Because (perhaps on a subconscious level) the purpose of such conversations is mostly about reaffirming one's personal beliefs. You state what you believe, other people have other opinions, you counter that with your perspective and then go home feeling that what you believe is the whole truth and that others just can't or won't understand.
I have discussed these things plenty of times both online and offline. It makes little difference whether I discuss these matters face-to-face or whether I discuss them on the Web.
And furthermore I think that I have thoroughly explained myself and my sense pretty well here as it is.
"We aren't promoting anything, we are just providing a platform."
Providing a platform is promotion though.
If you honestly think modern games are done better then you have no clue what you are talking about.
By stating the games you like, you show your (terrible) tastes in gaming. If you'd said 'Last of Us' instead of Tomb Raider 2013 then I could've taken you more seriously. If a string of orgasm-sounds from a woman being in pain/tortured and a subsequent series of QTEs and FarCry-knockoff gameplay is what appeals to you then have at it.
I can already tell this thread might become hard to keep up with.

I agree with this. Nintendo has been riding the exact same handful of franchises for 30+ years. It's almost embarrassing. There's only so many times you can repackage Mario or Zelda before it gets tired... and I think most people have hit that point.
And let's not kid ourselves by saying that game reviews are trustworthy.Reviews are perfectly fine if one is an intelligent human being that can read and understand that different people have different point of views. The only reviews that are untrustworthy are exclusive reviews that come out while everyone else is still embargoed.
