As a reviewer and someone who writes a lot of opinion pieces about video games, I have come to realize you need to have some thick skin. The sad fact of the matter is that the main group of people who will read your work are going to be pretty fanatical one way or the other, so they are either going to read and agree with what you write, or they are going to disagree. Most don’t leave it at disagreeing however, they like to troll or flame or insight arguments. I feel that it’s this type of person that is actually causing a lot of reviewers to give out scores to games that they don’t actually deserve, we are seeing more and more reviewers bow to this type of pressure, so we aren’t seeing legitimate scores like in years past.
