No, the lesson is to ignore people's bitching and make the game as good as it can be. Why the fuck would you rip out features just because some losers on a message board complain about them being buggy?the less features you give the player the less things they have to complain about if those features are not perfect. that's what i'm talking about.
in the witcher you couldn't kill civilians - nobody cared.
you couldn't talk to them and they didn't have routines - nobody cared
no police ai - nobody cared.
you couldn't create your character (but you could change hairstyle) - nobody cared
no different cars to drive - nobody cared.
no life paths - nobody cared.
no deep progression system - nobody cared.
now they added those things (some of them better than others) so you are giving the people ammunition to bash the game if they are not happy with how those system works. the lesson here is remove them unless you can implement those systems in a perfect way. nobody will complain about things they never knew
