Dragon Age II Metacritic User Reviews Padded By BioWare Employees
Yet more evidence that applying a number score to a work of art, be it a movie, a novel, or a video game, is a complete waste of everyone's time. Well, unless you're the publisher of that work of art, or otherwise stand to benefit from being able to say, ?The critics agree: it's a ten out of ten!? People associated with BioWare have been caught (if ?caught? is the right word) giving Dragon Age II user scores of 10/10 at Metacritic. I suppose this isn't as serious as when Belkin was caught paying people to give its products good Amazon reviews, but it something about it doesn't sit right.
