I was reading in a book recently that states that the *average* time necessary for a board/party game to become successful is 4 years. This made me curious if there were numbers of this nature available for computer games.
I assume that large corporations who produce computer games in mass quantity have determined this type of statistic...my question is whether their results have been published anywhere.
The book, BTW:
The Game Inventors Handbook, 2nd Edition
