Are Indie Games Getting A Free Pass From The Big Review Sites?

Voxel Juice writes: "You take a look at any major video game website and you’ll be hard pressed to find any review of an indie game that score below 7/10. Do all of these games deserve such lofty praise? Is there a different style of reviewing or scoring policy for games coming from developers who don’t have a big team or a large publisher behind them?"

"Many indie developers find it hard to get coverage for the simple reason they don’t know the right people. And by the right people I mean the editors and writers of the most popular websites." (Industry)
