I agree. It's as if people were using developrs of ANY game-making company as their PERSONAL scapegoat for their PERSONAL frustration nowadays.

- Super Action RPG 2 is released
- People complain about how it is different from Super Action RPG 1, clearly a superior game
- 2 years pass and Super Action RPG 3 is released
- People complain about how it is different from Super Action RPG 2, clearly a superior game
- 2 more years pass and self-proclaimed "fans" begin to produce a clone of Super Action RPG 1
- The clone is ignored by the mass of players : no-one plays this clone except the makers + a few more
- 2 more years paas and other fans begin to poduce clones of Super Actiion RPG 2 & 3 as well
- both clones are ingnored by the mass as well, except for their few fans
