Fallout 4 Review Fallout

There's been a lot of outcry about the recent launch of the Creation Club for Fallout 4, reviving the issue of paid modifications, in spite of Bethesda's assertion that this is not the case. How bad is the fallout? The game's overall review rating is "mostly positive" based on 65,542 reviews, but the recent reviews rating is "overwhelmingly negative," based on 6,700+ reviews, more than 10% of the total. This helps explain Steam's new plan for displaying review results, which is to help understand situations where games are review-bombed in this manner. Thanks Acleacius.

That's always been the purpose of reading reviews, you occasionally have to get off your ass and do some research. Steam has made it easier by doing some of the research in advance.

Yeah, no? The point of a review is to help me decide if I want to buy something. Showing me a graph that tells me "Hey, for some reason there's now some negative stuff about this game that's causing negative reviews" without any kind of context whatsoever is about as useful as a tit on a wallet.

But hey, at least all Valve had to do was put in 20 lines of code and they were done. So thank God they were spared all that work other actual solutions might have entailed.

At the very least, they could notice something is getting review bombed, and put a little link in the review section that says "This game is getting mostly negative reviews because of {LINK}." But again, that would cause someone to have to wheel his desk over and do something other than making hats.
So you're saying you would trust Valves reasoning for the dips or rises instead of reading the actual reviews themselves.

What you bring up has it's pros and cons. Entitled whiny review bombers have short memory's and quickly move on to the next big thing to get "upset" about. But not if the review Graph keeps reminding them of some perceived slight, it will never go away and the reviews will be worth less than they already are. IMHO
