If I wanted an informed opinion about something I like, I would rather listen to someone that have a taste for that.
Would you take the criticism of someone that likes comics as relevant to books just because both are written? Sure all reviews are subjective (but can still point to objectively verifiable things), still when a game is generally considered 90+ and you as someone that doesn't like the genre grades it as a 40 don't say it is "good to listen to the ones that don't agree". If the person likes the genre and give a harsh criticism that is totally fine, when someone doesn't like it goes to the hating... at least that is usually what our moderation team do on their moderation over here, harsh critics from people that are outside of the fanbase go to the classification of hate not fair criticism.
"If I wanted an informed opinion about something I like, I would rather listen to someone that have a taste for that."
That's exactly right. And if I wanted an informed opinion about something I don't like, I would want an outlet for that as well. I'm not arguing to replace positive reviews with negative reviews. I'm arguing to allow them to sit side-by-side, and let the consumer decide which is most appropriate.
Don't confuse an outlier score with "hating." If you take the time to read the review (and not just freak out about the number on Metacritic) you might be surprised. There are cogent, artful 3/10 reviews and amateurish, incoherent 10/10 reviews.
If I don't like a genre or a game why would I look after reviews to cement that view when I can use my time in a much better way playing what I like?
If you don't like the genre, hate the type of game, then your score is born from hating it. Just like the gal that reviewed GT5 and her main reason for a 4/10 was "what is the point of running in circles? Despise being pretty this game is really boring".
But surely enough if you are looking at exclusives you may also ignore the magazines that are attached to the brand to also avoid overly positive reviews... but in a case like HZD a 6/10 is a troll even if you go there and justify "it is cogent and artful". There were justifications on the 6/10 with "this perfect part here Witcher was doing before, this other great part over here GTA have done, this amazing section Assassins Creed done", so the game was reviewed as almost flaweless, but got a 6/10 because aspects of it were done in other games, that doesn't seem like value added at all.
