Excellent point. The higher the review scores go, the more worthless they become. PR folks couldn't give two shits about game criticism. To them, game reviews are tools to market their games. Once game reviews become worthless, they'll just move onto another platform to promote their games. Game journalists and writers need to wake up and forget about the short term gains with publishers before game reviews lose all value and then they lose an entire platform of games writing.
