We all know Star Citizen gets a lot of hate, and even recently I decided to refund my donation. However, what exactly causes Star Citizen to have so much hate and suspicion toward it? Look at Pantheon, it barely gets any hate at all and yet its very much looked forward to MMO.
Is it the developers that cause it? Is it because Chris Roberts is seemingly liked a used cars salesman and offering the game to end all games (if so, that is definitely a reason to have suspicion). But Chris Roberts has made amazing games before, so it isn't like he never made a game and does have experience.
For me, I think the biggest thing is them focusing on making money. Every time I read about it, its about a new ship for sale. When it should be focused on making the game, not focused on making money and making the game second. Especially since they already got so much money from backers to begin with. That is a difference with say Pantheon, which is focused on making the game and not worrying so much about money. Maybe part of that is mismanaging money by Chris Roberts (who HAS been known to not manage very well).
What are your guys thoughts? What causes you to have suspicion or doubts against Star Citizen? or are you on the other side, and you feel that the game has no issues at all, and there is nothing to worry about at all?
