It's a mess.

Agreed.

Imagine we'd do that with bigger games. Would Demon Souls have won a popularity contest before people understood it? No. It took time for people to get what From was doing and look at it now.

Greenlight is an inherently flawed concept. This quote sums it up:

People always want the same shit and have to be forced to enjoy something new.
