Lost a sale due to status of the first two games.
I like to play the original games in a franchise before moving on. I've heard great things about this series and would have gladly bought the third one on launch, here, except for the miserable status the first two titles seem to be in. As a result, they've lost my interest in spending $30 on their new release on top of what I would have spent for the first two. A little effort maintaining those and keeping them reliable and playable would have gone a long way.
Has anyone else made this decision, for the same reasons?
I guess the new community system has erased all of the pre-existing discussions on these games, but there used to be many threads for the first two games warning people as to the major problems they've run into just trying to get the games to even launch.
