    That's a weird thing with them; they are a 30 year old AAA studio with millions on budget, but are treated as indie devs for some reason.
    But if you see Konami or Nintendo screw up, you bet everyone will want their heads on spikes.

    It's a really weird mentality I do not get at all. Bethesda is all about marketing and selling shoddy products, same as the recent NMS. But whereas games journalists everywhere are mocking NMS and talking about it, Bethesda gets a free pass EVERY TIME.

    Hey, remember all the shit thrown at New Vegas at launch? Bugs, errors, etc, revised by the Bethesda testers and the result of 18 months of development.
    How odd that Falluto 4, after 7 YEARS is just regarded as "oh ol' goofy Bethesda, we love you anyway"

    The thing is, Game Journalists often don't particualarly care about the games they are rating, they just want to get it over with so they can rate the next game. User Ratings tend to be from those who want to rate it, so feel strongly one way or another.

    That's why I always trust users first.

    Still, that's an attitude players take too. To not mention Youtubers

    It's not just reviews though. It's subsequent articles. There are articles everywhere about some NMS. I get that NMS is news right now but it still feels like they're deliberately ignoring the bad reviews of Fallout 4 DLCs. "Nuka World has come out to a mixed response". That is news. But instead all we get from journalists is "Top 10 Things to do in Bethesda's new Nuka World."
