    You Spent Over $43 Billion on Video Games in 2018


    According to The NPD Group, consumers spent over $43 billion on video games throughout 2018. That marks an 18% increase over 2017 spending. There are a couple of important notes about this.

  • Valve's Fix for Combating Review Bombing is a Graph

    Valve's Fix for Combating Review Bombing is a Graph

    Review bombing is when a bunch of Steam users get together in an effort to drastically raise or drastically lower the user scores for a game. It's usually the case that a developer or publisher has done something that people don't agree with so they "get back" at them by submitting a bunch of negative reviews. Those mass spammed negative reviews are then upvoted in a mass circle jerk while any positive reviews are mass downvoted. This is all done in an effort to... do... something? I guess their end goal is just to lower a game's overall user score enough that it may dissuade people from buying it in the future. I mean, it worked out well for Grand Theft Auto V a few months ago. It worked out so well...
