It seems today to get the game well know out there the publisher need to stuff money into igns pockets to have it featured in news articles and headlines, or even have a "two World" Tuesday for weekly publicity. And for games which publishers don't have teh money to buy off ign, ign gives them a bad rating. case and point: Hour of Victory, most people say its a good game. Ign didn't mention the game untill maybe a week before luanch and then gives it a 5.7 though backhurner headline. Also: super hyped games will no doubt get a good score, even if the games PURELY SUCKS, because how can ign say no after the publisher stuff it full of money?
