The very popular Total Biscuit YouTube channel did a negative review of Guise of the Wolf (as did almost everyone else). Fun Creators filed a takedown on the video, claiming copyright, then denied it. From there things got dumber. Here's an object lesson.
Diablo III's launch is breathtaking in its lack of either concern or competence (your pick).
The Breakout genre has a fundamental problem with lack of player agency causing long stretches of player boredom and frustration. Shatter solved this problem - please take heed if you're going to make a new Breakout game.
Players and reviewers who really hate Lord of the Rings: War in the North don't seem to realize there's a dodge button. This is not their fault.
Sometimes you play a game that's a revelation. 'Tiny Wings' was like that for one touch gaming. 'Bastion' is that game for audio.
There was one single, easy thing Epic Mickey could have done to make it a much better game, make players much happier, and boost metacritic scores 10-20 points: minimizing the penalty for death.

Simon, I admire this level of analysis thumbs up , but believe that attributing this level of cold hard rationality to either consumers or producers is just not reality. You do mention this possibility.

Ah yes, now that you mention it, the columns are identifiable as fighty, sneaky, magicky, and now churchy. Thank you

This is really nice to hear - I played this a lot more than Diablo III, and was pleasantly surprised at how little it abused the player. It was very generous, so I sent a bit of money their way, but was worried about whether a non-abusive model could generate ...
