Forbes magazine proves to be better than gaming journalism when talking games.

Its not really bribes. Its losing money from ad space, loosing potential readers when the game devs with-holds a review copy, and risking your job when you do all these things, all because you wanted to write an honest review.


This is true. But then again, why would you want to read a supposedly "opinionated" article when the guy practically has a gun at his head and is told to write positively about it?

Might as well just browse their homepage and see if they have any ads for the game in question. Yep, that's a "9/10 it's okay."

How many reviewers do you think have a gun to their heads? And how many of them get read anyway?

People either believe the review, or they don't. While many are calling for reform, few are actually championing for it.

Eh you have publishers and developers manipulating reviews(I'm betting it happens less than we think, possibly just major sites and mags) but we also have gamers lashing out at any review that shines a negative light on a game they were hyped for. Many lash out before even playing the game themselves.

IMO people shouldn't waste time championing anything as at the end of the day the individual will play it and decide for themselves.
