When a game is delayed, it's commonplace to  bring Miyamoto quote which  says "A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad."

And while this is true, it doesn't change the fact the game is late and depending of who you are, your interest on it may have come and gone. Perhaps you now lack time, or have new interests.

Whatever the reasons, sometimes we build up our interest to match up a release date, like a hungry pavlovian dog, salivating to the release date and when this release date is busted, well..

Honestly, I lose interest on Mighty 9 when they showed the 3d graphics so for me delay or not changes little BUT if I was hyped by it I won't be happy in waiting for a polished version coming later.

Simply put, I want my game polished and on time, and if you can't do it don't put a damn release date. Getting a polished, working gameis better than a buggy ridden version but doesn't change delays sucks.

It's almost like receiving a working game those days is some kind of divine blessing and we should praise it like God's gift.
