god how do people even take themselves seriously when they say “if you want it different make your own game/movie/book/etc”
they act like they’re so pragmatic and ~that’s how the market works~ and all that bullshit but it doesn’t even make sense within their own capitalistic context
you wanna throw out all the importance of what these things actually mean to people just for cold, raw numbers? sure we’ll play it your way
you see there’s this thing called demand
demand is the golden goose of the market. producers are either frantically hunting it down, or—like more recent market discussions are encouraging entrepeneurs to strive for—creating demand that isn’t there yet. (an “I never knew how much I needed this” kind of thing; Apple products are always trotted out as the example for this)
people start freaking out when demand drops. people start flocking to where demand increases. businesses spend millions of dollars trying to track and predict demand. it’s supposedly the very basis of capitalistic money-making.
so when you divebomb into these conversations with UM IF YOU WANT THE THING MAKE IT YOURSELF, you’re not just being laughably unrealistic, but you’re trying to shut up people who are basically saying “helloooo, this is what we want here! Here’s our demand! we’re saving you the trouble of trying to figure it out and waving it right in your faces!!” to be like nahhhh, who needs demand, if you want something make it yourself!
that is totally why people who want shoes make them themselves or people who want to take a flight on an airplane make the plane themselves and learn to fly it, right? or when people want to watch a movie adaption of some book they liked, they start hunting filming equipment and line up to buy the rights to it?
that’s totally why when trends show that people want more data storage for the space, or more internet capabilities on a cell phone, the technology industry wrinkles its nose and goes “um we already made what we want to make if you want better MAKE IT YOURSELF,” right?
your bullshit doesn’t even make sense by the most thoughtless, heartless numbers-and-dollar-signs methods. you’re not fooling anyone, and least of all us.
