This is kind of where I lie. I played and got as much enjoyment out of the game as I could. The backlash, bad reviews, missed potential, etc. dampened the experience significantly, especially since I'd been anticipating it since 2006 when it was revealed on Game Informer's cover.

He's lost all of my respect and continues to show that he has little, to no respect for the Aliens IP, fans or gaming community.

Not how to handle a controversial situation, Randy.
