Your strawman was pretending my opinion was that nothing can become outdated, like silent movies.

They don't have a choice.

If your argument is that two games are enough to set in stone "franchise expectations," IMO that's not a very solid basis for it.
Isn't it? Why? Because the two tanking games that didn't keep to franchise expectations prove that? Because there isn't a significant userbase that clearly state their expectations of the franchise? Because the original developers were really vague about their intentions in bringing GURPS to the computer?

Yes, saying "You appear to have run out of arguments" wouldn't be empty rhetoric.

I'm sorry, but you don't seem to have a better reason to invoke Fallout shouldn't change from TB to RT than that *you* prefer it. Maybe I'm mistaken. You can always throw the old "the market demands it" spiel, if you think it'll help you, though.
