Plus, check the phrasing, I said 'almost'. I'm exaggerating. Who rattled your cage?

Like Super Paper Mario. It's a fun game, but it turned what was an RPG to side-scroller. I was furious at the time (because I didn't know if it was the last one) because it didn't belong in the franchise. It wasn't what the series was known for which is why I was mad. Yes the 3DS one is going back but... I have my own personal issues with that.
BK: N&B while yes, it's a spin-off(?) the problem was that it was Rare's last chance to reclaim their name to Microsoft, so they chose to bring back Banjo. But instead of coming back with the Banjo we all know and love, they did a spin-off game instead. And now because the game did so poorly, they're stuck making Kinect games. In fact, they could have just made BK3 and then after something like Diddy Kong Racing with the BK:N&B engine (no pun intended) and that would've worked out MUCH better. And yes, while most of Rare's talent left years ago, BK:N&B was the final nail in the coffin.
So there are genuine reasons to be upset if you're changing core elements of a franchise. And like the example with Dead Space 3, it looks like it's going to be a watered-down version of its predecessors, not to mention like Jim said, a homogenization of shooters which will make it end up being dull and less original than the first.

Which means during this brief moment of time he let an outside influence nearly shift an opinion he had already settled upon. An opinion which has NOTHING to do with Jim Sterlings attitude. That is not something an intelligent person considers even for a brief moment. If someone says something you agree with on a deep personal level you don't then reconsider because that persons attitude is not pleasing to you. As I said it's moronic and the opposite of intelligent.
If you disagree with me I hope it isn't out of spite. If it is you just prove my point.
