Deviantart asked: Should you listen to your audience?
So this morning I checked my DA account and they were asking: Should you listen to your audience? Talking mostly about TMNT and Mass Effect. I decided to answer since I grew up with the original series of TMNT. So here’s my opinion on the question, not only for TMNT, but for any adaptations.
In my opinion, I really think fans should be more present trough the development of games and movies that are adapted from, for instance, tv shows or books. The fans are the ones who are gonna end up buying the largest part of the games and movies and therefore they are the ones that those producers should please the most. I’m not saying everything needs to be perfect, but changing something that has been in alot of people’s life for so many years (Like TMNT and aliens), is not really a good idea. For my part, I won’t go see TMNT. The reason: I grew up with the old ones, movies and series, and I do not want my vision of it haltered by some dude who wants to make more money over something that has turned into a classic and screw it up like they want to do. I’m not saying this is bad, the movie will even probably be great, certainly. But, there are just certain things you should not touch after they are part of our culture in some way. Like I said that’s my opinion, don’t hate, but I think the fans are the first people who should give their opinion trough some big changes like that. Make a poll or something I don’t know but don’t just go “ok i’ll change this because it’s old and classic and i’ll destroy it with some weird ideas to make more money over it” …People, there are tons of stories that should already be movies, just take those instead of re-making and re-making etc….
Ok i’m done lol
