Thank you for defending Gamefreak employees against the twitter woman with the bayleef nails o7Staff gets harassed on social media.
A deluge of arm chair developers who don’t understand how to do their job telling you them they’re either lying, lazy, or manipulative.
News reports delivered in bad faith based on all of this by journalists who can and should be held to a higher standard.
Misinformation shoved out at every opportunity about past titles and current ones.
Won’t someone think of the fans, tho???
I don’t care what got cut, or what decisions got made. Nothing justifies the behavior that we’ve seen since this announcement came about. These threads have been inundated with lazy dev rhetoric and bad faith arguments (and unfortunately, I must admit, I made some of them and let my biases affect me). Going “But won’t someone think of the corporation?!” like it’s baby’s first effort at consumer advocacy won’t change what’s already done, and just like with LGPE, whether or not the game is successful isn’t owed to anyone, and people who do celebrate its success - if it happens - are just as justified as you are for being mad about it.
I’ve talked about getting perspective before, but there’s a basic level of decency that hasn’t been part of this. You’re just gonna have to do what I took too long to learn to do - Deal With It.
