A lot of Nintendo's GC games were rushed.
Even annual CoD games get 24 months. Anything under 2 years is pretty tight. You should read interviews with Retro devs. I think Mark Pacini or somebody went on record saying he's amazed the game isn't shitty and he'd change a ton of things if he had a chance.
that's the most fucking retarded rating system for a game I've ever heard. Just because you put time into it makes it good? Are you serious?
Dark Souls 2 is fucking garbage. Paid like $25 for SotFS, got about 30 hours of playtime in it before i dropped it, and that by no means suggests that it's a good game.
People use that metric because after a certain point there's no reason to play a game if you're not getting any joy out of it. Are you really so fucking dense that you can't come to that conclusion?
