The one that still gets me is the IGN (I think?) RE 2 review where the reviewer initially misunderstood some of the second scenario/NG+ stuff.This is a great post. We need to start not tolerating this type of nonsense on Era. Another example that comes to mind is the fake controversy over AC Odyssey grinding last fall, where every single person who was playing the game said it wasn’t a thing at all, only to be shouted down by pitchfork wielders desperate for their next dust-up.
They’re electronic toys at the end of the day. If you’re getting this bent out of shape over them, you need to step back and re-evaluate some things about yourself.
People, including some staff, were harshly mocking the reviewer for this supposed horrible incompetence where he didn’t actually play what he was taking about, etc. etc. Meanwhile, if they actually read the review - instead of just going by the small excerpts in image form in the OP - it was clear that it was a much more understandable mistake than what it was being framed as, and that he actually had played more of the game after realizing it. But it got pages and pages and pages of people going at the reviewer.
Shit like that and “puddle gate” absolutely should not have any space on this forum, imo. It’s just harmful nonsense. It shouldn’t be entertained.
