Aren’t gamers on the internet incessantly complaining about Call of Duty being more of the same, and how we should be getting more original titles? Are they the minority, then? Because looking at the Neilsen survey, gamers seem to want more of Call of Duty, Halo, Assassin’s and Resident Evil, just to name a few.

By the way, the survey highlights games to be released between the months of July and December 2012 on current generation consoles. Over 4,800 gamers between the ages ages of 7 and 54 were surveyed across platforms.
