Op Ed - An Open Letter to EA on SimCity: You Could Have Prevented This.
When concerns are raised over "online features," listen to them. When people warn you months in advance that there will be server issues, listen to them. When gamers worry that they won't be able to play SimCity years from now (when every SimCity game from the Super Nintendo version to SimCity 4 remains playable and enjoyable), listen to them. Turn away from your paranoia regarding piracy and realize that there are tons of customers who want to give you money in exchange for being able to play a game. Appreciate the value of customer loyalty and developing a community instead of squeezing every last drop out of people and discarding them.

Geez, gamers are really a disgrace sometimes.
There are no "gamers". There are only people. Some smart, some dumb, some eager to learn from their experience, some just staying clueless. And there are people who like nothing more than to complain about what some people have to say about other people. Like you. Having fun?

Hahaha, you mean like you and Cutter rated the comments of others just before?
I'm sorry dude, but you aren't really in the position to raise the moral finger. It was you two who had "fun" with such nonsense (first). Quite a shocker that you don't like to receive the same treatment that you dished out.

He didn't really make a moral argument or counter comparison. He could also enjoy complaining about what other people say about other people. META META META

Point still stands, you can't really generalize "gamers", especially today's gamers.

A generalization about gamers would be about as appropriate as their previous remark, that those other commenters would be "sheeple" and that they'd "get what they deserve".

Besides, I even said "sometimes", not "always", did I?
So it seems even more pointless to try to blame me that I'd generalize.
Humans are a disgrace sometimes? What could be wrong about that statement? They simply are. That doesn't include that everyone is, all the time.
