See, this is what drives me nuts about gamers today...you guys have no clue what's in the game at this point, only that it has a story underpinning and covers all three trilogies...and has 'heroes', like the first. The game could literally have everything you're all complaining about wanting but you don't know. Yet we'll complain anyway. I'm guilty of it too but I think that for this industry to return to what it was back in it's heyday, we need some optimism and enthusiasm. I'm not saying to go out and pre-order but maybe be a little excited about things. I constantly (constantly) hear people wanting another Tie Fighter, including myself, and this could be a big step to that. It looks like it's going to have more focus on space combat.
I have the smallest bit of hope that EA heard all the complaints about the first and is going to change it. And for once, I'm going to go in excited to see what they'll give us this time instead of grumbling about it. Will I be disappointed? Probably. But fuck, I'm tired of being down and negative about this shit all the time. The mood is always 80% 'It's gonna fail - hard!' and 20% 'Well it might rock'. We need to change that.
Nah, there are plenty of cheerleading avenues for games already, they have full on PR departments and whole community websites surrounding them. There is no need to change anything, people have every right to be cynical about the gaming industry if that's what they want to do. This sub-franchise in particular was a big disappointment to many people so they have historical precedent for their concern. Feel free to praise it up to the stars, you're entitled to your opinion like everyone else but no one else needs to change anything.
Bitch on gamers, keep the industry honest IMO
