I actually never followed the whole g2g affair. Can someone give me a more extensive gist of it?
Not much to say about it. They come up with three ideas for a character, mechanic or concept and put the community to vote on it. The winner gets implemented, the losers do not. This is fine for fluff and even for units types, but apparently they extended the concept to bug fixing and QOL improvements at one point, which is just odd.

Features too.  Where three great features would come out and the two losers would never be considered again.

I don't see why other companies don't adopt this model.

Please vote on the feature you'd like us to put into the next Civilization game:

A) Technology
B) War
C) City Development

Trendy is doing something similar with Dungeon Defenders 2, but it's being treated as a priority queue.  "Which feature do you want us to spend more time on for the next update?" kind of thing.

That sounds a lot more reasonable. Probably isn't a bad idea, actually.

Hasn't been too bad so far.

What's really been frustrating has been the "Oh...that thing...Uh, the guy who was working on that quit and we...have no idea how it works." for some teased features that get quietly forgotten about.

Well, that's fine for an excuse as far as stalling goes...but how can that justify just dropping a promised feature? If some dude who quit could do it, I suppose the core team could figure out how to do it on their own some time, too?

Its not stuff that's been scrapped entirely, it's just been stuff that's been put aside because no one has an understanding of how it's supposed to work.  And it's not stuff that came up for a vote, it's more stuff that was talked about in a blog post or similar.

Blah blah blah, Endless Space was a horrendous mess, blah blah because Games 2 Gether, blah blah blah.

I'm sure people remember the gist of what I said. :P

"Games 2 Gether"?

What?

I particularly remember the "Trade route summary" screen that took HOW long to get added to the game after release?

Because obviously no one would want basic knowledge necessary to running their empire at the release.

Dead Space 3, if you could call it a space game. Gone are the peaks and valleys that made the same game so very exciting in its previous two prequels. This game is nothing but a constant flood of predictable, ammo-saturated combat areas. All you do is spend way too much time fighting other gun-toting humans. That's about it.

Sorry for Necroing, just felt like those two games are worth to mention:

Not as bad games, the ones who read through the discussion might see why I am sharing those:
