The gaming press = a bunch of Trolls? *Update*
Many people are crying foul after seeing some of the reviews for Metroid Other M this weekend. There were many seemingly biased reviews but mainly the one from G4, saying the game is sexist and that the story ruins the experience while failing to number very much wrong with the actual game. The review and especially the video review was 17 minutes of pretty much bashing this game into the ground focusing so much on the character of Samus that the game itself got lost in the shuffle.
So my question to you guys: Is the gaming press a bunch of Trolls when it comes to anything Wii related? Do you think that people that are already biased against a game/system should be even allowed to review games for them?
This seems to happen a lot with Nintendo games from many sites. Games on PS3/Xbox 360 which have worse flaws seem to get passed over and not talked about while Wii games get bashed for not only the graphics (obviously) but for everything else they can think of. For me, I know this kind of thing has been happening since the end of the SNES era, but for a while I thought these people were starting to be more fair but I guess I could be wrong after seeing tripe like that.
*Update* Here is the review being talked about:
