It's nothing that profitable for the reviewers:

"Give us a good score, or you won't see another review copy of our games ever again, enjoy being dead last with your review that might as well be irrelevant!"

Paying someone? Pfffft...

I did not really think of it until I read the Game Informer review on Mass Effect 3 where the reviewer said something to the effect of " do not listen to people about a bad ending because as a long time fan of Mass Effect I am completely satisfied with the ending."

Yeah they get paid off. No doubt in my mind when someone has a pure bs statement like that. He could of liked it but completely satisfied my butt.

Its not a matter of opinion. They are either paid off or they aren't its not an opinion.

Do I THINK they are paid off? Maybe. But do I read reviews or let those people influence my decisions on what games to buy? No.

So I don't care either way.

What is this...

I don't even understand the question being asked here. Are reviewers paid off by game companies? That isn't an opinion, there is proof that it happens on occasion both directly and indirectly.

Or is the question, do reviews of games pay off? Well they generate revenue for review hosting websites and organizations. They seem to impact sales. I don't personally care about reviewer sites like IGN but I have some youtube personalities whose opinions I trust and generally agree with.


This. I was wondering why he was asking it like it's an opinion. lol

You may not like a game, you may not like the reviewer, and you may not like the game company. But answer HONESTLY are they paid off?


No, they're not. Anyone who says they are probably believe in every moronic conspiracy theory that comes along...even ChemTrails.
