Likewise if the game has a been made with a big budget or looks and feels like a game of today it is automatically criticized for no being a proper RPG, again no matter how great the game may be. (e.g. DA:O winner of the most disappointing game of the year here at the Watch).
Well said, and I'm sorry to say that I have to agree - at least to a certain point. I mean, there are *a lot* of sensible people here at the Watch, and it's still my favourite site on the net, but that DA:O was voted "most disappointing game" on a site like this… that's both silly and a bit sad IMO.
