21JaxonHSun 2nd Sep 2018 @FaeKnight Ok, reviewers do not get paid for reviews. They just don't. It's been confirmed it doesn't happen, time and time again, and any reviewer accepting a bribe in exchange for a score would be ostracized 10x more than Philip Muicin for plagiarism. It just doesn't happen, and even if it ever did happen it would be an isolated event. Not a systemic issue. If anyone is likely to be influenced by outside sources, it would be the "actual gamers" on YouTube where the developers send them free stuff and they feel guilty about it and give the game a slightly higher score as a result. You can't just make accusations of bribery because you don't like the outcome of reviews. PLAYING NS: Zombie Army 4, Splatoon 2 STEAM: XSX: PS5: Jesus is Lord.
