Okay aside from all this indie nepotism hoopla.. why are gamers acting like this is something new? wasn't it always like this? isn't it kinda obvious that big companies like activision give money under the table to give themselves perfect 9's and 10's? this has been like the norm since HD era.
As a gamer after playing so many games can anyone honestly think that these reviews are unbiased and fair? i sure as hell don't! i always take their reviews with a grain of salt and try the damn game for myself or watch reviews made by genuine gamers like me.
