Well, it was reasonably priced. Fun? That's arguable.

We can agree here. The graphics is secondary to gameplay. But I don't really think Deer Hunter had much gameplay. It really bothers me that people bought the game because of the price, not the quality.
If I were a game designer for, say, The Operational Art of War or Seven Kingdoms, which both turned in lackluster sales, I would just be really pissed off when Deer Hunter with its few months of work turns out to be so much more successful than the game I worked on for one year, where I was determined to make it better than the rest, to make it good .
