There was a time when Brink seriously tried to tout itself as “The End of the Genre As We Know it”. Now GameTrailers has nominated it as a contender for “Most Disappointing Game of 2011”. That’s hard-earned recognition, I’d say. All of that silly marketing backfired, and don’t mind saying I’ll kick it while it’s down. Kudos to Gametrailers for admitting that it fell for the stupid hype.
Here’s the piece I wrote on it:

You can watch Gametrailers put Saints Row: The Third in its place here.
Gametrailers deserves kudos for being willing to put this game in its place, rather than struggling to defend it like Rupert Murdoch’s IGN, who predictably managed to give it an “Editor’s Choice” award, simply for pushing the agenda to discredit games as an intelligent artistic medium forward.

Just wanted to point out that I was right.
