Strategy Informer - Early Access on Steam- Paying the Price for Unfinished Games.
Moreover, some people doubt the value of giving gaming communities such authoritative power over the direction of design processes; although this isn't a viewpoint I have much sympathy with myself it's still worth a mention. It may sound a little peculiar to argue that gamers don't know what's best for them, but just look at the MMORPG sector and how downright uninspired it's been ever since the success of WOW. People are resistant to change and that can be a bad thing. In paid alpha testing the devs have to be the ones to make design calls, but we have to wonder how well some of these small studios would stay true to their creative vision under the pressure of over a million screaming fans. Whether they should or not is an entirely different question.
