscious, casual whim that they buy junk food. Review scores, word-of-mouth, and the overall quality of a game is what's supposed to sell the product; not the tasteless, backfiring PR stunts or how many times you can squeeze in a game commercial in-between Cialis."''

->''I went out, and in Paul's Church-yard I bought the play of "[[HenryIV Henry the Fourth]]", and so went to the new Theatre [...] and saw it acted; but my expectation being too great, it did not please me, as otherwise I believe it would.''

->''"When the {{PlayStation 3}} launched, Sony was kind of a dick. Intoxicated by the fart vapors of their own success, they exuded arrogance and dismissiveness. 'We are the best and this is our next console', the company's executives seemed to say while smoking behind a 7-11 and [[ThrewMyBikeOnTheRoof pushing little kids to the ground]]. 'Customers will have to work harder to afford it, and developers will have to work harder to squeeze performance out of it. They should thank us for the honor of simply being able to touch the console.'"''
