And sometimes you can't please anybody.
For years, LucasArts has been the target of fanrage that came from the cancelling of Sam & Max: Freelance Police, a sequel to the 1990s adventure game Sam & Max Hit the Road. Loyal adventure game fans felt that the company had turned its back on them in favor of making a quick buck on Star Wars games.
Anytime we put out a new game, there was a very vocal minority of people who would complain on our forums and across the net saying things like "Who cares about Star Wars!!?! Make more Monkey Island games!!"
Well, fast forward to Monday of this week. LucasArts announces the impending release of The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition and Telltale Games' Tales of Monkey Island. While the adventure game fans of LucasArts all seem genuinely happy with the announcement, there's now messages like this on our forums:
"I HATE U LUCASARTS Save Star Wars: Battlefront 3 NOT Monkey Island
UGGG THEY NEED TO RELEASE BATTLEFRONT 3 NO1 GIVES A SH1T ABOUT Monkey Island"
So there you go. Make Star Wars: Battlefront? Get yelled at for not making Monkey Island. Make Monkey Island? Get yelled at for not making Battlefront.
