Funny how Destructoid likes to get out of the norm on many issues for the hell of it. The HL2 framerate debacle is another instance; IGN said the same thing as 1up! Check this out:
Maybe its just me, but I don't think Gamespot and IGN are in cahoots... hmmm.
In retrospect, some of my words were austere in the last blog. My veiled message is Destructoid remains the best concerning industry news; however, they exacerbate the situation concerning political, journalistic, and extraneous stories. For example, who cares if 1up put Kane & Lynch in the best action game category? Readers should have the choice to vote from games that are deemed action, no matter how flawed it is. A plethora of other mediocre games are on this list as well (Syphon Filter and Crackdown as prime examples). Destructoid is also in competition with sites like these, but that does not mean one should belittle any chance possible. Many advertisers are game publishers, but that doesnít mean establishments like EGM, 1up, or the former Gamespot(when Kasavin and crew were there) will curb their reviews . To bring up past debacles, Kane and Lynch is a 6.0 on Gamespot! Some may be shocked, but there are advertisements on Destructoid as well! One can only imagine Naruto not receiving a 10, but maybe thatís just me. I know they are not going to curb their review score; itís just an extra way to advertise the game to a larger audience. One final note to everyone as well: videogames are not indy by any means.
