Actually you've been making poor decision for years. And yes it could even be considered stupid to ignore a current game like rage which had potential for modders to fix all the screwed up designs. For a 10 year old rehash game of doom3 which breaks most(all?) mods.
I know this will be a little hard for you to grasp, but you ever considered asking the FANS WHAT THE F, they want?
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.
