Default What Game Developers Hate About Videogame Reviewers

Here's a nightmare scenario for a game developer. You've just finished a two-year project and you're exceptionally proud of the many obsessive details that you've poured into your Civil War turn-based strategy. You've revolutionized the genre, you've created something that the fans have been begging for and you're excited about the response.

Then an enthusiast press publication hands your review to their FPS specialist.

She uses 600 words explaining how Civil War games can never be as exciting as shooting alien zombies and gives you a "C". You go home and kick your goldfish.
