Jim Sterling & The Great Zelda Review Controversy

As long as you keep your finger on the pulse of the gaming industry, it should be fairly obvious what the meat and potatoes of this article is going to be about. Gaming critic and controversy lightning rod Jim Sterling recently posted his review of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and his score of 7/10 – a rating of ‘good’ going by the definition in his personal review policy – garnered a, shall we say, mixed response from some fans of the long running Nintendo franchise.

Many games allow you to experiment with different ways of dispatching an enemy. Whether your character will survive the experimentation is dependent on how fair the gameplay is. This is why I like the Souls/Bloodborne series since the games can be brutal but they are always fair and every time you die it is always your fault.

I would call a bunch of special Zelda snowflakes taking down an well known personality's site down for many hours because their 10/10 games dropped a whole 1% on metacritic controversial. Flooding his comments section calling him all the curse word you could think of and death threats.

So what constitutes a controversy in your eyes then?

Judging by the lack of input in this thread, it must not have been that controversial all along. Nobody cares.

Tell that to the people who DDOS'd his site and flooded his comment section with stupid comments and death threats.

mamotte429d ago

Should I tell that to all the people? Like, what? 20 people? And how mane hackers do you need to make a DDOS attack? Like, a zillion?

There is no controversy. It's just geeks being overly sensitive geeks.

Those sensitive geeks created the controversy.
