<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR> Indeed, one of the perpetual questions facing developers is just how much they should listen to their fans. On the one hand, hard-core fans are your best advertisers, and they usually know the game better than the developer does.

i found this just flicking thru some web pages, looking for the real benefit of gamer feedback and if its hijacked by myopic zealots. Unfortunately it didnt really capture what i was thinking.

Then i found this:

does this sound familiar?
