This is my thoughts on this article…

I want to know what the original creators of TMNT think about those changes. Isn't that important? I know I personally would pissed to no end if someone took something of mine and changed things about it. Especially some key points.  I think Michael Bay for the most part is an idiot who can't come up with original ideas, so he steals other people's ideas and makes them his own and attempts to make money off of them.  Transformers one was pretty cool, the rest junk. He wasn't trying to make a good film those last two films though. That's obvious.
This is kind of like a so called comic artist who blatantly steals panel art and poses and puts their characters in place of other people's characters, case in point Nick Simmons and his entry into the comic book world, which didn't last long.  To me what Michael Bay is doing is no different than that.
I'm all for creators rights in ignoring what fans want, because you will never please every fan out there. But I'm sick of junk like these happening. Michael Bay doesn't care about the fan, that's obvious in his decision to change important elements to the story. He just cares about making money.  Just like the studios that are backing him. The truth is most of people who own and run the companies of our beloved creations, don't care about you as a fan; you are a consumer and nothing more. This is just my thoughts obviously and everyone is entitled to agree or disagree, but you can look at the history of how fans have been treated. I really don't care if Michael Bay makes a Ninja Turtle movie or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie; he's already proven himself to make worthless junk of movies a long time ago. I won't waste my money to go see it.  
I didn't play mass effect 3, but if you promise your players one thing, and then don't deliver that in the end, then yeah you should expect angry fans. I've heard about the end. Sounded like a pretty stupid move on their part.  I read once a rule of storytelling is if you promise your audience one thing and then by the end of that book, you have not made due on that promise, you have done a bad job in storytelling. I'm not sure how much I think this is true, but I can see the reason behind this rule.
A great example I have found of fans interacting with the creator is this one. Dragons Bard, a serial novel written by Tracy Hickman (of Dragonlance and Ravenloft fame ).  I'm not registered because right now I cannot afford it, but I have read about this, and heard many interviews with Tracy Hickman, and what he is doing over there is an amazing idea. If more creators did this kind of thing I think they would care more about their fans.
At the same time, sometimes the fan is wrong, and you cannot please every fan.
