Great reviews, No sales...

As someone involved in  publishing, this is the one that always kind of irks me.  You keep hearing about these great games, everyone loves them, they win all these awards and then a few months later, the company closes down or they never release a follow up product to this "new line" of RPG products.  This seems to happen a LOT of places.  The Oscars. The Emmys. The Harvey Awards. The Ennies. Things get great reviews, but not that many people have actually seen it.  Hell even my personal favorite, The Wire, falls under this.  When the quality is high and the people should want to purchase or pay to see or do, they don't.  Are the reviews wrong? Or even better, do reviews actually matter?  Talk to you later...
