It seems to me any more that games get announced far to early. While I understand the logic behind building hype for investors to see.
It seems (to me) a lot of times games are announced 2-3 years (sometimes more) before they are even in beta. (Pre Alpha picture nonsense and the like)
So people get all whipped up into a frenzy about how epic this game is going to be, talking about this feature or that, and just getting over excited for something that is years away.
They over grandeurize (is that a word?) the game making it be 1000x more awesome than the game will be able to be, get pissed off that it is not what they expected for the last 3 years since announcement, and walk away jaded.
Or the game turns out to be vaporware. Leaving people to have wasted their time waiting, thinking, and talking about it.
Personally I don't think a game should be made public any earlier then 6 months before a closed beta. But that's just me.
What do you guys think?
