Forums - Gaming Discussion - Issues with IGN's MM3D Score

Is IGN full of idiots?

Yes 228 67.66%
 
No 109 32.34%
 
Total:337

I'd give it a 10/10. Majora's mask has been one of my favorite games ever and the 3ds version is the version to play.

But we all have different opinions and I'd imagine the n64 original was reviewed on ign by a different person.

I've changed the thread title to something a little less abrasive. Everyone can see these thread titles, and we don't want to give the wrong impression to people viewing the site.



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

Who cares, shacknews, destructoid, digital spy all gave it an 80. It's just a review, play the damn game and enjoy it instead of complaining about one persons opinion.

With that line of thinking, all past games should have their scores slashed if only for the graphics, you know that criteria that makes or break a game by today "gamerz" "standarts"!

things that were counted as "strenghts" before can easily become "expected standard" over time with many games picking up and refining these aspects, which means as a package the game will just have less impact/"be less fun" if rereleased/remastered later on

there are some "classics" I played pretty recently like Doom and Goldeneye 007 that just don't hold up anymore, if I'd rate them by todays standards (as a "remastered" title should be) they'd end up with below mediocre scores in my book

even in FF tactics: the war of the lions some things, like the slow and annoying menu structure, were just a clear negative from todays perspective

that said judging by your reponse you are more interested in confirming your bias than in a discussion, so have a nice day



There was nothing like the original game at it's time, it deserved a 10/10 score. The 3DS version has minor changes that can get irritating at times, the revamped boss fights caught me off guard, the camera (even on the New 3DS) can get in the way at times, and the new swimming controls are a wee bit annoying. There's also no feeling of impending doom anymore. It's gorgeous, but it hasn't held up as well as Ocarina of Time I'd say. It deserves the overall score it's got on Metacritic.

But at the end of the day, it's all a matter of opinion, if you enjoy it then that's all that really matters.

I don't know why you care.

Stop reading their reviews and giving them hits. Thats the best thing you can do.

You summed it pretty well!

When IGN gives a 9 to empty(shiny) shell games like Evolve, all is said, even their own readers rate the game at 7.4, I guess that ad revenue they got from having Evolve ads plastered all over IGN, um... open their eyes to the greatne$$ of said game!

For the record, I'm not even a big fan of Zelda: Majora's Mask, I love Zelda games to death but I'll say it loud & clear, some will consider it blasphemy, but Ocarina & Majora are my least prefered Zelda games!

That said set aside, not to see the i$$ues behind IGN game ratings, I would have to be blind. It's not the Zelda: Majora's Mask score that I find laughable, 8.7 is quite good, it's the consistency of game rating or lack of it that is the i$$ue!

Well they gave TLoU a 10 so i guess i can agree with you OP :D.


They gave Evolve a 9 for god sake!!! Going by that metric, Zelda: MM should have scored 19/10 or something...


Weed is not good, i don't think they knew that...
