Pretty much the exact same reply, because asking for unbiased reviews in the same way people are asking for objective reviews is still the same thing. I don't want unbiased reviewers, I want reviewers that share my biases so I know that our opinions on games, movies, books, etc., are more likely to align and give me an accurate impression on whether I will like that particular piece of media or not. I also want reviewers who don't share my biases so I can know what other viewpoints are out there, and whether or not they actively engage or challenge my own view points. If a reviewer is biased in a way that doesn't interest me, then I am ok with not consuming that reviewers content.runic knight said:The problem is that while people say "objective" most tend to mean "unbiased". Many people want a more unbiased review (seeing objectivity as a means to obtain it) and don't want to listen to a personal political ideological purity test applied to the product. But I suppose trying to argue against unbiased reviews would be very silly. Or might result in the exact same reply, who knows.
I want as many diverse viewpoints as I can get, I don't care if the whole review is just the author deconstructing the story from an objectivist view point and ignores gameplay and graphics entirely, that's not what I want out of a review, and I likely would never read such a review, but I want it to exist. You can call a reviewer shitty, or even criticize their methods and reasoning, but I take issue when people come along and insist that displaying these biases is somehow a breach in ethical behavior, and that such biases should be forcibly eliminated from the medium through boycotts or organized consumer pressure, that is not what I want to see from the industry.
