No what it means is they've turned their back on the people who got them where they were in the first place, for profits and easy money.
You can make buffed up muscly retard characters with zero depth and people eat em up.
I could make GoW characters in my sleep.
The only area where Epic has any clout in my opinion, and that's very little, is the middleware business. The UDK is an excellent way for gamers to strike out on their own with a AAA game engine.
UE3 can make some very good games at studios that actually have talent.
Super MNC, Blacklight, Tribes, etc, those are some lesser known (and f2p!) games that are better than 80% of the crud that Epic's put out in the last 10 years.
