People are enraged because they were lied to, and are getting a low quality product from a massive series from a massive corporation.

It's nothing new, people act like that every time a big game fails to meet standarts or is badly perceived.

People trashed games like Sonic '06 and Boom, people trashed Fallout 76, people trashed Anthem, and so on.

The absurdity is that we have people that defended it this time, because it's Pokemon.

They did the same with Bethesda with them continuosly showing they didn't care, until we got Fallout 76.

That's what is happening with GameFreak now, some people have been pointing out their incompetence and lack of interest to invest to make better games but the majority kept defending, until we got Sword and Shield.

The difference was that GF still had the 3DS excuse, where low quality was still quite passable.

Now a lot of people are enraged with them because of the flaws of their products, the lack of care about the fanbase and lying to them, and want to make it clear it not get yet another pass, so the company feel the need to change.

That's what's happening here, fans are finally realising they don't need to accept anything and are mad with how they are being treated.

The fact you call it millennial entitlement is very telling on how out of touch with the situation you are and how quick you jump to generalization to show your ignorance (as in lack of understanding) and try to use it as an artifact to make it looks bad, which is honestly quite sad.

No mate people defend the game because despite the issues it's still a good game people trashed Sonic 06, F76 and so on because they were broken bad games.

My guy, no one is claiming that Pokemon is bad game. You have to disconnect the idea that being failing to meet expectations = bad game. That biggest claim is that Sword and Shield is a rushed, technically underwhelming, outdated product on a very obvious level. The state that Sword and Shield has released in would have been considered to be unexceptable anywhere else. Crystal clear that at very best this game needed more time. At the worst, a new developer. 

You gotta dimwit to think that this is entitlement:

- You mean to tell me that it is entitlement to be unhappy with the National PokeDex cut and a chunk of the move pool "to better focus on animation and quality of models" then get some some of the worst animation, or in the case of the Wingulls at the 1 minute mark, none at all (lol) in the entirety of the 3D Pokemon entries.

- You mean to tell me its entitlement to look at other JRPG's and say those games are nowhere near as big as Pokemon but they have non of these issues and double the care so what it is Pokemon's deal?

- You mean to tell me its entitlement that there is an expectation that Pokemon's first mainline console release drips of the same quality expected as the rest of a Nintendo's major franchises?

- You mean to tell me its entitlement to expect Pokemon's first mainline console entry to be 2 big steps forward and not 3 big steps back?

No one has asked for anything that would be expected of all sequels; to be better.

Nobody is defending it.  People, even those who are enjoying it, acknowledge it has flaws.  I believe the bigger point people are making is we are all aware of the issues.  Many, including myself, are simply tired of hearing about it.  We know.  You all have told us at least 200 times at this point.  We know.  Can those who like the game, despite the flaws, be left alone to discuss the game now?  Please.  

If you want a place where people who like the game can discuss how much they like it maybe a thread on the metacritic score isn't that place.

Perhaps.  But pretty much every Pokemon thread has turned into the same crap over and over.  There is a reason everybody is leaving VG and going to other places.

Oh? where can you go on the internet without any dissenting opinions? I honestly tried to think of it and suggest that when I made the comment but I couldn't think of anywhere where people who like a game are just left to discuss how much they like it. At least nothing with any level of popularity.

And GameFreak can add this to its list of "accomplishments"

That is hyperbole.

Who is everybody and where are they going?(resetera or ign comments?)

Reddit (and other sites) offer private group chats.  It isn't that hard to have a place where people talk games and leave the bickering at the door.  The constant bickering, which is exactly what is going on in this thread, turns many people off.  Either people can recognize this fact and make changes, or they can continue to drive folks away.  I'm at the point where I don't much care in either direction.  I am currently a member of two aforementioned private chat groups.  I suspect my time here will dwindle quickly.  I'm tired of people repeating their hate over and over.  As if others HAVE to agree and can't possibly just have a differing opinion.

Point out where I even said entitlement go on you're in your own world ranting on that one, fact is you can't even begin to compare those games he mentioned because the context of why they were bashed is because they were broken messes and bad so getting upset at people not doing the same to Sw/Sh is a reach unless you're trying to equate it to being just as bad, fans aren't bashing Sw/Sh like those games because it's still a good game regardless plain and simple.



I wonder how many review outlets are going to review this in the end. Right now it has 20 reviews, and the Let's Go games have around 80 each...



You know it deserves the GOTY.

The entitlement part was not specifically aimed at you. Sorry. Didnt want to double post but I have been seeing that word thrown around without any warrant or merit
