no shame if you want to put it off indefinitely and you shouldn't have to force yourself to play it if it brings up bad memories, but hopefully you can come back around to it eventually and play it in rememberance of him. take care and keep strong regardless. :)
Btw OP it sounds like you're pretty much calling it shady for the game to not have the community it should. Do you think they didn't do a good enough job promoting the game and thus the onus is on them or something? I think you can basically chalk this up to the diminishing returns of the series finally catching up to it. And like it's been said there'd be a real stink if they didn't make the dlc available, even with a dwindling community able to play it. Just sounds like everyone's too quick nowadays to make some anti-consummerist conspiracy mountains out ot molehills.
