Why is it such a big deal that this game developer was in bed with a gaming journalist? One stellar review wouldn't make or break a game anyways.

Credibility issues, violations of professional ethics, other various abuses the dev in question has perpetrated are also in play like the false flag harassment of an internet community.
Your problem is you've spent your whole life thinking there are rules. There aren't. We used to be gorillas.

Streisand effect. The efforts to cover it up and silence criticism is a bigger story than the event itself.

There wasn't even a positive review from all the screwing. It's amazingly blown out of proportion.

That's a part of it, but I still think the #1 reason it's getting so much attention is sex. Phil Fish didn't even get this many 500 topics, and people were *pissed* at him too.

Most likely the younger/virgin gaming crowd are making a big deal about it. 95% of us do not care.

The more I read about this, and the more I look at all the "evidence" people are posting, the more clear it seems that this is just a lot of baseless nonsense blown way out of proportion. Yes, she IS a horrible person. She's a pathological liar, and she sure seems to put out for pretty much anyone who will pay her a compliment. But none of that has anything to do with gaming, and the VAST majority of the accusations against her are based on nothing more than speculation or weak circumstantial evidence at best.
