I don't think you can say that there's strong censorship on this forum, certainly not compared to beehives such as NeoGaf. Well-founded criticism is always good. Addressing the texture and lightning problems in the trailer is a necessity. But this thread has turned into a toxic mix of slander, insults and scaremongering.Sure, let's close a thread where people are openly stating their concerns about the game in the hopes that they are addressed or listened to. Typical video game forum behavior; the slightest negativity is met with backlash as fans rush to the aid of their favored developer, moderators then close these threads and people get more frustrated with having no method of discussing their "negative" opinion.
Everyone should quit with the personal attacks, stay on topic and project whatever opinion they have in a mature, polite and concise manner. That said, locking this thread would essentially be shutting out the people with concerns and is essentially restricting freedom of speech.
