What I'd love to see is a survey that summarizes why players that quit a game gave up on it. I imagine that DA2 sold better than DA:O, but that by itself doesn't say a lot.

I wonder how much financial incentive a company would need, or be prepared to spend to learn why people didn't complete their games. If you dropped a game half way through and then they send you a survey asking why with a bribe to complete it.
