In short: "I'm a great person so I refused the money because I knew it was the wrong thing to do. Love me."

I would add: 'And I came up with an idea for a story to talk about how I didn't want to review it so I could get paid anyway.'

Don't worry about it. Never even heard of it.

Alternate title, 'Why I gave the Binding of Isaac a really short and vague bad review without bothering to explain either the first thing about the game or what I didnt like about it'.

If you actually read the article he ASKS whether he should do a review on it or not.
This isn't the actual review.

Kakihara2476d ago

He asks us whether he should review the game then goes on to tell us he absolutely hated it. That's a review, it's not a good one but it's a review. It doesnt matter if i say,'i'm not going to review the new Indiana Jones movie but i hated it, i thought it was boring' I'm still reviewing it regardless of whether or not i told you i was.

ChickeyCantor2475d ago

He just said he hated it, he didn't specifically say why.
That's not a review but a rant.

I'm sorry, but I think this guy is way off base. It's not a matter of integrity if you're just going to go off and write about how you didn't write about the game. It's like making a donation to a charity, then going around and bragging about it; kinda takes the class out of the whole ordeal.

I appreciate you trying to keep your integrity, and if that's what you wanna do, go for it, man. I'm not trying to offend you... but make the decision and move on.

Though now I am a little curious to see WHY you hated the game, because personally I feel it's the best $5 I've spent on a game in a long time.

Might be cause he just doesn't like that type of game? Like if they made me review a fighting game or a racing one.

Or Crysis 2. Cause that game sucked. Bad. Viscously. It was boring. It was terrible.

But yeah. Maybe that.

If you know that you can't review a game fairly, then props for not reviewing it. However, if you can't take a game for what it is, review it without bias, and put forward a professional review regardless of what the game is, then perhaps you shouldn't be reviewing games?
