On a personal achievement note, I can finish the original Mario Bros. without warping and without losing a man.

Given the marginal success rate of 95% of the games out there, the NDP would have been better off buying these developers lottery tickets. They exhibit similar payoff patterns.

There's a reason why the industry has heavies such as EA, Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo. A few blockbuster titles (New Super Mario Bros. - highly recommended) subsidize the company's entire gaming library. For every Halo, God of War or Madden NFL, there are literally hundreds of Warriors of Might and Magic, DinoStalker, etc.
