    also im 100% on craigs side. we need more demos. I would never have played mass effect 2 when i did without a demo. I bought  the game maybe 10-15 minutes after finishing the Me2 demo. Demos help me make purchase decisions.

    Honestly this E3 really wasnt that big a deal to me this year. Usually week prior to E3 Im super hyped up but this E3 there was just something about this year that didnt make me feel so hyped. When it finally happened i just felt so disappointing. There were definitely a few game announcements that made me excited but at the end this years E3 definitely felt like one of the worst ive seen in recent years. Idk maybe all my years of watching E3 has just made me jaded or maybe i expect way too much from e3 .

    I don't know if this format works with just 2 people, it's less of a conversation and more of two people taking turns complaining, you need counter arguments.

    The return of investment on demos is actually pretty low. Extra Credits did a video breaking this down a few years ago, but to sum it up quickly, they examined 9 possible outcomes resulting from the quality of the demo and the game. Only 2 of the outcomes ended up being strongly positive for the developer. While these are generalizing a bit, when there is only a 22% chance that putting out a demo would be good for you, it just doesn't make any business sense to make one. While I would love for there to be more demos, realistically they are just not a good idea.

    The Bayonetta Demo on the PS3 made me buy it day one. When my PS3 died I bought it on my 360 and eventually later on my wii-U as well. I bought three copies of a game I'd have never played if I had never played that demo. Now that's anecdotal but I'm sure there are many stories like that. Sure a demo may turn a player off but we wouldn't be hearing about mass returns if people had demos to play.

    They don't release demos anymore because half the games are broken at launch. They don't want people to know their games are broken because they'll lose money. They have to rely on the hype trane. Look at NMS, if people demo'd that nobody would have bought it.
