Considering people are demanding donations back, making death threats and making BBB complaints over it, hes a bit justified. Hes just saying those above three make all fans of something look bad.370999 said:So once again Bob doesn't understand the difference between games and movies.

In the interest of fairness, while the vast majority of what you have to say here is completely accurate, I feel I must mention that the FTC suit is not fans bitching about a shitty ending. It's fans bitching about false advertising. Whether or not that claim holds any water remains to be seen, I'm sure the legal system will be able to work it out, but from everything I've seen it certainly appears to be a valid complaint.MovieBob said:Mutants and Masses
MovieBob goes into detail about the difference between artists and fans.
Uh if the promotions for the book DID say you were going to get different endings, then yes, it IS false advertising.Baby Tea said:Fans are equal creators in the same way that readers of 'choose your own adventure' books are equal authors.Frank_Sinatra_ said:Remember: BioWare has stated that their fans are equal creators in the story along with their actual writing staff.
Read: They aren't.
"But they SAID we are!"
Yeah! And the cover of my 'Choose your own Adventure' book says I pick where the character goes!
But even IF every choice I make in the book ends up at the same, unsatisfying conclusion on the final page, the bottom line is: That's how it was written. I might not like it, and I might even feel cheated, but that's the creator's choice. I can not buy from them again, I can critique it like crazy, I can even ***** about it on the internet, but to DEMAND that a creator, that an artist CHANGE THEIR WORK because I am unsatisfied is the height of self-entitled bullshit.
No, it's not false advertising.
No, they don't owe you a thing.
Geez, I'd be happy with another bullshit 'boycott' rather than this garbage.
People need to grow up. Seriously.

Hes reffering to the ME3 fans, they're making FTC and BBB complaints over it.DVS BSTrD said:Why would you file a complaint with the FTC Bob? You weren't mislead in any way, you knew you were getting a Micheal Bay film to begin with. The whole reason we got upset is because we DIDN'T GET A NICE THING. Or is fan outrage at the perceived mishandling of a property a right only reserved for eccentric English Detectives and Light Based Superheros?
