The reasons for this are two-fold, firstly it will be extremely entertaining reading the comments section of the review regardless of what score he eventually gives it.
Secondly, if the score happens to deviate from the Metacritic rating in any way/shape/form, it will immediately increase traffic and comments on Gamespot exponentially, meaning that all of our favourite reviewers (Tom, Carolyn, Kevin, Mark etc.) and our favourite staff members (Johnny, Danny, Cam, Seb et al), will be able to have pay increases and bonuses for Christmas.

Please make Tom Mc Shea review GTAV, it is the only right, sane and honourable thing to do. With this, we will strike a victory for game reviewing. I am not sure how, but if you think about it long enough, I am sure you'll come to the same conclusion. If thinking doesn't work, drinking might. Either way, it needs to happen.
