I only see this as a positive for gamers because as we share and argue, and express our opinion, we are holding developers more accountable to putting out good games.

It used to be that a poor review didn't show up until the magazines shipped weeks after release. Now we know the very day of release, sometimes before - or at the worst a day or two after release.

And more valuable than reviews is peer opinions...on these forums about a game. Gamers unite!!!
