Tell GR: Should You Expect Games To Be Broken At Launch?

Video games have become massive projects with an incredibly technical scale requiring thousands of man hours and more. Saying Mass Effect 3 was unfinished might be justified because they put out an Extended Cut DLC pack that changed and added to the ending, but say it was released in an unfinished state still isn't the fairest way to explain the situation.

I think the natural response for many gamers is yes, but I've come to expect these things.

With games growing bigger and more connected, I think these things should be expected. I'm not saying you should accept the disappointing performance of big names throughout the industry, but you shouldn't be surprised.

What do you think? Do you expect rocky launches from your favorite games? What kind of return should gamers see for their launch day investments?

Should you expect games to be broken at launch?
