    Go to jail would be Go to the VATs chamber. Free parking would be Freeside?

    The triple-A industry is pushing itself towards another crash.

    More money equals bankruptcy? Backwards logic.

    The movie industry's merchandising dwarfs the game industry and it has no effect on it's viability. It's not 1983 -- the game industry is too big to crash now.

    Now where's my goddamn fallout 4 undies. :angry:

    The crash was about a major loss in consumer trust, was it not?

    The console game industry was basically just Atari at that point, so you can see how a lack of competition made them complacent to the point of shoveling crap without a care of consumer revolt.

    This couldn't happen today given multiple big studios, 10's of medium studios, and 1000's of indies.

    it definitely was based on a lack of trust. Too many consoles saturated the market like Bally, Fairchild, APF, ColecoVision, Intellivison, Vectrex etc. And lets not forget Pac-Man and ET.

    EDIT:
    .....and the 5200. That goddamn 5200

    "Atari: 80% market share by 1981" http://www.giantbomb.com/atari/3010-182/

    Like what I said before: it was a one horse Atari race and they didn't try very hard after dominating their competition. This led to the home console crash. Now we have at least 8-9 viable platforms and dozens of large studios competing for billions of dollars of game industry capital. Too big too fail even if a few get complacent/greedy/untrustworthy.

    "lack of trust" well yeah, that's what happens with years of substandard product.

    And going back to the first post I took issue with: what the hell does merchandising have to do with game quality? You really think gamers will judge/boycott Fallout or the game industry at large based on the existence of Monopoly boards and Pipboy underwear? Please.

    Is this a Fallout monopoly or a Fallout new vegas monopoly?
    If it was a Fallout Monopoly I'd expect to see things like Mariposa, The boneyard, West tek research facility, New Reno, NCR (The fallout 2 location)

    Finally! This is just the kind of game that compliments the game in the perfect sense. Think about it...trekking through the barren outlands of fallout, scavenging for food and bottle caps, going through wrecked houses and avoiding rangers and humming "War...war never changes" to yourself. There's nothing but scattered trees, mutated beasties and wrecked ruins. That's just the PERFECT setting for a tycoon game where you constantly attempt to control territory, build houses and hotels, and make long term investments in large sums of money...right? :tpi:

    /sarcasm

    Christ allmighty. I like fallout (a lot), and fancy a game of monopoly. But what kind of an idiot does it take to think that fallout creates a good monopoly setting? For monopoly, it's probably the least interesting gaming franchise outside tetris. But they make it anyway.
