1.2 mil is a great success especially for a PC game.

you're terribly wrong. I don't know why some americans think NA>everything else considering germany alone makes up 42% of the entire pc market.

if you wanna sell more than 1mil copies, you need to aim for the 360 and ps3.

many consider the gothic series to be one of the best rpg-series ever. yeah, gothic 3 had its fair share of bugs and came out unfinished but the last community patch (nearly 1gig, 2years after release) clearly showed how many fans it has worldwide. Not to speak of the amazing/outstanding soundtrack and worlddesign the game has.

way to say what you are thinking, but you have provided NOTHING to substantiate anything you said.

(alot of games arent even on that list 1 word: bethesda.)

1 mil is NOT that big a deal, it definitely does not equate to a blockbuster.

i want you to prove germany makes up that much of the pc market (so grossly overstated it isnt even funny), also even with that patch gothic 3 is a buggy turd..its a pretty well known fact that some of the bugs just are not fixable, but hey hyperbole till your heart's content.

this thread got derailed before it even left the station, before i just stop looking at it i feel i should point out there is a certain girls necklace that should not be sold. (dont want to spoil it)
