old-wizard.com is the worst.

by noiseredux Thu Sep 16, 2010 1:36 pm

I honestly read old-wizard.com because I hate it. I think it's one of the most poorly written, poorly researched, and idiotic sites ever. So to sum it up, I'm addicted. It's mostly a video game site, but more and more they've added music and other articles. By music, I mean Oasis. They talk about Oasis a lot. That should help you understand what a crappy site this really is. Almost everything on there site is a Top 10 or Top 100 list. Oh and also, they constantly do one of my biggest pet-peeves in video game writing: they add a "1" to the end of a title that is a first in a series. Meaning they refer to Final Fantasy as Final Fantasy 1. That's just horrible. [/rant]

Ha, it looks like one of those sham sites that uses a misspelled version of a common URL to redirect users to buyviagrapenis.com or the like.

This, of course, bodes quite well for the sites content.
The PSTV is amazing.

More like amazed. This article in particular was awesome: http://www.sonydefenseforce.com/2009/10/29/nintendo-president-we-failed-with-the-wii/

Not sure how anyone could spin Nintendo's resurgence in the last few years as a fail. These guys are pretty dedicated Sony fans.

I feel the same way about Sankaku Complex, a.k.a Sony's Whore Squad. Almost intentionally biased, poorly-written articles, and there's a lot of hentai on the site too. It really makes you feel awful when you read it, and not just for the latter reason. :?

So...yeah. Weren't these all already declared troll websites? Why not just stop worrying about their existence, stop giving them the hits, and stop talking about them so that other people don't visit their websites out of curiosity?

It's similar to how Rockstar Games intentionally courts controversy because they know it will generate discussion, which will ultimately translate to more people buying their games. Don't give in and don't buy it. Hell, forget it exists along with everyone else, and it will inevitably go away. It's as simple as that.
