Maybe It's Fair And Logical To Say CoD Deserves To Sell
Business is business. Supply and demand. It's pretty simple and straightforward, actually.
We can all wish things were a little different. We can make valid arguments as to why Call of Duty shouldn't be the biggest name in the video game industry right now. Some might even be able to make legitimate arguments for saying CoD actually holds us back in some ways.
But is it really correct to say that the CoD titles don't deserve the sales they get? Is that an accurate statement? I'm not so sure... Logically speaking, if a company creates a product that everyone wants and a whole lot of people buy it, then things have gone as planned. The company delivered what was demanded and the consumers responded. Tit for tat. This is how business operates; it's the core of business, it's what makes business utilize an extraordinarily simple philosophy. Of course, that being said, this "extraordinarily simple philosophy" can become immensely complicated, as just about anyone will tell you.
Therefore, if you have an argument for or against the statement in the title of this article, we'd like to hear it. Do you support the idea that each CoD title absolutely deserves to break sales records? Or can you argue that in fact, these games don't deserve the sales they achieve?
