But tonight one message stands out from the rest. Romero's reply tempo is upset when he begins to read a message from a game fan who seemingly picked up Romero's e-mail address off an online site. "Make a public statement that Daikatana is really a thought and some screenshots," the pithy e-mail begins. Then it gets more personal. "I'm here to tell you: Your days as a game developer are absolutely over." Each word of the author's prose further accentuates the prevailing theme that is stated in the concluding paragraph: "I think it would be impossible for you to sleep at night, knowing that you milk the industry and blanket yourself under the sheets of pity." Ik vind trouwens dat de mensen wel snel zijn vergeten wat Romera allemaal heeft bijgedragen aan de ontwikkeling van First Person Shooters. En iemand op deze wijze persoonlijk aanvallen vind ik niet kunnen!
