As much as it may seem like a lost cause I think it's worth putting in the effort. There's only so long the critics of the game can bash the game before it proves them wrong, as it has done many times already.
Haha another ridiculous claim.
While it is true that the extreme doomsayers (of which I have never been a part FWIW) who predicted CIG would fold any minute now were proven wrong, everyone else (the regular skeptics) has not just been proven right but no one ever expected in their worst nightmares that CIG would suck as hard as they do.
Proven right? The game has been delayed. We get that. But the development is progressing well and what's been demonstrated to date has exceeded what was originally promised by a significant margin. I don't mind delays if the end result is an excellent game and everything so far suggests that to be the case.
Criticising a pre-alpha game for not matching up to a AAA release is pointless. Compare it to building a house - of course a house under construction is going to let in water if it doesn't have a roof; however, if the rest of the construction is of a high quality then when you put on the roof you'll have a high quality house.
If you want to bash a game under development for being delayed go ahead. All I care about is the final product and the work that CIG has done so far is exceptional. If the final product isn't any good then that will be a separate discussion.
