Chris Roberts made a kickstarter for the biggest scope game in existence, and thats what everyone wanted at that time. In hindsight I think a lot of people now realise that because he didn't have a gaming company ready, and the kickstarter video is nothing more then a scripted sequence that meant that none of his timelines were realistic at the kind of high quality many people would have expected. Even with a time machine, going back and changing the kickstarter to the real release date, or reducing the scope to what he can achieve in the claimed timeframe would not have resulted in anything of value being created. Changing Chris Roberts to someone else would have similar results, not because nobody else can do it, but simply because nobody else is willing to try. "gullible fools" is what made Star Citizen possible, and I mean that in the nicest way as I'm hoping the end result, either SQ42 or the MMO is enjoyable to play at the insane standards Chris Roberts has. I am 100% sure that if Chris Roberts was forced to jump into a time machine and tell the 100% truth in his kickstarter from what he knows today, Star Citizen and SQ42 would not happen.
