QOTW - 8/24 - Should a Game Developers Personal Life Change How We View Their Games?

Greg Micek writes: "We asked our panel of experts a pretty straight forward question this week: "Should a game developers personal life change how we view their games? Remember, each authors comments are their own, and no one sees one another's responses until the story is posted" (Industry)

Perhaps not how they view they game they are playing but I don't see an issue with not supporting a developers for various personal reasons. Take fish. That guy is an arse. He is offensive to everyone around him (even his own fans) and he is a bit melodramatic. By supporting his games I am supporting the individual (especially when it comes to indies). He isn't a nice person especially for someone who is currently a one hit wonder. I look at other developers like the Thomas Was Alone guy why doesn't make unnecessary noise but just makes games. I will support him over an arse (especially since my own time is limited)

I don't understand many indie developers approach to self promotion. It is all about them and not the studio. Granted usually the studio is just them but they bring their personal life's into it just by making that connection. They can have a company and a private twitter.
