Interesting, not surprising at all, but it does confirm what many have postulated for years. I just wonder if those same suits were somehow exposed to the gripes and complaints of message boards like OS, would anything change.
If I owned stock in a gaming company, I would want them focused on customer satisfaction because the bottom line will almost always follow "suit".
Madden, for instance, is becoming a dead game with my peer group. I am 36 and most of the guys who used to play frequently do not even buy the game anymore. Maybe just maybe, we as gamers need to form an investment group and turn this on its head...

In June 2011, I applied for examiner.com to be a video game journalist with no experience other than putting up reviews on metacritic and having an espn blog. I got paid very little based on hits, but used my resourses such as N4G and reddit and other social networking to build a following. After about six months, I started reaching out to PR companies about review copies of games. The first free game I received was NCAA 13. Could not believe it. Soon Madden, and others followed. I was hired for gamingtruth.com about a month ago to contribute there as well. You just have to follow through and be dedicated, no matter how slow it starts. Eventually, you can amount to something if you're good at what you do. It helps I know how to write, however I have crappy grammar at times.

I appreciate this article. However, so far, we could be talking about ANY occupation where creative personel come into conflict with the suits in corporate.. Just go watch" Private Parts".. perfect example.

Agreed. The stock market rules us all, every occupation.
