I know that feeling. I had one of those "PC elitists" who insulted my family (something you wouldn't do in my face) and my intelligence because I liked something with Bethesda's name on it.
Dude, whoa. Whoa. An internet stranger said something like "LOL ur dumb and ur momma so fat" back in 2008
and not only you still remember it, but use terms like "insulted my family" to describe it? I think you'd benefit from taking things less seriously, man.
Back to topic - sometimes I envy that doggedly persistent optimism of people who desperately cling to details like "the demo doesn't reflect all the choices that'll be in the game" against all evidence. At least until the game is pushed out and their hopes are all crushed because marketing is a lie and grumpy pessimist me is all, "Well, whaddayathink, this game isn't as terrible as I expected it to be. Good."
If I had this attitude, I would've never played Deus Ex. When I first heard of it I thought "Yet another gory FPS. Don't we have enough of them already?"
Beside, expecting something good is more productive than being grumpy all the time.
P.S. Before I forgot, that insulting post was VERY long and detailed (think people who wants to pass off smarter than they are).
