Steam's review system is not always a true reflection of a gamers experience with a game. We recently saw negative Dota 2 reviews because gamers were blaming Dota 2 for killing Half Life 3.
Now gamers have recently taken to Campo Santo's walking simulator, Firewatch with a wealth of negative reviews in protest of Campo Santo's co-founder Sean Vanaman's recent Twitter remarks "We're filing a DMCA takedown of PewDiePie's Firewatch content and any future Campo Santo games."
In a recent stream of PUBG, Felix "PewDiePie" Kjellberg dropped the n-word and this clearly upset the Campo Santo co-founder. Vanaman has since encouraged other developers to do the same, which has caused the gaming community to rally behind PewDiePie.
Not every Steam review has referenced Campo Santo's DMCA takedown, with some users just blatantly criticizing the game for what made Firewatch a success. Overall, Firewatch has 86% positive status from 25,949 reviews, which is a fair reflection. However, recent reviews is rated as mixed with only 51% positive and is bound to continue to drop.
PewDiePie has since issued an apology that you can view below, it will be interesting to see what impact these recent events have for the popular streamer.
