X-mas sales are usually chock full of "shovelware"...hence why games rated "E" comprise 80% of all games sold (clueless parents hitting stores prior to Christmas and buying their kids sh*tty games).
And as a 42 yo gamer, that was precisely what I was getting at.
But you may be right. Maybe it's because the summer is coming to an end and people are more apt to seek out indoor entertainment?
