Review bombing is very prevalent in game stores these days, especially Steam. The games store has turned into a cesspool of negativity and hate as of late, with the slightest of bad news will cause them to ‘review bomb’ games. The practice has been in effect for awhile now, but ever since the Epic Game Store has come, more and more games are getting bombed. The phenomenon came about because the publisher, 2K Games decided to give exclusive rights of Borderlands 3 to the Epic Games Store. This left Steam users raging, and proceeded to bombard Borderlands 2 on Steam, with negative reviews.
To counteract this practice, Steam have come up with a filter called “Off Topic Review Activity”. People aren’t actually reviewing the game based on the game, but rather on ‘other’ aspects. Check out some of what people are saying above. It doesn’t make sense to me, especially when the game is a good game. Y’all salty just salty as hell. It’s these kinds of practices and people that give gamers and gaming a bad name. Maybe just make an Epic Games store account? What’s one more launcher right?
Also, Epic Games gives the developer a bigger cut than Steam does, so it’s better for the game. You actually get to support the GAME rather than giving Steam all your money. Maybe consider things like that before trying to ruin someone’s livelihood.
