@bezza2011: Actually reviewers on Gamespot usually (you cant never say always) review the games they are interested in. That´s why the fighting games are usually reviewed by McGee. The nba2k14 by Tom McShea and the rpg by VanOrd.
They only review games in the genres they are interested in.
I do get the feeling that Video Reviews here used to be longer and delve deeper into certain aspects of the game and are becoming shorter.
But the written review has, luckily remain pretty unchanged
