Plus with the way games are costing these days smaller and more risky games need to be released on platforms where they don't have to spend a fortune to be successful or risk spending a low amount only to be disregarded for poor visuals.
I wouldn't say Suikoden VI was that risky. Suikoden V was well received and I thought it did fairly well.
I actually thought the first 2/3 were pretty good and there were some nice character bits. Particularly
the bits with Davros calling the Doctor a hypocrite for not picking up a gun, but turning humans into weapons. And Sarah Jane seeing Davros. And the bit at the end with Wilf saying goodbye to the Doctor was good too. It's just that RTD can't write a fucking decent two parter
