    You people have VERY low expectations for gaming :(

    I want a heck of a lot more depth than all those games put together.

    I am thinking more in lines of Elyria right now,nothing else remotely looks worth my time to even look at it.

    As for right NOW,i am already playing games i like right NOW,EQ2 and FFXI and Hearthstone although HS frustrates the heck out of me,geesh Blizzard frustrates the heck out of me.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    Well, after seeing what's been released for the past few years, hype with no delivery, and promises of good games if you fund their company, my expectations would drop.

    No one understood the cancellation of CoH since it was still earning them a profit. Apparently, making money isn't what NCSoft likes in their venture portfolio.

    There's a lot more to it than "making money",  - dev, operation and support costs, future monetization prospects, expansion costs etc.... and a ton of behind the scenes factors that go beyond "well it's profitable"

    There's always a very good reason why businesses shut down marginally profitable projects - and the reason is not "because they are an evil corp who hate gamers".

    It's not about earning profit. It's about "how much profit".

    If the company is a publicly traded company they are required to make money for their investors. If they are spending X dollars to make Y profit and they find a way to take that same "X dollars" to make double Y profit then they are going to do that.

    If one of your investments was making a small profit but you and other investors found out that company could be making you more money with your same investment wouldn't you want them to do that?

    You invest to make money.

    Before even clicking the title, I just knew what this thread was going to be about.

    The longevity of loyalty of [that game's] fans leaves one wondering why [company] canceled it in the first place.

    Sometimes I wish a game was back. . then I realize I quit playing it before it was shut down because I wasn't having fun.   If I wasn't playing it when it shut down then there was a reason.  The only one that doesn't fit this for me was Vanguard and strangely enough SWG. . which I left after CU and came back about a year before it closed and actually had a great time. . . once I let it gooo.

    Wa min God! Se æx on min heafod is!

    The only reason I can't go back to EQ1 is because of the graphics and animation. I've become spoiled over the years. If they were to re-create it in the graphical fashion of a new game I would play it for another 6 years.

    Well it could have been about SWG. I think these people like pining after what they can't have more than they actually liked playing the game.
