It is funny with reviewers, they complain about this game being another open world, but will take out points from any game that isn't open or free. They just like to talk BS.

Its exactly why we should never take reviews too seriously no matter what platform or game preference gamers have. The only way to truly tell if a game is good or bad for you is by actually playing it yourself.

Good most reviewsites aren't being watched and given credit like they used to get.

Youtube has most of the eyes of consumers invested on it i do think and although you also have crap there,it is easier to see the consumer perspective from real gamers on that platform.

I do think there is merit in finding a publication and/ or specific reviewer who seems to have a similar taste to you.

I Agree to a certent point. I will throw out a very good personal example.

As many can tell i am a Jim Sterling follower, and i am also a huge Zelda BOTW fan. Jim gave it a 7/10.. which i heavily disagreed with. Now if i was going to base my purchase on his review i would have avoided BOTW. What a huge mistake that would have been since BOTW is my game of the generation.

Its why the only real opinion is your personal one.

That is true, no one will align up perfectly all the time. I think if money is an issue then it's not a bad idea, but if you are more willing to spend money/ or are able to etc then at the end of the day your experience is what counts most.

My main point is, as long as you try something out for yourself, its when your opinion has weight. Saying something is bad because it scored in the mid 60s or low 70s is never a fair judgement on a game. No different to you liking Day's Gone and you ask your friend to go play it and they turn around and say "no" because the game scored crap on reviews. Ill give you my example.

Dying Light scored a 74 on Meta and I love this game. Its one of the best Zombie games ever made in my opinion and I am glad I tried it out rather than seeing the reviews, and basing my purchase on them. It would have easily been a hard miss if I went in with a review focus in mind.

I grew up with Nintendo, I own all there systems however these days I game on a few devices but primary on PC so I have my fair share of really bad games due to the open platform, however I never let reviews cloud my judgement. I currently play on the PC, Switch, 3DS and a XB1 (Due to Halo and Rare) and plan on getting PSNow once its available in my region.

I finished the game last Friday. I'm downgrading the game from great to merely good. Thirty hours of extra playtime makes a hell of a difference. I'll write a review on the game eventually. In short though, the missions start to get repetitive, the open world is pretty bland/empty, and the villains are bad cartoon characters. Oh, and refueling on gas, as well as, looting corpses/cars is needlessly time consuming. It's a game that's scored in the low 70's when IMO it should have been in the very high 70's. It's a game with genuinely cool shit to show us for the first 30 hours, dragged out to a 60 hour game. Had they just ended the main storyline halfway through, (instead of dragging it out), and given us more actual things to discover in the open world, it would have been great. 

I am looking forward to the sequel so long as they fire their level designer, or hire more level designers. Half the levels are really good, and the other half are just bland/lazy. Oh, this horde? It runs at you out of a cave in the wilderness! Oh this other horde? You fight it in a town with a ton of explosive barrels, traps, and choke points. Oh this level? You cover your buddy with Sniper fire as he plants explosive charges. Oh this other level? You run up into a generic camp of generic enemies carrying crappy weapons, and stupid AI. You then proceed to play wack a' mole from a distance as they all hide behind cover and occasionally pop their heads up to shoot at you from a distance. Don't get me wrong, cover based shooting can be fun. But Uncharted did it best with all the climbing, mechanics mixed in.

Well nevermind that literally every other reviewer on the planet gave the game high praise!

So true. I've been hearing nothing but good things about this game honestly. Other than the bugs. I plan on getting it once I catch up on my backlog. Working on God of War right now but not sure how long that will last not really enjoying it so far.
