People are ****** they bought a product and didn't like it.
They're ****** that they bought it, didn't like it, noticed that it wasn't just them - everyone was upset, and then after all that, they found out that the designers didn't seem to care.
Compare this to your sushi analogy... with an extract from my own life. Note that this story is 100% true. It's just a weird coincidence that you mentioned sushi, and that I have a story that ties in. Oh, ye internet, how ye weaves ye jolly tales...
I've tried sushi twice in my life. Both times, I came down with food poisoning. I don't think I'm allergic though, because I can eat cooked fish in huge quantities. And often do.
The first time (open beta)
, I shrugged it off. Oh well, things happen. Might be a mistake, or some dodgy sushi (game will be fixed)
The second time, I was in a restaurant (I bought the game)
. I didn't really like the taste (I wasn't a fan of the beta)
, but it was free (all my friends were getting it)
So I tried it.
Again... I got food poisoning. (Again... it's still sh*te)
Will I eat sushi again? No. It's obviously not good for me. I learned from my mistake.
I think a lot of people will be sticking to cooked fish from now on.
