Why They're Rotten
- Very pro-censorship.
- They're also anti-gamer, because they spearheaded the "Gamers Are Dead" media blitz. 
- One of their ex-writers is a sex offender.
- 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.
- They also defend sexism and racism towards white men.
- They demand that all games have a very easy mode.
- Unprofessional reviews, such as with Xenoblade Chronicles 2 as they mocked Pyra's outfit.
- They even find sexism where there is none, such as in Conan the Barbarian.
- They called the Diablo controversy a gateway to being a neo-Nazi.
- Very supportive of corruption with other journalists.
- Very anti-consumer as they called lootboxes "essential to gaming's future".
- They also promoted a shady VR company as well too and painted them in a favorable light.
- They also defend being bribed by companies to be favored in a positive light.
