IGN bashes Soul Sacrifice for not being “arcadey”… begs the question why people visit that site anymore

In the usual perpetuation of media trash that spews from IGN (and other mainstream gaming sites) is yet another article bashing a quality title for not being easy enough. Rather than praising the title for it’s qualities, they made a whole video complaining about how Soul Sacrifice is not an easy enough game to play. They described it as having a “steep learning curve” and not being “arcadey”. By their standards, these are reasons why Soul Sacrifice shouldn’t be the Playstation Vita’s killer app. I struggle to find the purpose of this IGN piece guessing that it could only be for controversy or that they really are shitty gamers. Trust me, as a gamer, I appreciate the distribution of honest information about video games; on the other hand it’s tiring to see worthless commentary that inaccurately influences gamers and negatively effects high quality, original titles. I guess it’s just another example of major gaming sites scattering for content and just resorting to title bashing which gains a lot of comments consequently boosting their site traffic.
