As I'm making my game (which I make as a hobby) there's things that have cropped up that honestly kind of make me feel a bit sick regarding people.
There seems to be this idea that game developers should be altering their games and stories to suit one certain type of fan, that they should take into account if something might "hurt a fan's feelings", and that if the developer doesn't listen to what people say, they're 'problematic and bad developers'.
I've seen people complain about common things in a genre like horror, saying "People shouldn't make it gory! People shouldn't make it have ghosts/monsters!" "People shouldn't make it have jump scares!" "People shouldn't make it touch on uncomfortable subjects!" and it's like..those are the GUTS of horror. Why even say you like horror, if you hate everything that is the core of horror?
People need to realize that just became someone is making a game, they are not required to make it cater to everyone, or even a specific type of people. If something in the game bothers you? Then don't play it. Don't sit there and hate on it and try to demand it cater to you. Does it include motifs you don't like? Don't play it. Makes you upset? Don't play it. Too scary? Don't play it. Think it's dry, boring? Don't play it.
If you feel like that about a game, then you need to realize: IT IS NOT FOR YOU, and that's fine. Everything doesn't need to be for you. Different people like different things.
People really love FFX13. I don't. Does it make it a bad game? No. Just makes it a game I don't care about. Bad in my eyes? Parts, sure. Bad in other's eyes? Not so much!
I don't like zombies. I find them boring and not scary. Does that make them a bad trope? Not at all. People can love zombies. Just because it's not my thing doesn't mean it can't be their thing. It doesn't mean I have to lament about every zombie game that comes out, or feel that the popularity they get is unjust. People have different tastes.
A lot of people like slasher horror. I don't. I find human beings...not so scary. Does it make it wrong when a slasher movie or game becomes popular? Not at all. Etc, so on and so forth.
I hate this phase where people decide they should try to censor games, or tell the devs what they can and can't make. Many devs adore and respect their fans, but if you're really someone who has that much hate and tries to demand that a game change to suit you personally, then you are not a fan.
