The Armchair Empire Infinite - Battlefield 4 (PC) Pre-Review Thoughts.
Is it any wonder that video game journalists are, almost without exception, viewed as having all the critical and mental acuity of a paper bag full of dead goldfish? How can a game that has such a strong multiplayer focus, where strategies, exploits, etc. that sometimes don't float to the surface until months after a launch, be summarily reviewed within days of the game's release? It's disingenuous at best and completely dishonest at worst to even suggest that all the nuance and strategy can be parsed out in a matter of days by a reviewer. Either option doesn't do much to create any level of trust between reader and writer, that's for certain, especially if said reader hasn't been able to reliably play the game.

True PC Gaming - The Steam Monopoly.
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
