Joseph Olin, president of Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences, said with no hesitation that "game reviewers are lazy," in an interview with Shack News.
Olin said that his "pet peeve" is when reviewers tackle games like Grand Theft Auto IV - which entitles enough gameplay hours to forget about your own life - and only base their criticisms on a few hours of gameplay, leading to unfair and inaccurate reviews. But apparently, he's not saying this just to mock critics, but to "challenge" them. However, it boggled our minds when he said the following in addition to the "lazy" factor:
"Not all, but in terms of the reviews [something like] 'This game isn't as good because let's compare it to that game over there and that game was great.' Who gives a, you know, bleep?"
Don't reviewers have base their opinions on something else other than personal taste to avoid bias? What do you think?
