Oh, you mean because I said:
This is now a company that has made a game that isn't good, and they can NEVER change that.
Ah, I see.
What I said was accurate, and not hipocritical.
I wasn't impling that I had actually played the game.
I was actually referring to the reputation of the games developers in that sentence, and its change due to commonly held belief.
You see, this critical concensus will be used as a measuring stone in future articles outlining developers who have never made a "bad" game.
Like the one posted the other day.
However, because of this turn of events, it is likely that this developer will never appear in such a list again.
Again, my opinion of the game is moot. The general opinion, and public perception is the tipping point here, and that is what I am attempting to convey.
The developer now has a critical flop on their permanent record.
It doesn't matter what I think of the game, and I have no opinion of its quality.
Again, how has the game "flopped" already? There are no sales figures for it yet, OBVIOUSLY, because it isn't out yet. Come back in 6 months and tell me if it flopped. This way, if it actually does flop, I'll happily apologize to you, accept defeat, and eat crow. Until then, there is currently no "flop".
