I thought that Nintendo was a... more humble company, I guess I was completely wrong. This is the kind of stuff that really gets on my nerves, I might have to rethink my spending habits. I am not sure if I want to give money to a company that cares more about Metacritic than me.


Metacritic scores aren't random numbers, like say sales figures. They reflect a a greater interest in consumer enjoyment, whereas sales these days are really just showing off marketing skill.

No matter what Nintendo does some people will just want to make it sound negative.

If Nintendo gives the Wii U a price drop = "Wow, Nintendo's getting really desperate".
If Nintendo talks about how their system has the best reviewed games = "That's just sad".

Reality is hars, believe me. But we live in reality world.



But would metacritic lie?

Still don't know of a terrible game thats got brilliant metacritic and vise versa. Its better then just citing one random review.

Backwards logic you have there. How am I supposed to know if I agree with a particular thread unless I read it? Furthermore, if the point of this forum is not to respond to said threads, regardless of how I feel about them, then what is the point?

I hate to break it to you, but if this site only consisted of people that didn't criticize others' threads, there would be no users. I'm only responding to your egregious stance towards a company's metacritic scores. If you feel strongly about that, maybe you shouldn't be making threads at all.

We do.

A.) The common man is a fool with no appreciation for the art of ludology. They buy the hyped machine and then the hyped machine gets hyped games. The one that tries to sell on the best ludology, in part due to horrific marketing incompetence, is the one to suffer worst. 

B.) By having rubbish marketing Nintendo are put in the position where people assume they aren't as good because they have no. When reality reveals they have better games, despite having a few less average ones per year, people will go into denial or even get angry because its not the reality their leaders have ingrained in them. Its like how creationists get mad at scientists for disproving (the oxymoronic, but hyped up in their culture) 'creationist scholars'.

Do you understand, i am making this topic is to discuss , and i don't need any reason beside that, but you derailing the thread by giving unnecessary comment. If you really what to involve with the topic please bring more reasonable comment and not derailing the topic.

Don't mind the concept of an advertisement focusing on metacritic scores. I really only take issue with the min-maxing and arbitrary qualifications they're using to make the difference as large as they possibly can, which does remind me more of arguing on a forum than something a company would do. Seems somewhat petty and childish, but maybe my opinion is colored by the people I usually see using such tactics and my thoughts on them.
