I hear people complain about IGN all the time, but I never hear any concrete reasons as to why. The only complaints I ever hear are "Wah! Wah! They have a different opinion from me and gave this game that I like a bad review!"

Oh no, how dare someone have a different opinion from you.

But seriously, why all the hate? I've never really been to IGN, so I honestly don't get it. Are they a legitimately bad website, or is it really just because of the opinion thing?
Good gameplay can easily salvage a bad story.

its just the opinion thing.

IGN gives a good review to the game they like its usually "see this game i like has good reviews that proves its good".

IGN gives a bad review to a game they like its "IGN sucks anyway, cant spell ignorant without IGN." etc.

They're the same as any other reviewer. They only write their opinions on games... nothing really to hate them for. I disagreed with their reviews for Sonic Unleashed and God Hand, but it didn't lead to hate.

For one, I got sick of clicking on an "article" when it's really a vid about them talking about the subject.

Opinions will vary, but I don't like their personalities.

Not fond of the website layout. Message boards are lulzy though

2 days ago I deleted all my ign bookmarks and got into gametrailers, haven't looked back since.

They said if you like Uncharted 2 more than Mass Effect 2 you are a fanboy.

They take bribes. They're biased. That's why people hate them .
