If you haven't got a significant financial stake in Star Citizen, it makes no difference to you whether it flops or not. The only people who have incentive to care are the ones who invested and people who invest what they're not willing to lose are not being smart investors.

People who have no financial stake in the project who act like they should care as much as those who do are just being silly. So far the only information to come to light on the project has been provided by a certified whack job and a handful of disgruntled employees. There's no credibility in what they say.

Bullshit. I have no financial stake in Star Citizen and it DOES make a difference whether it flops or not. WHat kind of stupid statement is that?

I have no financial stake in Tesla but I want the Model X to not flop. You don't think it is possible for someone to want to live in a world where an awesome game might exist? I would love to see it played, I might even buy it if it turns out good, like any other game.

WHat kind of stupid statement is that.... If you don't have a financial stake it doesn't make a difference if it flops or not. Complete crap from the voice of some disgruntled dude on the internet. People are allowed to think and feel things without being financially invested in them. It is called being human. Are you?

The point you misread is that if you have no stake in the project, you lose nothing if it doesn't work out. You might not gain what you wanted, but failure to gain is not the same as loss. There's a difference between being human and being a worry-wart.

I do have a stake in Star Citizen. I paid a lot of money early on for what I hoped would be a great game, and it's only ever been a disappointment since. We're running into a delayed game that cannot keep the promises made, especially to to the level of quality that was promised.

The smart investor would let it ride until the game is released and assess it then. You certainly aren't doing yourself any favors getting worked up on the word of people whose word shouldn't mean anything to you. That's just ludicrous.

I had pretty good luck with early access games before, with KSP, and Besieged. I looked into Star Citizen a few months ago. I spent a couple of hours trying to figure out what it was. I honestly laughed out loud when I realized that for the Low, low price of $45, I could get a ship, in a hanger and run around it and poke it. That is the extent of it. I thought I was missing something, but no, that was it. I laughed even harder when I saw that these "Ships" went up to a couple hundred dollars and were listed as "In stock".

I honestly do not know much about the game, Like I said, I spend a few hours trying to figure it out and never did get a grasp as to what was going on. I can say though, that this apparent business model is enough to keep me away from it.

I mean it's not like the largest kickstarter in history turning into vapourware could seriously damage any future potential kickstarters or anything of the sort right? Nah clearly this game is completely disconnected from the environment which spawned it.

It's not exactly a bad thing if Star Citizen flops and the backlash causes people to think more like investors before they hand over their money in the future. Investment carries the risk of loss. Always has. People need to know that and accept that. And we need to stop talking like the game has already failed. It hasn't, and the only people saying it will are the ones who have no credibility on the issue.
