It's just like the four stages of death, but in a different order.
1) Anger. "Those ^%$#ers! I wanted to make that game."
2) Depression. "Sigh. I guess there's nothing I can do about it."
3) Acceptance. "On the bright side, at least now I get to play it and I don't have to develop it myself."
4) Denial. (Once you actually get to play it.) "Hey, this isn't the game I wanted to make at all!"
