* Due to the negative feedback about the fourth edition of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', many gamers have an utterly unhealthy love of ''TabletopGames/{{Pathfinder}}'' as it's an outgrowth of the game's third edition (which, ironically, also had a loudly negative reception and people rushing back to second edition). This coupled up with fourth edition being marketed aggressively towards new players (to the point of [[WeDontSuckAnymore actively insulting]] the previous editions and those that enjoyed
them), with Wizards of the Coast supporting game shops to run "Encounter" events to show off 4E, to result in a lot of new gamers praising Pathfinder to death in order to agree with older gamers rather than trying it and seeing if they liked it first.

* After ''Film/SuicideSquad'' received mostly negative reviews, a petition[[https://www.change.org/p/don-t-listen-to-film-criticism]] was creating asking Rotten Tomatoes to be shut down. Note that over 18,000 people signed it ''before'' the movie was actually released, meaning that thousands of people assumed the criticism was unfair, without actually watching the movie.

* ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' has become insanely popular, but it is hard to tell whether people actually like the game itself or [[WatchItForTheMeme just listen to the memes the game created without even knowing a thing about the Companion Cube or how]] TheCakeIsALie [[spoiler:(and, to top it off, it ''isn't'', as the ending shows)]].

Added DiffLines:

* The standard technique for averting this problem with new anime tends to end up [[DoubleSubversion causing it, in a roundabout way]]. Many fans will start watching ''every'' show each season, but quickly "drop" ones they don't like or don't have time for after one to three episodes. They usually believe, by the end, that they have a clear opinion of exactly how good every show was, despite having watched [[TwelveEpisodeAnime less than one-fourth]] of most of them. [[Website/AnimeNewsNetwork ANN]] took this phenomenon [[UpToEleven even further]] with the [[https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/preview-guide/ "preview guide,"]] in which the review team ranks and analyzes every new show based on the first episode. The disclaimer says that these are not meant to judge a series as a whole (which ''no one'', other than the production team, has seen yet) but readers treat them that way regardless, and will argue about what the best shows are after watching between zero and one episodes.

* ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'' fans are quick to call ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon64'' the best in the franchise despite the fact few have played it. A good majority of the fanbase got into the games through ''(More) Friends Of Mineral Town'', ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife A Wonderful Life]]'', and the NintendoDS games plus ''64'' was obscure as it was; the 64 wasn't as popular as the Playstation and even kids who owned a 64 were more likely to pick [[Videogame/SuperMario64 Mario]] than some farming game. They simply hear other fans praising it so they praise it too. It doesn't help that it will likely never be ported onto the Virtual Console.

* ''ComicBook/{{Miracleman}}'': The relative rarity of the comics and the talent involved (it was originally written by AlanMoore with the artist roster containing many future big names such as AlanDavis and RickVeitch) makes anyone who didn't read it assume it was an instant classic; but they might be disappointed in the actual product if they read it. The main problems come from the fact that Alan Moore wrote it very early in his career (around the same time he was writing ComicBook/CaptainBritain) and as such the early issues are just... bad. The book is also saddled with a horrendous IdiotPlot for the heroes' origins, which allowed all of the silver age stories to still be canon. Even the Olympus story arc, the best regarded by far, is mired with the mistakes Moore made in the first two books. Practically everything Alan Moore has done in the intervening years has been far superior, which has led to disappointment among new readers. Alan Moore himself noted that Marvel was scraping the bottom of the barrel by chasing after the rights.
