the folks who are actually angry about it need to get over it.
I checked out some of the rabid Twitter comments when the story broke. The sense of entitlement of those people is really quite extraordinary.
I accept that some people are disappointed. Some of them will have been waiting on this for years in expectation of it being a certain type of game, then they find out it's something else. I'm one of those people. But you either embrace the reality or forget about the game. I've chosen the former.
This is a big problem within videogames culture. 'Fans' think they have a right to a specific type of product. To a certain extent I can understand that where it involves a sequel, because a reasonable expectation has been formed that the newer game won't be a complete curveball (and they never are). But it's just bizarre when it concerns a new IP.
There's barely a month that passes by where I'm not disappointed by a game/movie/album/novel/comic that I'd been looking forward to, but that's on me and the hype that I've bought into. As a fan I'll take part in the 'dialogue' around the release, particularly if it's a genuinely poor creation, but I don't expect my comments or any discussions I take part in to actually change anything. But there's a certain section of 'our community' that feel that if they shout loud enough to might just get a game that's tailor-made for them.
