Default Company mergers/buyouts

Everyone has probably heard about this already, but Blizzard and Activision are merging to become Activision Blizzard. Technically it is Vivendi's gaming group not just Blizzard, but Blizzard is the largest piece of it.

As a gamer this bothers me. I really haven't seen many mergers and buyouts result in good things for us gamers. Usually we just see more, faster produced crappy sequels and then eventually the smaller studio has their name/studio killed and they get completely absorbed into the other company.

First Bioware and now Blizzard. This is not a good trend for the RPG genre.

And what kind of name is Activision Blizzard? I hope they really don't actively use this.
