My respect for Game Informer just went up!

I just received the January Issue of GI. Often, I down this magazine and the only reason I really subscrie to it is that I get discounts at GameStop. I opened this issue up to the feedback section and saw this in response to someone complimenting one of their reviews.

"While we're glad you found our review informative, it's not more "correct" than anyone else's critique of the game. Even if you agree with our opinions, you shouldn't mistake them as universal truths - a mistake readers often make while berating our RE6 review for being both too high and too low. Ultimately, everyone needs to accept the fact that opinions differ - until the day we craft a retort capable of setting trolls on fire just by reading it, that is. Speaking of..."

They then went on to completely own someone who was being a MEdal of Honor fanboy.

I've been saying this for eyars, and people won't listen. Maybe now that GI has, someone will.

Reviews are opinions. Opinions that are either seen by few (like here) or seen by many(IGN/GI/ect.)

People think because reviews are seen by many must mean they are 100% truth and factual. I think that's where people get off track. That's why when i write reviews or tell people about games, I try and keep it as honest and to the point as possible.

Zeedief is an unknown quantity at this point

^ I totally agree. But it is true that reviews are just opinion-based.
