First, I did not mean to imply that gamers will quit gaming, SW, DF2 seem to have promise (By the way do you know who has the publishing rights to quake2?).

Second, while I apprecate monolith's commitment to blood, it seem to me and from what I've read that blood is just a slight improvement on a good, but old, game(Duke). Like you said the next few months are going to be very competitive and I have a feeling that blood will end up in the discount bin; it just does not have the revolutionary game play that makes a best seller. If you look at past best sellers in any game category,(C&C, Civ, Mech 2) they took gaming to the next level. I really don't think that a engine or graphics sells a game. On the plus side, blood does have the distribution arm of gt to get it into stores.

As to your suggestion that I look at the postings on GT's site, I tend to discount anything posted to a site that has a vested interst in seeing a game succeed. If you find some independent reviews,(PC gamer Cnet etc.) I would be happy to read them.

As for the 150,000 people downloading it, most people will try it once especially since their was so much buzz about it. People downloading it does not guarantee success!
