I find it hard to believe there exists a shipped game that nobody
wrote a word about, ever.

For one thing, there's the developers/manufacturers - ad copy, documentation.

Then there are things like magazine reviews, new product announcements
in the press, etc.

There's online reviews and news for anything published after the late 80s or so.

The problem is that most of these sources are ephemeral and possibly
hard to lay hands on.
