You know what?
This is good.
This is Great!
We need more angry gamers. I don't mean that hardcore gamers should spend "even more time" whining and complaining, but getting casuals to care is going to take a landslide event. We need this thing to hit critical mass and actually see tens of millions of gamers avoiding products that don't conform to Fair Play practices. Battlefront II is a good start but we're not there yet.
As successful as CD Project RED was with TW3, they should sell Ten Times more copies of Cyberpunk (if it's good, etc...).
Good developers who respect the gamer need to become the pillars of the industry, and the mainstream aren't aware enough yet to make that happen.
I know in the long term it's just a cycle: Small company does good work. Small company becomes big company. Big company gets bought out or sells out. Big company becomes evil.
But at least right now it's time for a changing of the guard. Hopefully Activision and EA will go the way of THQ in the not too distant future.
