I’ve commented about what I’ve seen, nothing more. You say that “many can’t be quantified” and you’re right, the word “many” infers no concrete value. Technicalities aside, you know what I’m trying to say.
I called your argument close-minded because, from what I have witnessed, primarily close-minded people use the majority vs. minority argument to make themselves feel like they are part of the “better” group. I can only base what I say off of the real life experiences that I have had.
The confrontational attitude you have shown only serves to hurt your credibility. I have seen all too many people talking about issues with the game that I, myself have experienced. When you say “Can you prove it? I doubt you can.”, it just comes off as rude and condescending. If you want your point to be heard, don’t act that way.
Also, quoting me followed by “(in your words)” is completely fabricated. If you want to quote someone, quote them with the tools provided. However trivial the details, please don’t make things up to reinforce your argument.
I misread what you wrote, my bad. However, my point still stands that bugfixes should take priority when developing or supporting a game.
I may not have the best understanding of how the game development business works, but I do realize publishers pressure developers to crunch or push out half-baked content. Even so, the developers still play a part in the decision. I highly doubt any sane publisher would actively prevent a developer from fixing a game and hurting their own profit. This entire point of yours regarding developers rarely being the problem seems to be an attempt to derail the discussion and call me out personally for a potential lack of understanding. I made my statement because I’ve seen too many developers push out “fluff content” one after the other and don’t seem to fix bugs that players have reported on for years. I understand why this happens, but I don’t support it.
Read my statement above. I misread what you wrote, my bad.
I’m guessing you are stating that my * other * claim is that people are dissatisfied with the game, since you didn’t quote me. Read actual reviews that state what they do and do not like from both sides. There are a lot of people that experience issues with this game and a lot of the positive reviewers state they’ve experienced the same. If we go any deeper into this rabbit hole about why some reviews are negative or positive even when stating the same thing, my head’s going to explode. The point is, many people have problems that are real and can hamper the experience.
I may be wrong in your mind, but I don’t really want to spend any more time arguing with you. I’m not dying on this hill.
Have a nice day
