I tried uploading my gameplay commentaries of it and they slapped a copyright of it on there. Why can they be allowed to do this?

Well have you used clips from IGN? Anything they used in, say, their video review will probably have an IGN watermark splashed on it. If it's gameplay you've recorded yourself though, I don't see what claim IGN has on it.

IGN is allowed to do this because ... well, anyone is ALLOWED to make a claim. All you have to do is dispute it, and point out they don't hold copyright. They're just counting on people not doing this.
