Maybe you remember that this was one of the most hated games of all time when it came out. They didn't have a marketing team and so the press was hyping this game to no end with some help from the developer. And it completely underdelivered. But they didn't damage control much and just kept working on the game and putting in stuff that they had promised before and now there's actually a lot of people who like the game.
If you want the full story you can check it out here but I mainly like this story because it shows even if you completely fuck up and disappoint everyone if you show your good intentions with your actions with some time and a lot of hard work people will give you another chance.
And this is where it has lead today :)
