Dev produces assets he's supposed to produce -> dev gets paidGame studio makes game fans want -> fans buy game -> game studio makes money
Game studio makes game not even fans want -> fans don't buy game -> game studio doesn't make money
Dev produces something he thinks the fans might like and goes rogue on what he deems the quest to make the perfect game -> dev gets fired and replaced by someone who can do what he's told
Really not fair to blame the "working bees" as Grobut put it for the sorry state of the franchise.
Yes, losing a job is an inherent risk of the job market rolleyes but does that really doesn't mean we have any right to be joyful when someone's livelihood is at stake, just because he was involved in producing something we didn't like because someone else entirely made bad decisions?
Personally, I think that's a little disgusting.
