"Sometimes I don't know why/how game devs do it. Gamers as a whole are the most selfish, cruel, immature, thankless bunch of people around. Everything revolves around them, and heaven help you if you're a devoloper who accidentally pisses off this fickle bunch."
On a different note. I see tons of people shouting about moids this mods that for the new source engine because it is half life 2. They fail to realize why there were so many mods for the first half life was the fact that hundreds of mod makers were so used to it from being Quake 2 based. Thus the easy transition.
Just because it says Half Life on the box does not mean their engine will be easy mod accessable. Nor does it guarantee a fast SDK. We heard the same mutter about Far Cry and well that is dieing real fast as far as mod talk.
