You Are Petty And Juvenile For Complaining About SimCity

Couldn't play SimCity for the first week you owned it? Still can't play the game the way it was advertised? Tired of EA feeding you excuse after excuse? Too bad, you are just being petty and juvenile. stick out tongue

You can’t have it both ways. You can’t shake your fist indignantly and shout "but games are art!" then hold game designers to a different standard. SimCity may not be the game you wanted, the game my boss wanted or the game I frankly wanted, but accusing EA of lying and double-dealing and speculating like a bunch of anti-government conspiracy nuts just makes us seem petty and juvenile. No one’s forcing us to buy the game or making our sense of self-satisfaction contingent on SimCity conforming to our personal tastes (the latter’s all us).
