Why They're Rotten

  1. Very anti-consumer such as supporting Epic Games's store's shady practices.
  2. They are also very Anti-Gamergate as well.
  3. They are extremely petty saying that the multiple development delays for the last night is good.
  4. They are also very Anti-Japan and very bashful of Japanese entertainment.
  5. They called the flag of Kekistan a white supremacist symbol even though its supposed to satire against SJW culture.
  6. They also make fun of anime fans saying they have JRPG worship syndrome.
  7. Very incompetent reviews.
  8. They have no qualms about pushing fake news if it suits their narrative.
  9. They even tried to shame the SNK team for adding fanservice into their games.
  10. They are very smug and they always like to deem themselves above everyone else.
  11. They even think that horror games can work without danger even though it's supposed to be the main point.
  12. They heavily endorse politics in games and even stated that gamers should vote even though it's a personal choice and many gamers are either apolitical or centrist.
  13. They also push out clickbait articles and ridiculous trivial questions such as dogmeat's genitalia in Fallout 4.
  14. They are also hypocritically very bigoted and they label everyone from the south as lazy bigots.
  15. They have a really bad sense of humor.
