I know everyone hates Postal 2 here, but he's got a point when he says that. His company could come out with the best game, and it would always be followed up by "made by Running With Scissors, makers of Postal 2". Don't think I'm overreacting -- the same thing happened (happens) with Daikatana, Trespasser, Deus Ex 2, The Sims, etc.
I dunno when gamers got so jaded, but it's almost impossible for them to just enjoy stuff anymore. It's almost like if they don't like a particular game, it's because the developers personally hate them, so the gamer is going to slam them at every opportunity, even after the fact. Compare this with the apparently inability to purchase more than one game per year (Doom3 vs. Half Life 2, etc), the rampant elitism about anything mainstream, the complaining about system requirements and the flat out immaturity, and it's a wonder that developers even make games these days.
I guess it's a good that they generally do it because they enjoy making games, period, but I worry about what happens when that begins to wear thin, and they realize they're standing in a room full of whiny immature players, who can't be appeased no matter what.
