I figured there might've been more to it seeing as how his railings on VIII are unsubstantiated most of the time (I've played that one far more often than X so I can actually 'spot' the false complaints). Honestly I'm more willing to take your word on it; to which point I'd have to agree Yuna is a fairly decent example of a female protagonist if you take X on its own without knowledge of its squeal.
(I like some of the guy's reviews. No opinion on the man himself. I'm steering far clear of that particular typhoon of defecation.)
