As you are all most likely aware, Watch Dogs has been delayed. A decision that resulted in much gnashing of teeth from folks who were — like me — really looking forward to playing this game on next gen consoles.

So here's the thing: which is it going to be? Are we going to complain when games get delayed or are we going to let human beings have their work/life balance?
I dunno. I think it's perfectly legitimate to have a bit of a whinge when a game gets delayed. Mainly just a friendly 'awww I was really looking forward to that' whinge. Full on, head tilted back, screams of dismay towards the heavens, or attacks on the publisher/developer? I think that's taking it too far.
Anyway: how do you react when games get delayed, and how far is too far?
