Uhh, no. That analogy doesn't work at all. Mainly because I never said anything about rules in a game. I was talking about how the communities of a genre accept something in them. Last I checked, there aren't any features that both Pikmin and Starcraft both share have that are complained about in one and not the other.
Keep grasping at straws and changing what people said to make a point, Balobo.
...I'm not changing what you're saying, changing your bullshit probably would help you more in the long run.
You're saying that, because other games have cheap combos, we should just accept this and refrain from doing anything that would prevent this game from being a mindless jugglefest. Essentially, you're implying all games should share flaws because the community for one game is exploiting that game's flaw.
