    The mob isn't deciding anything when a product receives a large influx of positive or negative reports/thumbs/reviews. It is a realtime window into additional information relevant to many other customers.

    I've been on the receiving end of review bombing that sucked a lot because it had nothing to do with the work we did. However their sentiment was correct and the people who were responsible for it were motivated to put in the work to make it right. Under the Epic approach, they would have simply disabled reviews.

    It's by far one of the most effective mechanisms customers have to communicate with each other. It goes both ways, products get massive influxes of positive reviews because people want to show their support for something a company does that goes above and beyond the precise exact specifications of the product itself. That happens just as much. It's why Valve's approach is good. For most people who don't even know the feature got added they'll never know (but they also likely aren't reading reviews in the first place), and for others like me who want to know what the folks I'm spending money on are up to today... I get access to that information.

    Steam has successfully applied the anti review bombing system to the Borderlands games. Their ratings have returned to normal.

    Sorta. This is what I see...

    ...and why I'm ok with Valve's approach currently (vs Epic's) because as a customer I can still be alerted ahead of time to any developer/publisher shenanigans I may or may not want to support depending on the context.

    So, Randy has officially NO reason to bitch about anything.

    The industry is too far corroded for blue checkmark devs to stop bitching so long as gamers continue to not behave and keep somehow bizarrely having personalities that come up with ways to game whatever systems the industry comes up with in order to provide tangible feedback that blue checkmarks will actually notice. Going at the rock star ego (via public product perception) is one of the better ways to reach meaningful swaths of this cancer infested chinese and western central bank spend it as fast as you get it MMT inflation sustained bloated zombie of an industry.

    I didn't realize Lowtax had reviewed it...

    Regardless, this game was apparently made by all females, which is nice because it proves gender equality exists and women are just as capable as men at creating utter garbage games. Now I don't want to be too harsh reviewing this game, because it could've potentially been a wonderful, award-winning game if only they changed every aspect of it and had another company develop it and the game was the complete polar opposite of what it is now.

    His review brought me damn close to buying it so I could finally see it first hand for myself. Then I remembered all the technical problems reported and satisfied myself with a quick refresher via video.
