I've been thinking about the last couple years and the on-off success with old or obscure genres being Kickstarted as well as new innovative ideas and IPs. But should we be trying to do this? What if we are doing a disservice to the industry by crowdfunding, even if our products are successful? Do you think that crowdfunding gives backers a false positive? Is this a case of sunk cost fallacy? Will more users overlook the flaws in an new or experimental game if they invested money into it? Just look at today's consumers engaging in the sunk cost fallacy. Despite xBone and PS4 being almost identical, consumers try to reassure themselves that the product they bought was superior when in reality the WiiU is the coolest one out there. Does this effect happen with new games out there being crowdfunded? Thoughts? P.S. I do not mean to offend anybody who has a PS4 or xBone. The WiiU being superior is simply a joke. I actually own a PS4....... but I do want a WiiU.
