I feel like I'm missing something in light of all the negativity stirred up by the Shadow of the Eternals announcement. Where does this reputation of Denis Dyack being crazy come from? I listened to that supposedly infamous 1UP podcast where he ranted and raved about the future of the industry, but that struck me as someone passionate about his job musing about how uncertain the future was. And the whole Epic Games lawsuit didn't really strike me as a completely negative thing, though I suppose it was an audacious move and it clearly didn't pan out for his company.
As for the supposed tyrannical way he manages people, I've only really heard that in reference to X-Men Destiny (largely from this Kotaku article) and that looked to me like something no one wanted to be working on, it was clearly a project they had to take to try to stay afloat after Too Human didn't pan out. Basically, whatever stress Dyack was going through at that point seems justifiable. Now that he is working with a small team that clearly wants to be doing what they are doing, why be so mistrustful about his ability to keep things together?
I'm pretty much just asking, if you find Denis Dyack particularly mistrustful or sinister, WHY do you feel that way? What part of the picture am I missing?
