Yesterday, Polygon posted their review for the new game Dragon’s Crown which was getting attention because of the exaggerated character designs of the female characters. The comment thread blew up with people decrying the low review score that they perceived to be for reasons of sexism.

I could sort of understand if the game developers or someone with a personal stake in the game got upset, but these are just people who are either going to buy the game or aren’t. The game otherwise got very good reviews with a few exceptions.

I saw a few sentiments that reviews should not contain opinions. This is just patently absurd. A review with no opinion is a bulletpoint list of features.

I think these people need to realize that getting upset over someone not liking what you like is a surefire way to be unhappy the rest of your life.
