Opinions can be critiqued (it's not like you can critique facts, LOL), but Wrapped Up In A Sheet is correct in that shunning him isn't really appropriate. People get tired of things. That's the nature of life. If you listen to the best symphony in the world every day, you'll get tired off it. Look at the most beautiful painting every day--ditto. These are static things. They can't help it if they can't continue to surprise and impress us as we, ourselves, grow and change into different people with different views and tastes.
When I read the OP's critique I look at the big picture: he spent over a year here creating nearly 3000 posts, largely related to these games. That gum may be stale to him now, but he got a hell of a lot of flavor out it for a long time. LOL
