It's more like you missed the point, or perhaps you're just trying to confuse the point because you don't like it. The games, in my opinion, were never anything special, which means that any follow-up was never going to be special. Easy concept for most people to understand. "But ... but what about Battlemaniacs," means nothing when it was basically the same damn game. Your point isn't my point, which means you're the one that had it fly over your head.
You had no point, you had no notion why many people are upset. You cant empathise. That was my point.
Besides, three games followed after the original one. Obviously the reason being that BT was special to many people and still is.
