This time, on “Video Game Journalists are Terrible at Their Job and Should be Fired”…
VG24/7 apologized for an error on an article posted during TGS, where they confused the recently remastered Uncharted 2: Among Thieves with the unreleased Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
In the later redacted article, “Is Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End too formulaic?” a VG24/7 writer accounts her “experience” playing an Uncharted 4 demo, when in all reality she was playing through Chapter 5 of Uncharted 2, remastered in the Nathan Drake Collection. She begins to complain about the graphics, even though it’s a PS3 game, and how it’s “not new,” even though the game was released 6 years ago. The best part is when the writer recieves her copy of the Nathan Drake Collection and asks if she wants to play the series again, even though if she did play it once before, she would know that the demo she played was Uncharted 2.
In VG24/7’s response, they apologized, but still couldn’t actually say it was 100% their fault. They blamed the fact that “it was busy,” and that the signage wasn’t in English, even though as a games journalist they should be able to tell that they’re playing one of the most critically acclaimed games of the last decade.
