So over the last couple of days I have heard a lot of people in the industry come out and say really disrespectful shit about the so call "Core-Gamers". The leading insults seems to be "oh they can like something all they want but at the end of the day they don't matter". I don't personally think this is true but lets not get stuck on that. Why the hell are try treating their own leading/first adopters/die-hard fans as this negligible sections of the audience? Are people in the industry so full of themselves as to say "fuck you if your not happy go somewhere else"?
I work in the industry as well but this type of dialogue towards our own customers is utterly disappointing, what the hell is going on in this industry. Is it hubris? Being defensive? I can not fathom. What do you think Bombers?
