Seeing that many people are cancelling the game because they didn't like the way the story will move forward, I wonder if some people may consider the leak a good thing. After all, isn't it better to get the bad news early and save yourself money and time than paying and playing a game you won't like in the end?
It’s an interesting situation no doubt. It certainly doesn’t affect every game the same way. If some games narratives get spoiled it wouldn’t bother me a bit. But some games put the narrative above the gameplay so it kind of defeats the purpose of playing the game if you know you aren’t a fan of the story. Same with movies. If I know I won’t be into the plot, why would I bother watching? Games are different because you actually play them, but not all are as enjoyable to play as others. I thought LoU was kind of a pain to play through. Anyone canceling their preorders or vowing to not buy the game apparently feel the gameplay won’t save the narrative.
