Anyway it's not the end of the world or the gaming world, there are still plenty of enjoyable game franchises out there that are backed by decent developing companies. I know that a lot of us won't heed these words but I'd rather remember the glory days of LA (Maniac Mansion, Monkey's Island, Super Star Wars, KOTOR I & II, etc) and continue playing those classics, remembering how they shaped my gaming cabinet rather than dwell on the inevitably obvious outcome of Disney's consumption of Lucasfilm. Just my 2 cents. /steps off soapbox
I don't think that most people would disagree with you. I think a lot of us were hopeful, but we weren't holding our breath for titles like 1313 to be quality games or even ever released. We've all been stung by LA's broken promises at one time or another.

If I die today, I'm happy how my life turned out
