Quoted from Rocky-Apollo:
for me the ideal is 2 Bally / Williams, 2 Stern
Great post - I enjoyed reading your reasoning. I think you highlighted why I haven't been able to come to an answer for myself - namely the B/W to Stern split.
I don't think my ideal mix would be 2 Bally/Williams and 2 Stern; I think I would probably prefer a 3 ratio. But picking just one Stern is nearly impossible -- LOTR is awesome, but completely different than Tron or Star Trek.. But on the other hand, it would be hard to pick 2 and settle on only 2 B/W titles...
I need more time to think -- or a higher limit!
