Yeah, but consider that an infomercial is free to watch and requires no
more knowledge to use than the ability to turn on the tv andflip through
channels. Unless a game removes all interactive elements from it (in which
case it's not really a game anymore), the interface is inevitably going to
be more complicated than that. Everquest also nets a LOT more per 'viewer'
than any infomercial does.
