The state of gaming journalism today

I find it hard to believe that an editor allowed a reviewer to toss such critical info outside of the review like some new drug advertisement hiding the fact that ingestion before sleeping may cause death.

It saddens me to think that some people are dropping over $60 for a game (during a recession, no less) that they were tricked into thinking is perfect. We deserve better from our gaming journalists.

A magazine or website that rates games on a five-star basis isn't going to split hairs on defining different levels of perfection, and it's ludicrous to expect as much. Then again, you can never underestimate the stupidity of the average reader...
