Well I hope you think the casual mode is one of the things they did right, because that's definitely here to stay in some form. Personally I'm pretty happy it exists because I appreciate the fandom beyond just the game and I love how much the fandom expanded thanks to it. Same goes for the "dating sim" elements. It's all coming back, and that's for the best as it keeps a huge part of the fandom coming back. I still play on classic because to me that's the only proper way to play, but I welcome the growth the fandom has seen from people who play differently. I hope they make better DLC, but I'm not getting my hopes up for that one.
