In general and most of the time I would agree that reviews should try to ignore extraneous factors as much as possible. But there are exceptions and to be fair, this was not by any means the only site that felt a need to acknowledge and take at least a passing stance on some of the external events surrounding the MEA launch simply because it was so loud and widespread that to simply ignore it would have seemed like a deliberate omission of related material.MadFrenchie said:Not sure I agree it needed to be addressed in the review. The review should solely focus on the content quality of the game itself.
Any assessment of the whackos was deserving of and appropriately addressed in an opinion piece centered around that issue in context with other, similar issues that have occurred within the genre. Including it in the review colors the review more than the whackos, at least reference the reader of this review, who may or may not have intimate knowledge of the controversy.
I don't disagree the hate has been over the top from some folks, and the misogyny is straight retarded.. But this isn't the first AAA game to come out with such surprisingly obvious quality issues. I would surmise some of the hate MEA got is a residual hate that's been building among the gamer population (see Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed, heck even Kane and Lynch way back when).
