In the lengthy post, Mahler compared certain developers on games such as the original Fable and Cyberpunk 2077 as being "snake oil salesman", who have lied to consumers about the games they are crafting. While Mahler's stance on the position appears unmoved, he's since apologised for his "aggressive tone" and has said he's "really sorry" - especially to those he mentioned by name.
The initial thread drew criticism from the gaming community, most notably in the replies, which felt Mahler wasn't in a position to attack his peers. However, comments to the apology seemingly connect with Mahler's sentiments more.
