I feel that gamers are unable to fairly assess publishers without the fog of Brand Loyalty.
Many believe that they are (unbiased, that is). Until you can point out their consistent posting history as a fanboy or hater.
It actually is difficult to dispel the minmaxer charm. Once you're exposed, it may be as persistent as herpes.
