can be a fickle bunch. While positivity is good and all, nothing is
more fun than tearing a game to shreds and with the Internet being
what it is, we can – and do – make sure that everyone knows about
it. After all, with hype comes expectation and if that expectation is
not met Hell quickly follows.
that negativity is warranted. The gaming landscape is filled with
enough empty promises, half-baked, lazy attempts and downright broken
cash-grabs that being a smidge jaded can keep our hard-earned money
in our wallets and encourage the greedy, incompetent or criminal to
rethink their shady practices.
there are times when the negativity gets out of hand. This is where
things get ugly, where a poor previous outing creates near
insurmountable scepticism, a bad screenshot or two overpowers all the
good that comes after, and a shaky release leads to a storm of
furious reviews. And so, many a great game has died a gruesome death,
or simply been ignored, left to languish until some brave soul gave
it a second glance.
we’re taking that second glance. These are titles that fell afoul
of the Internet for less than valid reasons and were denied sequels,
acclaim and success because of it. So, let’s chuck that negativity,
grab a cup of tea, warm our crotchety old hearts, and show some love
to games that truly deserve it.
