Tbh I think that is more of a misdirection tactic by presenting something that will receive mass appeal as important and put it in the forefront and focus of discussion so as to avoid other issues that are move involved such as balance, mechanics or writing taking a prevalent spot. It is a very commonplace marketing tactic and should tell you a lot about the company in and of itself.

I am here to discuss a video game. Please do not try to rope me into anything other than that. Thank you.
