ILM gets end users in to test their games and see if odd-ball key strokes cause failure or if there are confusing parts of the game that the end user just doesn't get. If they can do this, why can't the rest of the tech industry?

The gaming industry is known for its GREAT manuals and online help, combining both creativity and really useful info. I've read dozens of post mortems for many different games. The most successful went through rigerous user testing, the least successful were laden with problems and never saw a user until the product hit the market....mmmmm you'd think that would be enough evidence......
