I think you need to realize that standards are simply dropping rapidly in our society. Not long ago i wanted to communicate with some peoples while having lunch. They all grabbed their smartphones instead. Game developers would *not* have gotten away with such crappy releases back then. Why were there big manuals? Cause there were no 1 gazillion patches to make the darn game playable, they actually cared about realeasing a quality product. Peoples actually had a vision, including devs, to make something special. Just like we once cared more about each other, and not about a silly (and stupidly small) telephone screen.
