I still don't think it's entitlement because we don't have direct control over the game development (although I see you put it in quotations, I don't think entitlement is even on the right spectrum of how some of us who are dedicated to the forums feel). If I don't like SCB, I won't buy it, it's simple. But that doesn't stop me from voicing why we are frustrated, and hoping that the devs might get the picture. I don't think it's possible for a long time player to look purely objectively at a franchise that revolved so strongly around the immersion factor, SC was developed to emotionally involve those playing it, which is exactly why Conviction went purely emotion (story) but they messed up because SC is a balance between all the factors that make a good video game. While concentrating on the emotion they forgot the quintessential SC gameplay. I recently put in Conviction to try and play, and started out with the scene punching Grim which I had a haaaaaaaaard time doing because of all the connection built between Sam (player) and Grim (yes, having the original voice makes a huge difference. If she had a new voice I would probably gladly punch the beans out of her just because she had a new voice). Just as I had a hard time shooting Lambert in DA. Personally, I am not demanding anything from the devs because I am highly aware that if SCB is not what I am looking for, like I said I simply won't buy it. It would just really, really suck to completely lose faith in such an awesome franchise. I also, personally, do think we have the right to complain about where SC is going because the devs aren't making the game for themselves, they are making it for us. I like how you said our frustration with the franchise is a sign that we care about it, because that is 100% true.
