People, what is fucking wrong with you? This was just a joke during the conference. What a fucking STRONG MESSAGE? Even to talk about 'OFFICIAL APOLOGY', though not require it? And what's up with insulting all these forum members who actually like Skyrim for what it is, and who are OK with this Skyrim meme, and other memes as well? You know if people start to be afraid or mad because of some little joke, just six words phrase, they should go and check their heads ASAP, because it is already a mental health issue. When people have issues with jokes CDPR members say, they definitely require professional help. ›››
It's was an extremely bad joke. I've already explained why memes are an extremely low form of humor and they shouldn't find their way into a mature and serious game.
But nobody actually believes that this game will be meme-ridden... am I right? Well, a lot of people got confused, those are mostly people that recognize Skyrim as a really poor game and are afraid that the Witcher franchise will take the drastic turn towards casualization.
Nobody is "angry". A lot of people are afraid though.
Ha! Trust me, I can clone you a hundred times over, and all hundred of you combined wouldn't understand and appreciate the Witcher, the intricacy of its plot, and the depth of its themes as much as I do.
Case in point.
Now you can stop embarrassing yourself and move on. ›››
That isn't even an argument. Try again.

Do you really want the Red team to take you so seriously that they clam up and say nothing that hasn't been approved by PR? That's what attacking them for off-the-cuff comments does. That's what companies who have come to fear their self-proclaimed fans do.
Making, publishing, buying, and playing games is supposed to be fun. There is no other reason to do any of these things at all. Disapproval in the name of high seriousness has no place in this. ›››
Games are an artform. Claiming that "art is just for fun" is simply wrong, people look for a lot of other things in art. In case of the Witcher, they look for a deep storyline, tough choices, maybe even a bit of self-discovery.
I'm explaining the situation at hand - a lot of people are afraid that Witcher will stop being a deep and mature RPG and start being Skyrim v2.0. I'm seeing a serious anger not only here, but mostly on the other parts of the internet as well. Using a 1-year old meme, that was never funny, that's probably the most hated meme in existence and also correlates to a game that nobody wants to see CDPR correlating to is a serious PR mistake.
