Jim Sterling gave Zelda an 8, which is a top score, and his site was hacked several times, his youtube channel was falsely flagged for pornographic content, he had hundreds of death threats and somebody was trying to doxx his missus and her kid. Over an 8/10. The repeated justification for all this was because the score dragged down the BOTW’s metacritic average.
Red Letter Media did a retrospective of the Sonic games and overall were pretty down on them. A bunch of fanbois tried to shut down their patreon, sent them death threats, posted hundreds of “response” videos, and etc.
“Gamers” as opposed to “people who like video games” are sociopathic, entitled brats, to put it mildly.
