EA on Bioware employee's review

Reviewed own game on Metacritic

Yesterday, on the vast network known as the Internet, a picture posted on Reddit showed how a user had tracked a 10/10 review of Dragon Age II on Metacritic to an employee of Bioware. Some people were upset, while others simply shrugged at it. Kotaku, on the other hand, didn't settle there and simply asked EA about the whole thing.

"Of course the people who make the game vote for their own game. That's how it works in the Oscars, that's how it works in the Grammy's and why I'm betting that Barack Obama voted for himself in the last election," a senior public relations manager answered.

If you're upset, rest assured that the Bioware employee in question probably got a slap on the wrist (and was told to cover his tracks better next time).
