What The 'Halo 4' PR Hoax Letter Says About Gamers And Video Game Journalists

A fake Halo 4 letter from a PR company to a video game critic has stirred the internet up. Why has the hoax gained so much momentum? (Halo 4, Xbox 360)

Its say that Gamers are the worst type of people in the world and anyone who has access to a computer and internet connection can be a Journalist.

I blame Hip Hop Gamers for all of this.

What it revealed was a petty person who attempted to shame Microsoft and 343i for Halo's success. It was an attempt to cast suspicion on the positive reviews Halo 4 has received. It was juvenile and really doesn't point to anything other than the pettiness of fanboyism.

LOL I believe I've said this before. Sometimes, you really can't win either way. Say something overly nice about a game and you're a sell-out. Say something demeaning to the title and you're obviously a no-talent hack.

People want to believe that the reviewers who disagree with them have been bought out. That all games journos are corrupt, whether they get paid to write or do it because they're are just enthusiasts.

Hmm. Got a lot of disagrees for that comment.

If this was a hoax, I can't believe the lengths some individuals would go to just to make a company look bad.

The fact that someone went out of their way to fake this proves that some people are just jealous of Halo's success. IDK why they did it, but I have my suspicions. The fact that some people still believe this is just sad.
