->''"The first attempt at a 3D Prince of Persia was the predictably-named ''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersia3D'', technically a ''Franchise/TombRaider'' clone in the same sense that a bucket of mushy peas and old twigs is technically '[[InsultToRocks food.]]' It was [[PolygonCeiling horribly designed]], with bugs up the arse and had a terrible habit of arbitrarily killing the player with leap-of-faith gameplay and unlabeled traps... Let's be more generous than reviewers of the time and [[LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain say no more about it]], except that it was ''a huge turd.''"''

->''"''[[VideoGame/WingCommander Privateer 2: The Darkening]]'' is virtually unplayable. No, really, it barely fucking works. Back in the day, I remember this game crashed ''all the goddamn time'', but even today on the comparatively much more stable DosBox systems, this game bombed almost ''every single time'' I ran it: It crashed when loading gameplay, it crashed when loading movies, it crashed when I took off, it crashed when I landed, it crashed when I tried to save, ''and'' load, and it even crashed [[EpicFail when I tried to quit.]]"''

->''"No other industry would be able to get away with what the technology industries get away with. Book publishers are not able to release a book with the understanding that despite some of the pages being missing readers will be able to grab them online when they’re eventually available. Shoe manufacturers don’t gradually release 6.1″, 6.2″, and 6.25″ shoes, claiming each one as the solution to people requiring a size 7. No mops fit into only certain buckets and eventually require you to buy a new bucket which will require a new mop in turn. Yet the technology industries thrive on such techniques because geeks happily allow them to."''

->''"...we delivered a game that was pre-alpha at best. It needed at least another three months, if not another six to get it to a playable level of quality. Knowing we didn't have much time, we cut a lot of corners, and left out features the fans liked, but would have been too time consuming to implement. It was a half-done game, and it shows."''
