I've seen a LOT of extremely negative, hateful, angry, cynical, resentful, doomsaying posts about EQNext already and it literally has no solid information yet at all. Nothing. Seriously?? For all you know this could be one of the most enjoyable games you've ever played. And sure, maybe it wouldn't be, but why already go to that point of discounting and eliminating it as an option to you without knowing ANYTHING about it? I can understand being ambivalent or on-the-fence waiting for actual info before being excited, but already hating on the game that no one knows anything about is just as ridiculous as people 100% positive this will be their savior MMO. Actually, it's worse, because the only feedback that has come out so far about the game has been EXTREMELY positive. And while people can argue the legitimacy of getting best of show from 2 big mmo websites at E3, which I agree with, the bottom line is still that the feedback was extremely positive, NOT negative. But still, people swinging completely in the opposite direction with the hating, doomsaying, wanting it to fail, etc etc.
What is wrong with you people? Is it just a joy at watching other things fail - in other words being pretty miserable, angry and resentful inside? Have you been burned too many times getting excited for a new game only to be disappointed so now you don't even allow yourself to feel anything but skepticism at any new game release? Or is it maybe contempt or resentment at SOE or Smedley for things done in the past? Maybe the company has done some things you don't agree with or that affected you personally in a negative way and you want to see the company suffer? 80% or more of the reasons why I see people saying this game will be horrible or will fail is because of some thing that happened in the past with another game of SOE. This isn't the past people and it isn't one of those other games!! Have you never made a mistake or done something that others don't agree with, then in the future do a better job and improve? Are we, and SOE, locked into doing the exact same things over and over again? Any mistake we make, doomed to repeat it? Of course not!! I HATED few things SOE has done but so what, why can't I give them a chance with this? I want people to give me a chance when I screw something up to do better next time. Why even go to that area of hate already? THERE IS NO INFO YET - GIVE THE GAME A CHANCE TO SUCK BEFORE DECIDING IT SUCKS AND GIVE SOE A CHANCE TO SCREW IT UP BEFORE DECIDING IT'S ALREADY SCREWED UP!! Jeez
And hell no I don't think people need to be a fanboi or even be excited for the game yet. But hating it and wanting it to fail already really does nothing but hurt you. People excited will remain excited, people waiting for more info will continue to wait for more info before deciding, but you will have already eliminated a game that could be fun as hell for you based solely on your own resentments, anger, or whatever it is that results in the despising of something that literally is completely amorphous as of this point in time.
