I agree with what he was saying, but it all just seemed like common sense that everyone should know by now. People who say "It's not finished yet!" every time someone complains about an Early Access game are fools who don't understand the point of "Early Access" games.

Personally though, I wish the Early Access fad would completely end, it's a terrible idea to support and is only going to hurt the gaming industry far, FAR more than it will help.

My main issues with "Early Access" complainers:
1. They don't know how the game works. They don't look for answers. They just can't do something and call it a bug.
2. They buy a game off of Steam in EA expecting it to be finished.

I should hope they will be finished, but the way the Early Access fad is looking, a lot of games probably won't ever be finished.

I think he meant finished as in finished NOW, not finished as in finished later.

I meant that they expect it to be finished when they buy it, despite the disclaimer, not that it never gets finished.
