Probably Amy Hennig, Richard Garriot, or Swery65. They all would have some interesting perspectives on the industry, Id wager.
What Valve allows onto their service or does not allow is a choice they are free to make as an online merchant, however it would be wise of them to take heed when there is large customer demand.
Are they on a video game console or PC? If yes, then there you go, you answered your own question. Now are they GOOD video games? That depends on the visual novel in question. If you hang your game hat on the narrative hook, your writing better be the toppest of notches.
No, because critics will always exist and have their respective opinions, but that doesn't entail censorship, just gatekeepers, and the industry needs gatekeepers, but not censors. The jump to censorship comes with critics that feel their opinion is the only valid one, and that is where the problem lies: ego.
Treating your audience with respect need to be the #1 priority of anyone in entertainment. The lack of ethics is simply symptomatic of that lack of respect.
Something like -5 on average.
Was anyone surprised that Gamasutra is trying to play nice after their site visits started plummeting?
Ask yourself: why not zoidberg?
All of my female vampire characters ever, really. I have a thing for vamps.
Both how something is intended, and how it is received, are important to consider, but they are not equally important. Context is key. We cannot simply declare something is X because we feel it is X, especially if there is no evidence the author intended it to be X.

Definitely Ultima IV, for reasons gone over in my Smoke Signals article.
No point watching TV these days and paying 60$ to be advertised to.
Molag Bal. Obviously.
I already know the answer to this, for the education system tells me I am a purple penguin.
That's some master-grade origami.
Sleep. Also finishing that review.
Science is the universal language of any technologically-advanced civilisation, ours and others.
I would like a jelly baby, yes.
What's the question? If I'd want to be in a fantastic world if I was just the NPC? With my chronic illness, it really wouldn't be any different from my place in this one, really.
I tend to play more deck-building games, Dominion is love. Shadows over Camelot is probably my favourite board game.
At any given time I'm probably not well. I've lived with chronic illness since I was 11 that is both painful and draining. You get used to it after a while, though. At this moment, I'm just happy to have found a bunch of people who have similar experiences with gaming to overcome those kind of things. It helps more than I could put to words.
Probably 1 million dollars. I've had enough of see-saw physics puzzles.
