I'd like to say I'm surprised that ResetEra banned both Angry Joe and SkillUp simply because they posted reviews for TLOU 2 that were critical of the game, especially it's writing, but I'm surprised by nothing when it comes to Era's moderation. They seem to ban anybody who thinks even a little bit differently from them.
Did you see the way angry joe reacted to the leaks and abby, and his mindset going into the game?? He did not give the game a fair chance. Same with skill up and their reactions to pre launch. Atleast try to act professional when going in to review a game.
But they're not professional critics, and they have never claimed to be. There is a reason why their reviews don't show up on Metacritic. They are just gamers like you and I, who happen to do fan reviews on Youtube, not professional reviews.
As fans of the first game, they were understandably pissed when it was leaked that the main character of the first game gets killed early in the 2nd game, and then you are forced to play as his killer.
Almost everybody who read that leak was pissed about the decisions Naughty Dog made, they were no different from the rest. But just because they were initially angry at Naughty Dog after the leak, doesn't make their reviews any less valid. Having watched both reviews myself, you can tell that both played the game all the way through, so their criticism is absolutely valid. Their reviews would have been the same rather the leak happened or not, somebody isn't going to suddenly like writing that was specifically designed to be divisive, leak or no leak.
