I seriously doubt I'll play it when it arrives...they had their chance and blew it.
Why? Is that a "there's no way it will be good enough to waste my time on it" statement or a "I've followed the development of this too closely to play it unless it's the best game ever made" kind of statement?
Often I see people turned off of games they followed closely, because they followed closely. Personally, the best course seems to be just not following development closely.
Your tastes change, and so does your situation. 5 years ago, I loved playing RTS games and long, deep RPGs. Now I barely play either. I prefer shorter, simpler stuff. I know the Witcher 3 is perhaps the best RPG ever made, and right up my alley, but I haven't picked it up because I don't see myself with either the time or motivation to play it.
I get that, which is why I gave nin the benefit of the doubt, but I think many swear they'll never play it due to how annoying the development process has been.
Similar to how some refuse to buy games because of broken promises from the devs. At some point, that's on you, too. In many cases millions of people love these games because they don't pay close attention too soon. If someone is the type to repeatedly swear they won't buy a game because of stuff behind the scenes, maybe best to stop paying attention to the behind the scenes.
I have little interest in SC - I just don't like these types of games. But if it comes out and is great, I may check it out. I haven't really bothered reading these articles so the nonsense is meaningless to me.
