Listen to the fans but use professional sense in filtering the worthwhile suggestions from the fail suggestions. Best of both worlds :D --- "It is a good life we lead, brother." "The best. May it never change." "And may it never change us." -AC2 Want: Golden Sun DD, AC
Professionals are able to take a fans thoughts and ideas and create truly epic enhancements to a game.
But creating stuff fan based makes the game less of a development teams creation, and more of just a fans game.
its important for a developer to make their own game on their own ideas, but a little fan help is acceptable. --- Sparkster returns after 16 years in..... "Rocket Knight" My Alias for Conduit= "Shader" Monster Hunter Tri= "Deimos"
im sure that HVS is smart enough to filter the good ideas out from the not so good ones. with that said, i kinda like the fact that they are open to outside ideas, as a great idea can be found anywhere (lol so can a bad one, but you get what im saying)...
