The customer is always right, something I feel like is being forgotten more and more in todays industry.

Customers aren't always right. It's actually very destructive if all companies only did what the customers wanted from them.

But when a large group of people complain, they should at least have the decency to look into it and do something about it. No doubt.

Ummm, no, Activision just saw that people liked COD4, then they took the opportunity and released 100 more CODs to make lots of cash. They don't care what the fans want, they just want their moneys!

Killzone 2 when they tried to make the online more COD friendly.

I find alot of the major gameplay problems could have been spotted in-house. Really if developers did their testing there wouldn't be a need for up roars.
