I don't know what the sudden backlash against 3DMark is all about from people (nVidia, nVnews, and [H] most notably). It's not like reviewers only focus on 3DMark scores, most reviews I read have all types of different games from different genres using the two main APIs (DX and OGL). Frankly, any review that states only 3DMark numbers isn't worth reading.
most good reviews do benchmark several games and not just 3dmark. but there are lots of "reviews" that consist of nothing other than maybe your generic Quake3 score, 3dmark score, and maybe one other DX game score.
obviously not true of any of the major sites, but was and is still true of many of the smaller sites, magazines, etc.
