Hate to beat a dead thread buuuut. Regardless of why people may hate Cliff B. the product stands and falls somewhat on it's own merits.
Yes, there are people who hate him for what he is or what he is perceived as (kinda explains any 'celebrity' perception). Is it deserving? Yes or no considering the person's perspective on the individual.
The fact remains that his game is not selling. Regardless of his personal "wealth" as a game designer, he has just released a game that in not popular.
Whether the failing is on him or his team is an unknown until the inevitable 'Why Did Lawbreakers Fail?' article.
I feel for the team at Boss Key because releasing a bomb can't be pleasant and they probably all have families to support. Cliffy IS partially to blame whether people want to admit it or not. Some of his attitude towards PC gamers has been harsh and didn't sit well with certain gamers (myself included). I know that I will NEVER buy a game from his company simply because of who he is. Is this fair, I don't know, but it IS human.
