That really doesn't annoy me so much, but the benefit of having the YNFG label, which is permanent even if the project changed into "something else".
For example…>Some Dev makes a game>Hey guys it's a YNFG>#YNFG>Caught the attention of YN&misc fanbase>Now it's not>The marketing effect remains untouched forever
Some of these still use the YN tags in their blogs and websites after moving to the "something else" area.
I doubt Answered Prayers is the case though, dev chan is low profile and it's success happened just naturally.
Granted, it can happen that in the middle of the development of your game you see the potential to make it grow into something 100% yours, but it happened a… few times, to think everyone is innocent.
Mfw I'm making a game and watching those fuckers right now.
