I ask this because I do not have Kinect but this game is at some point coming to PS3 with Move controls and I happen to have (2) Move controllers. Do you think it would be worth me getting stoned and giving it a rent? Here...

    CGI-Quality said: daroamer said: That may not have been what you meant but it is what you said - "reviews do not prove which is the better game".  That's a far cry from "reviews are useful but not the end all be all".  What else am I to assume when you seemed to make a definitive statement?  I'm not even trying to be combative, I was simply curious since you said...

    CGI-Quality said: I never argued whether Metacritic was a way to compare games or not (it obviously is), I said it isn't the end all be all in determining what's better or not. You asked me what I metric I used, which I replied "my own". If you weren't challenging what I was saying, why continue to push the issue? The answer will always be subjective, regardless of Metacritic...

How exactly does Metacritic prove, indisputably, what game is better than another (especially when the individual reviews themselves prove nothing absolute)?
