And Now, Some Half-Assed Video Game Reviews

WarioLet's be honest: reviewing a video game is hard work.  No, wait, check that: writing a video game review is hard work.  Sometimes the writing and reviewing process is such a massive, soul-crushing undertaking that the end result is... oh, how to put this delicately... half-assed.  Over on Twitter, a bunch of folks are tweeting their favorite hypothetical half-assed review snippets.  Here's a sample:
