    Want to protest the way a new game is being sold? Fine. But don't do it by tarnishing the reputation of its predecessors.
    Last week, publisher Deep Silver announced that Metro Exodus, the long-awaited sequel to the post-nuclear action horror games Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light, would be releasing exclusively on the Epic Games Store, and that it's planned to remain that way for a full year. Preorders already done through Steam are going to be honored, but for the foreseeable future, the game is going to be absent from Valve's service.
    This news came mere weeks prior to Exodus's expected February 15 launch, and the response from fans was, justifiably, an angry one. After all, Metro Exodus has been advertised on Steam for months, which was a clear signal to people that it would launch there. Also, the Epic Games Store is devoid of features at the moment, including basic things like regional pricing and screenshot capturing, among others. In addition, there are valid reasons to be concerned about how secure Epic Games-designed software is. Earlier this month, an exploit in Fortnite was discovered that left millions of accounts at risk, and Epic Games is partially owned by Tencent, a Chinese internet company that has faced controversy surrounding user privacy before. It's easy to see why PC players aren't happy.
    Regardless of how justified the disdain for the Epic Games Store is, though, players have taken it too far by flooding Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light with negative reviews, also known as "review bombing." Here's why review bombing Metro Exodus's predecessors is immature and pointless.
