Bethesda has recently announced it's continuation of a policy of giving game journalists review codes 1 day before release. As quoted from their Official Announcement: "While we will continue to work with media, streamers, and YouTubers to support their coverage – both before and after release – we want everyone, including those in the media, to experience our games at the same time" Of course, giving out codes is not something Bethesda has to do, but is this something that will go against them in the long run? If the game itself takes at least a day to play, there will be a significant lack of information on a game. On the flip side, outdated reviews may contain things broken before full release, which may act as a deterrent against getting a game that would be patched on release. Which stance are you on? Should review copies be given out way before a game is released so the public has a full look at the game they want before laying down the dollar? Or should the experience of a new game be shared without full prior information so that everyone is on a level playing field?
