I understand that line of thinking, but it seems like a bad decision most of the time. Look at game movies, they always justify their changes "to make it more mainstream," but all it does it alienate the existing fanbase without gaining a new one.

In that case, they'd have a failure on their hands almost by default, even if the rest of the movie was decent.
At this point, I'm just wondering if the movie is ever coming out after all this time.
Anyway, that's a discussion for another thread.
