Why They're Rotten

  1. Very pro-censorship.[1]
  2. They're also anti-gamer, because they spearheaded the "Gamers Are Dead" media blitz. [2][3][4][5]
  3. One of their ex-writers is a sex offender.[6][7]
    • This ex-writer would later get arrested after the FBI investigated his behavior by disguising themselves as children through a chat session. Hypocritically enough, the ex-writer was known for baselessly accusing anime fans of being pedophiles.
  4. They also defend sexism and racism towards white men.[8]
  5. They demand that all games have a very easy mode.[9]
  6. Unprofessional reviews, such as with Xenoblade Chronicles 2 as they mocked Pyra's outfit.[10]
  7. They even find sexism where there is none, such as in Conan the Barbarian.[11][12]
  8. They called the Diablo controversy a gateway to being a neo-Nazi.[13]
  9. Very supportive of corruption with other journalists.[14][15][16]
  10. Very anti-consumer as they called lootboxes "essential to gaming's future".[17]
  11. They also promoted a shady VR company as well too and painted them in a favorable light.[18]
  12. They also defend being bribed by companies to be favored in a positive light.[19]
