Big Red, I think its fine to enjoy a game and criticize some of its weak points. Its what we do as consumers and tech geeks. I do agree with you that some made the same points over and over and it was a little overkill but I definitely think it was the defense forces that were trying to shove opinions down your throat as if they were factual and felt "pity" for you for not understanding their point of view.
It's like my Panny Viera. I love my TV and would not choose any other but a Kuro over it, but if someone said that screen has an image retention problem I wouldn't get upset I would agree. Everythings got its pros and cons. Surprisingly some owners of that TV say it is not an issue and will defend it to the death but they are lying to themselves.
With that said, I am addicted to this game and my wife is starting to get upset with me for neglecting her.
