RPGFan News - November Editorial: The How and Why of My Reviews
"Because it [a video game] objectively fails, though, doesn't mean it can't be fun. I think that's where game reviews inherently fail from many outlets: they don't identify the market for whom a game will be fun, the market who will love them."
