TSA writes "Before we go any further, I have one thing I feel I should say to act as a nice barrier to protect myself: I will happily admit that I’m not the biggest Nintendo fan. My favourite Nintendo game is Super Smash Bros: Melee, and I’m not really a big fan of anything else other than Pokemon. Whilst I do like Zelda, I do not like Ocarina of Time (I much prefer Majora’s Mask and, interestingly, Wind Waker), and I personally think Mario should have died out a long time ago. Whilst I’m not the biggest fan of Nintendo, I do like them (Pokemon is one of my favourite game series ever and I’m currently playing through Black), so please bear this in mind; I am not picking a fight.
Now that’s out of the way, I’ve been noticing a double standard here for a long time. By ‘here’ I mean the internet, but I don’t just mean comments on articles – it’s present in the articles themselves and often in the personal opinions of some of the best known gaming journalists out there...."
