Sometimes Action Button is a fun read. Tim Rogers is....interesting. But that seems like a parody of their own style.

The people on that site HATE a lot of the RPG number inflation, Zelda-like puzzles (obtain item, use item to open door, put it away forever), and of course vapid action games.

There's a good point somewhere in there though about games being either quickly good/bad or games having a more specific purpose. The inclusion of alchemy or weapon building in a lot of RPG's, the far too open-ended structure of say Skyrim, Final Fantasy needing 20 hours to warm up (in Tim's review, he calls the first half of the game the "tutorial" )
