A red herring is an argument that that is irrelevant to the point being made. See, I did not say or imply that criticism is not valuable. By making an argument defending the value of criticism, when no one ever questioned it, you introduced an irrelevant argument to the discussion, a red herring.You mean it is an argument you have no rebuke for.This argument is a red herring.Imagine if Star Wars: Battlefront 2 were not critisized. And it launched with all those pay-walls and bugs.You're really only proving my point.The very same defensive talking points were used in forums for games like Anthem, Fallout 76, Battlefield V and so on.
Sometimes there is no excuses to defend a product and sometimes criticism is needed. Otherwise quality is not produced.
