Not sure if this belongs in this thread but:

These articles are about using focus groups to create video games. This is akin to developing a game democratically instead of the project manager and his team of experts in their respective field (programming, artwork, level design, etc.) This is the reason the quality of video games has dropped; they are boring and empty. That and the fact that the publishers want to maximize profit so they try to please everyone and end up satisfying no one.

I like how the second article says Nintendo snubbed their focus groups. They've almost always know what they're doing.
