Because some of those negative critiques might just help TTG identify where they can make the second season even better than the first. Imagine that. If you liked the first season, how cool would it be to see the second season be considerably better still?!
The only way that will happen is for TTG to be able to get feedback BOTH positive and negative.
Fair enough about TV shows getting a lot of complaints. But, again, to them, I would also say "Be happy with what you get". Maybe it's just me - I'm a bit weird in that I don't really care about gameplay, as long as it's a genre I enjoy and the plot is to my taste. I actually prefer linear games than ones with branching options (the main exception there being Heavy Rain).
There is a difference between constructive criticism and just acting butt-hurt and hating the company. Any artist should be willing to listen to criticism in order to improve, that's obvious. I'm assuming this thread was started after the OP read the venting thread, which, while people have good points, many posts are over the top in their hatred. There's nothing wrong with a thread that counters another, especially since a few posts there said to defenders that they shouldn't be there, as it is a 'venting' thread.
I don't think there's anybody that can't 'handle' the negative comments. People just want to share their opinions. I don't know; I've just never felt it was my place to complain about what we are given. For me, there are positives and negatives in everything, even my favourite games ever. Everything has flaws. I'm just happy to have experienced what I perceive to be an exceptional story.
