Bitmob Community Writer Andrew Hiscock uses the magic of Twitter to break down typical reactions to video-game reviews. The results are both entertaining and sadly familiar.
Many people don't go past the denial stage. :/
I can't believe you would say that. Ugh. Whatever.
No, anger is pretty big as well.
True, Thats why im going to Rage annon Anonymous (group)
Those comments...It's like looking into the face of madness.
It's like looking into the face of N4G. Especially the anger and bargaining parts...
I don't know why these still surprise me, but I can't believe people get so worked up over a review *BEFORE* they play the game!
Agreed. It's amazing how you can come to the conclusion that the reviewer is a lazy, biased, stupid liar when you have no first-hand knowledge of the game they reviewed.
OMG some people will disagree with your reviews, get over it!
Seriously. So your review sucks, Joystick, so what? That's no reason to be so damn insecure that you must write an immature article to justify your awful review.
reviews are that persons opinion and it has no bearing on what games i like/dont like. i purchase my games based off of my level of interest in said game. if i gave reviewers/other peoples opinions more weight than my own the only games i'd only be playing or should be playing are GTA, halo, CoD, gears, forza, fallout, fable, mass effect, battlefield, and i would have missed out on games like mirrors edge, WKC, alan wake, heavy rain, folkore, VC to name a few. in short i dont care about opinions from others on what games i should like and buy.
