there is nothing inherently wrong with low budget games, the problem arises when your whole library of exclusives consists of them.
There's nothing wrong with a low budget game but it's a problem when you have a lot of them? Huh?
Can you read? There's a problem when your system doesn't produce any big budget exclusives, it means it's not getting the kind of support you think it is, if publishers are unwilling to create them.
It's not a problem.
I don't gain more enjoyment out of a game simply because it is an exclusive. A developer getting paid to release a game for a single platform isn't my idea of support either. I am not sure if you're being serious or pulling your trademark ignorant console player stereotype.
Publishers have no reason to create truckloads of PC exclusives when most of them can be ported to consoles by scaling things down. If they can cash it in that way, and everyone is happy, then there's really no reason to keep things exclusives.(Although there are some in PC community which are never happy)
So you end up with games that are multiplatform in name, but offer a different experience depending on which platform they're played on (i.e. console or pc).
Games like Battlefield3 and Skyrim are recent examples of this, and there's more but I'm not going to waste my time thinking/listing.
2012 has seen some high budget games on PC too, such as Diablo3, GuildWars2, SecretWorld, more WoW, and there's upcoming games like Arma3 and Dota2.
Why a budget even matters is beyond me. I don't know of many sensible people that get their enjoyment out of how much money was spent making the game (not to mention most of that money goes towards marketing, not actual game development)
If big budget games is really what you crave, then you should just come out and admit something that all of us have known for quite some time: you is disappoint with PS3 and want a 360. Nothing to be shameful of, it gets the exclusives with the biggest budgets such as Halo after all and unlike Sony which has to buy developers just to make them support their backwater platform, the 360 gets love unconditionally. Just look at how MS has Skyrim's high-budget DLC and how well most big budget titles run on the 360 but not on the PS3.
Hope Santa delivered this year.
