I do think you have a point here. Without going into conspiracy theories, (which even the CIA deride so they can’t be):), negativity is a classic way to get some attention.
However I think many journalists and gamers have high expectation of ps exclusives to offer unique experiences. I do think DG does just that but that’s not the point. Why don’t they come up with say, ‘RPG fatigue’ or ‘Dark soulesque’ fatigue, fighting fatigue, or for other platform FPS fatigue or Racing fatigue etc?
After all there aren’t as many zombie games on ps as on other platforms but plenty of RPG or dark soul or fighting type of games.
