They won't even be happy then! I think the people who complain will complain regardless of what goes down, simply because they don't know how to exist in any other fashion.


Far from it.

I think most people would be happy with male Miqote and a couple of new races. A lot of people would be happier with less-- one new race or male Miqote.

But I guess that depends what you mean by "happy." Content with what they have, or completely satisfied? It's impossible to completely satisfy everyone especially with an implementation like playable races. But that doesn't mean people who want more are complaining, either.

If we're defining happiness as the point at which people stop complaining, it's much easier to achieve than you seem to think.

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

That's why people are never happy. "Just give me this and that, and I'll be happy."

People are never content with what they have, they always want more. "If I earned a bit more money I'd be happy." "If I had a bit better car I'd be happy." That's how humans behave.

Be happy about what the game Has, not what it has not.

I don't get what all the hype is about in regards to the music on that site. It just sounds like a collage of previous Final Fantasy's battle music with some minor tune differences thrown in, which is not that impressive. They can (And I hope they will) do much better.

Be happy about what the game Has, not what it has not.


What a flawed attempt at sagacity.

The game is not life, and life is not the game. For me, what they do with this game has little bearing on my happiness, and the same is true for the people who critique any game, book, movie, etc. All consumed media are subject to criticism-- the list of cons are not the demands of insatiable consumers who will never find happiness. They are simply suggestions for improving the experience of the individual.

So no, it's more like, "Just do this and that, and the game will better."

I won't be unhappy if the game "has not," but I won't play it if it has too little.

People bring up subjects they don't like all the time, instead of thinking the good things the game has to offer.

New feature is announced: "Yeah cool I guess, but I'm still disappointed there's no new races."

New feature #2 is announced: "I heard this game has no jumping? How disappointing."

New gameplay video is released: "The lightning sucks, the textures have too few polygons, the framerate is low... I don't want to be cynical, but it's quite disappointing."

I don't think it's always about suggestions. First thing (or second) that happens when SE reveals something is that people start nitpicking it. What's wrong with it. How it could be better. Some people are there to give suggestions- but I don't think everyone is. They are disappointed that there is no X or Y, not happy that there is Z.

Your car isn't your life either, but that's what people think bring them happiness.

It's cool that You're not like that. Wasn't saying you were.

I figure most people who watched/read a new feature and thought "oh cool!" aren't gonna take the time to come here and post anyways

But those that go "man I am so disappointed I hope other people are disappointed like I am" have more drive to do so.

I've been happy with all the new results I've seen
