  1. This is an interesting article, and while I do enjoy reading Cracked they are mainly known for comedy. The numbered list they use does not provide many concrete examples to back their reasoning. I will say it doesn’t seem fair that well-known game series get reviewed better based on the publisher, but I disagree with many of the other points they raise.
