Well said. It good for many of us to keep repeating ourselves if needed to make sure SquEnix know how they went wrong and to not make the same mistakes.
Agreed, it's one of the reasons I'm so quick to speak out about games I dislike, and also why I'm so quick to defend and extoll the virtues of games I enjoy but feel get a bad rep or are overlooked (like DmC). The think we have to remember is that as consumers we have a small voice, easily ignored, so we have to speak out in force. Sure people say "vote with your wallet" but that doesn't work. Ubisoft interpreted Zombie U's failure as a lack of interest in the Wii U, not that the game was ultimately disappointing, (I've not actually played it). If we want games to our tastes, we need to make ourselves heard and that means repeatedly calling out games when they're bad, and praising games when they're good... but with care not to become, haters or fanboys. Unnecessary backlash and pointless overhype helps no-one.
