IGN Again Illustrates Why I No Longer Visit Their Site.

Forums - Gaming Discussion - IGN Again Illustrates Why I No Longer Visit Their Site.

That is some funny stuff. First, he lied to the DEVELOPERS of the game about not playing it on normal, then he omits that section of his review? That's some low down, dirty stuff right there. I'm glad that I don't usually read "professional" reviews for games, although I tend to just gloss over them to see what the reviewers think of certain aspects.

Also, I didn't know that Pixeljunk Sidescroller was a platformer; I thought it was a sidescrolling shooter.



Around the Network

Yeah, IGN consistently has some of the least professional reviews from a large gaming publication. I stopped visiting the site a few years ago. It's a pretty sad thing it's such a popular site.



Food for thought: Shove an apple in your brain

Good to see that things are beginning to swing further against Hatfield. Hopefully provides a wakeup call for him

Leave Catfield alone!

How can you not like IGN? I think the way they treat video game journalism is awesome (tons of personality and not just facts and figures). Sure they don't have the best writers, but the writing is still good and the personality that comes out in the editorials, reviews and especially podcasts (you have to listen to gamescoop, knockin' boots and podcast beyond) more than makes up for it. By far my favourite gaming site. And yeah, the'll make small mistakes or have controversial editorials now and then, but everyone does that, the only reason why IGN gets so much attention when these things happen is because it's the biggest gaming site out there.

What's wrong with Hatfield?

Eh, their review qualities are getting lower and lower. I rely more on word of mouth now, as that's the most honest and indepth source of information you can get.



weren't you all madly in love with ign for giving uncharted 3 a 10 just a few days ago?



"I don't know what this Yamcha is, but it sounds just like Raditz."

There is no professionalism in gaming reviews or media. Wake up.

And this was not the only offense. After the reaction to this they put this assclown on their Nintendo podcast, then things got fun
