This is also a major reason why I hate just about everyone on the internet and understand why most developers tend to avoid their own messageboards like the plague. The way average feedback goes these days, you would think that every single game that that is ever released is a horrible failure and that everyone should just give up on trying to make games.
That's what I was trying to say. Every game released now is the blinding crack of an angels asshole or its the devil himself trying to steal your wallet. You can't just say 'i like this game but..' anymore, people will actually get mad if you they don't see you as being on their side. You also can't really get away with 'i dont really care for this game but i do like these things about it'. You will inevitably get hostile responses or shouted down by people who go to extremes and fight with eachother.
That is why half of the people here think that everyone hates their thing for no reason and the other half thinks they are just deluded fans jerking off. They're both wrong. It happens to everything now, everywhere on the internet and it's dumb.
