You mean to say there are millions out there who would like to be idolized, have the lives of kings, and be above the law. Just by acting, singing or entertaining. Instead of devoting their lives on a field working towards the betterment of humanity just die in obscurity with just a few people remembering who they were and what they accomplished, like most scientist do?
Holy shit dude! you just blew my mind. I feel so bad for those spoor singers, actors, and entertainers who threw their future away trying to win the modern-aristocracy lottery and are now pretty much the dead weight of humanity.
Its a real tragedy.

When reviews are bought and sold- monetarily, through favors, or through connections- that impacts the whole of the industry and what will and will not get made. The indie market is, to an extent, safer from this than others, and there will always be someone out there who is willing to tell the industry to go fuck itself, but this severely restricts the budget and awareness available, and even they can be ruined or greenlit on the word of an influential magazine or writer.
This, of course, is why Zoe Quinn's alleged actions revolving around her game "Depression Quest" was the spark that lit the powder keg. As to why we're still going on about this, it's because it's still a problem, and how the seeming majority of journalists' have handled this issue has not eased tensions in the slightest.

Wouldn't things like E3 and Gamespot/IGN have vastly more influence than stupid shit like Kotaku and whatnot? I haven't once gone to Kotaku for information on a game. Whenever I search for reviews/information it's always either popular youtubers, Gamespot/IGN, or just the game's dedicated webpage itself that comes up. I still don't understand how pissy little sites like the ones being argued about can have any sort of recognisable impact.

Even those aware of the possibility for skewed facts and want to compare sources will generally compare between multiple known sites, and the big names have a great deal of awareness. Comparing stories is a good habit to be in, of course, but it's useless when the big namers are ALL SAYING THE SAME THING, because they've all been bought (again, monetarily, through favors, through connections, or through bias).
Worse, when the small guys DO break the mold and give a different viewpoint, they have to get over the initial rejection by readers who are less inclined to believe the small guy because they're perceived as less reliable. That is why such a stance is being taken against corruption in games journalism.
I agree that Gamespot/IGN have a great deal of influence on their own, but E3 is a press-only event. The public is not allowed to attend, and can only get their E3 news second-hand, filtered through whatever site they visit. The journalists writing about the games will already be biased toward them, having just gone through a multi-day expo of booth babes, free handouts, and empty promises. It is extremely rare that a NEGATIVE review comes out of E3, and all of this falls back to my points above.

Actually these people are saying the same thing partly because they all agreed to say the same thing before hand. I was shocked myself. Someone should get this to the front page but I'm not good enough of a poster to do that.

No. It's a hobby for some, a passion for others, a career for others still.
People are upset because others are trying to tell them what they enjoy. What they SHOULD enjoy.
The fact that we care about something others see as so minute doesn't change the fact that we're invested in this hobby, passion, career.
And you shouldn't shame people over it.
