Now to be fair, new games doesn't have walkthroughs to help them out.


Though in terms of the new Spongebob one, yeah... There's no excuse.

They weren't bullied enough as kids to pursue better hobbies so they make a living out of something they shouldn't have any business with.

I don't think bullying has any relevance, unless they're hardcore FIFA players.


I am not really a game "journalist", but a curator. I have been reviewing games for like 2 years already and I think I know the problem with them.

Video game journalists don't pay for their games, they get free copies. They don't feel like they worked for their games anymore, so they stop caring about them. Every copy sent to them could get accepted at first glance because it looks cool, but they get tired from the moment they open the game. I bet they hate their job too, because they now HAVE to play and review it unlike the moment they started when they did it for fun.


I kinda have it too, but with very shitty asset flips. I shitlist all the low effort garbageware and all our 34000 followers get to see it.


If I were smart enough at 9 I would've made a NG account instead of Facebook. I've used this site for almost a decade, but my stupidness only registered during the pandemic.

They rush through the games like idiots because they're more concerned in being the first to pump out a review.


They're probably not even "gamers" to begin with, but just idiots with a journalism degree who review games because it's guaranteed clicks.

Gaming journalists are the bottom 10% of journalism school. That’s the best explanation I have found.


Film critics have a harder job, because there is a lot to art that you need to describe to an audience that may or may not understand what “foil” means, for example.


Gaming though? You find better reviews written on steam than by people paid to give them


why do I need a signature or pfp? Just look at my words instead

The words "Gaming" and "Journalist" together in the same sentence already got me saying "What was it this time?".

Ahahaha holy fuck. I'm at the puzzle the one idiot reviewer wrote about and it really is frustrating, just not for the reasons he specified.


You're escorting a ball down a track to unlock a collectible and you need to use the bubble bowl attack to move hazards out of the way. The ball moves so agonizingly slowly down the track that the hazards will tend to reset while the ball is crossing over them, so you need to take into account the ball's slow rolling speed, the hazards' slowly moving out of the way as well as the window of time before it resets, and on top of all that you still have to take Spongebob's wind-up animation and the chance of the bubble projectile missing the target due to bumping into some invisible geometry causing it to fling into space.


It's very obvious at times that this is a remake of a ~20 year-old game. There are a few other really annoying puzzles in here, like a platforming challenge that requires Patrick to complete it but you can still attempt it as Spongebob, so the first few failed tries you probably won't immediately realize what it is you're doing wrong. There's nothing that'd make the game worthy of a 2 though. There's enough easy-to-obtain spatulas that you can just skip the more annoying puzzles. I don't know how the reviewer was having trouble standing on a switch and using the bubble bowl at the same time unless he was playing bad on purpose to make the game look worse.

Vidya has been all the rage for a long time now, so every hack that couldn't cut it as a real journalist decided to become a "video game journalist" and the results show.

Every now and then, I'll find a review for a game where the reviewer talks about how they didn't like a certain aspect of a game, and they have a gameplay video with it... and they FUCKING SUCK at the game. They have no idea how that game works, don't care to learn, and are obviously rushing.


Anyway, proudly presented video evidence like this makes it easy to see when gaming journalists are just full of shit and suck cock.
