Oh God, it's Darksydephil!!



"Oh noes, they had a different opinion than me!"

Who gives a fuck, it's one review. It's not going to ruin the game for anyone.



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

7/10 is a good score

Very intresting points made here. Review system is archaic and it needs to go.

Well... this is the same website that docked Tropical Freeze and Grand Theft Auto V. I cannot say I am surprised. For me, judge a game for yourself.

Yeah i hear alot of people who were in the industry say that some sites just give low scores just to gain traffic to the site. Yet, i haven't played the game so i cant say if it deserves that score.

I've enjoyed a lot of games that were 70s-80s on Metacritic and I've hated quite a few games in the 90s range on MC. Metacritic is another tangent entirely that I'm too tired tonight to go off on.

That said, it seemed like 7th generation reviewers tended to glad-hand certain games and certain publishers. I think Gerstmanngate and Ubisoft pulling ad revenue from EGM/1UP over a less-than-kind review of the first Assassin's Creed had a chilling effect on game reviewers. Then, in this generation, there always seems to be one reviewer that just has to be "that one guy" that docks a game that everybody else loves. The only reviews of games that really affect me are games that are obviously broken. Otherwise, I just buy what I want.



And DSP makes another video I find myself agreeing with. Weird. Even without playing the new Batman game, the idea that Gamespot thinks Lords of the Fallen is a better game is pretty funny.



Didn't know people cared about GameSpot scores...
