Mr. Schafer just recently told gamers that they shouldn’t worry about game sales…it’s not our job. He wants us to just enjoy games. It was those statements that spread round the internet quite quickly. Now, Mr. Schafer has expanded upon those comments in his own blog…
I think games sales matter a lot. I just think that the people who should worry about sales are the people who have vested financial interest in a game. If your money or livelihood is dependent on a game, then you should concern yourself with its sales. But if it isn’t, then you should try to relax and just enjoy playing them.
“But,” you say, “If people don’t buy the game I love, then there won’t be any more games like it!”
I’m saying that’s just not true.
