Managed to stir up a lot of comments there. Ok, so I was wrong. I have to agree that the mechanics of Halo, DMC, GTA actually are fun by themselves in many ways, and I probably would appreciate blue square versions of all those games on some level. But if I was an executive I wouldn't have greenlighted any of those games on the basis of a blue square demo, because they would lack the visceral fun that I believe the console market craves. The non-blue-square versions of those games have that visceral fun in spades.
