>>323317925 Which is why people hate that phrase. Just look at what happened to Squenix. If you have a loyal fanbase and a rocksolid franchise it does no one a favor if you try to completly change that formula for a bit more money. All it does is turning a game into a lifeless piece of shit with no "soul". That may sound autistic, but it literally kills the creativity and the endproducts feel like shitty hollywood movies. The themes may be different but they all feel the same in the end.
>>323321015 >Game X is made for a special audience and is perfect for said audience >Its changed to pander to a different audience and for that the gameplay is watered down and the game ends up generic and bland
>>323321341 Okay? Game X still exists, and if it's perfect the way it is, then what's to stop them from going back to it?
You sound like the kind of person who would say that FF7 is perfectly playable and fine to this day, yet would still bitch about the remake's change to combat. Nobody's taking away what's already there. Stop being a bitch.
>>323317580 Intentionally trying to reach a wider audience is retarded because it drives away existing fans while giving nothing new to people who weren't fans before. For example, why should someone who isn't a Star Wars fan care about the new Battlefront when it does almost nothing different that any other generic FPS does?
Video games in general work best when the publishers realize it's a relatively niche market and create games with that in mind instead of pretending they can create the next juggernaut mainstream idea.
