Why do you care?
I see a lot of people claiming this isn't a game or games like this are ruining Steam and my quetion to you is this. Why do you care? Why do you care if someone you don't know buys it or that it got showered with awards?

Does it really effect you in anyway, shape, and/or form if this is labled a game? Does it effect you that it won awards? Does it effect you if someone you know or don't know buys this? Hint: It doesn't. You don't have to like the game but insulting peoiple because thety bought and liked the game is just low.

People are mad because they expected a 10/10 game because of ridiculous reviews from ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ game journalists that praise the game as the second coming of Jesus, but instead got a 2-hour 'game' with a mediocre story that cost 20 dollars.

If it weren't so overhyped and had like, a 6/10, nobody would care, but gaming journalists felt the need to pander to SJW's. Gaming journalism is dead.

Because in 2014 people only read review scores without actually reading reviews to see the context of the score, then complain with their illiterate ramblings because they bought something they didn't understand. In a time when you can go on Youtube and see someone play any game in their entirety, people have no excuse to blame press for their ignorance.

Then please be mad at the journalists or just choose a reviewer whose tase is much better aligned with yours. This is not the fault of the game.

Well, Aicanaro's answer is honest, though. Some people think this game isn't as good as some other people said it was, and they perceive an injustice (which one? to whom?) and they get upset about it.

What I don't believe is that even though he writes, "Gaming journalism is dead", he'll stop reading what gaming journalists write.
(Gaming journalism has rarely been motivating me to try out a game, but when it did, I generally didn't regret it. I don't think it's dead.)

All the big gaming journalism sites like Gamespot and IGN are paid for good reviews, other lesser sites like Kotaku are SJW whining platforms about how the latest game doesn't have a black transgender kid with autism.

I understand that, but that still isn't the game's fault.

You didn't like the story? Fine.

You think the game is too short for its price? Alright.

Didn't like the lack of interactivity and player influence on the story's progression? You're welcome.

Those are all valid complaints to make. Criticizing the game simply because you disagree with other people's opinions is not.

This. I hate this ♥♥♥♥ing game.

The Escapist is pretty good for reviews.

It's ok to not like this game, that's not a matter of smartness. To buy this game and not like it for reasons mentioned in most reviews, and then to whine about it on the forums is not.

I've never gotten on you about actually liking it or disliking it, what bothers me is the incessant whining.

I don't care that you hate this game. I just find it pathetic that you want to blame everyone but yourself when it is so easy to find all the information you need about a game before buying it.
