Is there something we can do about the people who insist on reviewing the developer's political opinions rather than the actual game? (Besides marking it "not helpful.") It's annoying to see people giving the game low marks because they support Anita Sarkeesian, rather than because the game itself deserves low marks.

I haven't played the game and have no opinions about it one way or another. I just don't want to see GOG reviews get overtaken by Gamergaters.
I think I clicked report on one of them, but the report link disappears after you review a review. I noticed the same thing and it annoyed me too. The game's not even made by Anita, it merely refers to her. I did have a laugh at one of the reviews that manages to claim "politics and games don't mix" with a completely straight face, not comprehending the irony that he's also mixing politics and games by writing a "review" that tells the reader absolutely nothing except the fact the writer is a GG-er.

And that's not even getting into the fact that, according to the movement itself at least, "#gamergate" was supposed to be partially about "improving the ethical standards of video game journalism by opposing social criticism in video game reviews". And I suppose the best way to improve ethical standards of video game reviews is by posting reviews that are 100% about social criticism and not even about the game itself? *headdesk* Hate truly blinds people to irony.

Anyway, I don't think there's a way to actually stop the trend. Someone posted a "don't buy this game because (insert false rumor)" in the review sections of the various Ys games due to believing a false rumor and those "reviews" are still there, despite having been reported and despite the community actually educating the person who wrote them, who went on to say he'd contact GOG to have them removed.

Best thing you can do against immature fake reviews like those are down-voting them all and convincing others to down-vote them as well while also upvoting each review that's actually a review. It's not a perfect solution, but at least it quickly sends the dumb reviews to the bottom of the barrel where they belong.

Just ignore the reviews posted here, rule of thumb. :P
