I know I get riled up when people post about the game milked and abandoned and have to take a deep breath before posting (and still regret some posts).
This is what I don't understand. Why would you get all riled up about a game unless you were one of the developers or programmers who built it? I see a lot of this in the forums, and it eludes me as to why mere players of a game would so staunchly defend it.
I mean, I drive a Dodge, and some friends make some low-brow insults about it and make fun of me driving it. Do I go off like a raving lunatic in defense of Mopar's good name like I have a personal stake? No, I just laugh along and let it run it's course.
I suspect there is more to this phenomena than meets the eye, but on the surface, it seem ludacris.
