As for my analogy, I'm not really sure what you find wacky about it. Makes perfect sense, really. Expectations are determined by labels. That's why labels are important. We rely on labels to make life easier. If I recognize a label, I expect it to be accurate. If I buy a Coke, it should taste like a Coke, not a Pepsi or Dr. Pepper. Likewise, if I buy a Splinter Cell game, it should play like a stealth game, as established by all the other games that carry that label.

You may not care about labels and that's fine but you should at least understand why others consider them important.

The common sense difference there is Coke is always the same fucking thing, every time you have it. Games inherently change over time and with each release, even if they are built to be extremely similar to previous games in that series.

What you call logical reliance on a label and not obsessing over game coverage I call being an uneducated consumer. Why the fuck would anyone drop $60 on any media product without knowing more than the title of it? Insanity.
