THQ to be auctioned off, title-by-title.

Damnit this is sad. THQ is a company very near-and-dear to my gaming heart. It feels like one of the last bastions of gaming has fallen.

If you don't know, THQ was a publisher and developer to several great franchises, including Metro 2033, Saints Row, Darksiders, Company of Heroes, Titan Quest, Homefront, and several other in-development games and well known franchises.

This is really really sucky. In a world where you can't go 12 months without a new Call of Duty game, or [INSERT SPORTS GAME HERE], good games like this are hard to come by. And when developers like EA and Activision create games, especially PC games, that are shells of what a good game used to mean, hearing they are in the bidding for franchises like this, frankly breaks my heart.

Requescat en pace, THQ, I'll miss you.

Although, to sound like an ass here, does it really matter? people are either sad because of people losing their jobs or because they think there's no hope of these franchises being good again. We all knew THQ was already doing poorly economically (hence the whole humble indie bundle deal) and saw their crash coming. Just because that these franchises will be under a new name doesn't mean an entire team of devs will be wiped or that they're inherently doomed. It's sad for nostalgia's sake, but these franchises weren't going anywhere in their current state and this is mostly just business.

I don't think that any of the "recent" company purchases by bigger companies have resulted in the franchises of the purchased company being as good as they used to be, prior to the transaction.

Then again I am biased because of the whole EA/Bioware thing, so what do I know?
