No I man what are the mechanics of it? Did they deliberately misinform the public (and not ''aybe this will be in Here" but "This is 100% guaranteed to happen!") and I don't see how the Company can hype, isn't that what the fandom does?  ???

For the umpteenth time, they did not lie to us, they did not hype.  We did that ourselves.  We saw one video and then spent 3 years building it up in our heads.

Yeah, pretty much... but people are gonna twist stuff and say the video from 2005 showed all this stuff the game doesn't have now etc... thus making it seem like a lie... even if that prototype and Spore are entirely different programs.

Not that I liked the game a whole load.  I played it a lot, trying so hard to like it (I even got the Galactic edition), even defying my friends, who insisted that the game was "SO GAY" (their words).  Sure, it's got loads of problems, such as gameplay being about as fun as making sandwiches, but it also has loads of good creation tools as well.  At the same time, I hyped up the game to myself, and I also realize that what I hoped was there was no fault of the developers, who did, as stated, make a program that was great in more ways than one.

The problem is some people think that once they pay money, they're entitled to the world.

The internet is a magical place, where linguistic and dialectic possibilities are endless. Why not embrace those variations and see where they lead you.
