Vidya critics get paid off and push agendas HARD. Literal paid shills with no integrity at all.
It's gotten so bad that games can receive a score of 9/10 and be called unplayable in the same breath (happened with final fantasy xiii), because the average score has gotten so stupidly high as a result of said payoffs. And they still often reccomend you to pick up games they call unplayable, because they're hot right now and etc.
Nothing in the journalistic world is worse than that.
Vidya "journalism" is nothing more than an extension of ad campaigns, confused about what it is as an industry, constantly fumbling and fucking up.
If cartoon critics are worse than that, then your point is totally valid.
