"Sorry you fans didn't get what you thought you deserved from the game, I guess? I mean, it's yall's fault for having expectations, but we're sorry you had those expectations."
And of course, they're the ones who created those expectations to begin with.  If they had given anything approaching a realistic demonstration of the game, then they wouldn't have a refundstorm and PR nightmare on their hands.

False advertising kills even huge game companies and tarnishes the industry as a whole, and it's the number one reason people are understandably skiddish about preordering.

False advertising aside, they still felt the need to ruin the original version of the game, deleting directories without warning, and deciding that anything people make in it is now their property. That's still enough for a riot.

Born under one law, to another bound;
Vainly begot, and yet forbidden vanity,
Created sick, commanded to be sound."

70+ and still gaming!  As I'm dying they will have to pry the mouse out of my hands!

Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

See how they make cut scenes? I don't know how many people know this.  I just blundered onto it.  I'm wondering if they employ the same technology to make the controllable action figures.  I noticed at the end of a cut scene the actors will stop and freeze in the "Jesus on the cross" position.  I'm wondering if that's some kind of default position for figures when the game transitions from cut scene to playable.

My 70+ mother plays games, sure their tablet and phone games but between her reading books and seeing her friends she needs some form of entertainment, words with friends, Bejeweled, plants Vs zombies, online chess, several others.
Maybe just accept playing games is as much part of modern culture as watching a movie or TV show or going to see a sports game?

So once in a while I do a nuzlocke on an old pokémon game.

Playing heartgold right now.
My team got infected with pkrs.
Never thought I'd see the day.  I've caught like 6 shinies in my life. Came across a few more that I failed to catch.
But never actually met this before.
Yay!

Boss Lady: Someday I'm going to find you dead in front of that game. Then I can throw it away and use your desk for something productive.

Me: Save my game first, okay?

I'm subbed to several gaming youtubers, Markiplier, Caddicarus, jacksepticeye, Jontron, several others, and while I like most of their content, sometime thats irked me lately, are popular youtubers in this genre, who have been advertising the bloody contemptible mobile game raid shadow legends.

I can understand why popular youtubers do this, youtube's been a bitch to content creators in the last several years, and people still want to make content and get paid for it, since they want it to be their job, something youtube use to pay them before before it got high strung on who it would pay. So in that void sponsors came in and offered popular youtubers money to advertise raid shadow legends.

I just find it really offputting that people would advertise this shit, pretend its some great gaming experience, when in reality is a shallow cash grab promoting online gambling to children. I understand people need to make money, but this feels no different to if you worked for a large corporation that sells products mass produced from china and its toxic dumping factories.
