GamingThread TPC: Pokémon Sword & Shield has sold through 6M copies (2M in Japan alone). It's the fastest selling Nintendo Switch software ever. [SEE STAFF POST]

Cheerleading the success of what is, objectively, a very low effort product is really problematic. It might be a fun low effort product. It might sell well as a low effort product. But it is still a low effort product.As opposed to being angry at those pointing out clear deficiencies in said game? Because ultimately that's what all of these posts are about "it sold well and I like it therefore you're wrong to criticise this game". Problem being the criticism of Sword and Shield is totally fair whether you emotionally like it or not. The criticism of GameFreak, especially for lying to the public, is also totally fair whether you emotionally like it or not. Feel free to buy the game. Feel free to enjoy the game. But that doesn't make any of the criticism of it any less valid.
