Also worth noting: they’ve shot right past (what I think was) the original goal of “give the license away for a song and get at least a few good games,” and reached “games with the license have such a bad rep fewer people are even trying them out.”

I mean, *I* like the Games Workshop IPs - but I gave up on these a while ago. Has anyone done the dirty work of sifting out the ones worth playing? Hit me up if there’s a list or something somewhere...
