Yea good point. I'm just saying in my opinion. Plus not everyone is the same way as you, you may have people that don't care and people that do, so I think when you write a review it needs to appeal to different readers.

Again, I disagree. You should be aiming for one or two target demographics. I would expect a site like EuroGamer to mention this type of thing as they are generally targeting a more 'hardcore' audience whereas Gamespot is more of a younger/teen who probably could care less.

Trying to appeal to different audiences is pretty much a guaranteed way of not pleasing any.

Can you imagine a chef trying to make a menu that appeals both to high class diners and the average person on the street?
