Get over it, huh?  Nah, I think I will continue to point out hypocrisy where I see it.  When someone allows "fun" to override an objective look at a game, I can no longer take them seriously as a reviewer.  Of course, I think it has a little more to do with it than just "fun."  Read $$$.

Right, like "fun" isn't kind of important when it comes to videogames.  You're totally right, game reviews should just be based around technical merits.  "Fun" shouldn't matter.  

The funny thing is, when someone no longer credits how much "fun" a game is, I can no longer take them seriously as a reviewer.  That's kind of why I play games to start with so it's rather important to me.  I know people really like to whine about review scores but I don't think I've ever heard anyone try to claim that enjoyment isn't an important aspect. 

Hmm.  Was that what I said?  Nope.  I guess the quotations weren't enough to get the point across.  Oh well.
