I'll wait for Sterlings review, I tend to agree with most of his reviews so far.

Days Gone got a 71 MC, that was an almost great game. This must be a damn masterpiece.

What was it that was said in the Days Gone thread? You can't win them all! 



People are acting like a 84+ MC is trash... Gameplay is just not for everybody, if you want action-packed sequences from begining to end, you will probably be dissappointed by the game.



I'll wait for people that will say this
"Death Stranding is an irredeemable piece of garbage that should serve as a warning to publishers who give developers carte blanche to create ‘art’." https://stevivor.com/reviews/death-stranding-review-dead-arrival/
isn't troll review for clickbaits, and how it is fair and normal for him to think it.

Damn, the low end and the high end are so far apart.

TLDR version of your post: The majority of western reviewers are Nintendo's shills despite Nintendo games were pretty much ignored by western media when it comes to the GOTY season. 

https://gotypicks.blogspot.com/

Western publications bias = Western-made games and only 2 Japanese games since 2003. Nintendo was very unfortunate because they were from Japan and the kiddy images of the company made it harder for their games to be discussed by western media. 
Take a look at the majority of those publications' locations it's basically US-EU centric list of publications.  The blog is such a mess. 

It's kind of miracle to see how BOTW won despite being put in that kind of circumtances. 

Yes, poor Nintendo, treated so harshly by the media.  It's really not fair the way their games always get raked over the coals in reviews.  

Seriously, why don't you show us what these games are that got shafted and why the games that won more awards didn't deserve the accolades they received?  That way you can prove you know what you're talking about.

A game needs to be evaluated by what it wants to do and how it does it, not on how you want it to be.

Unless you find it ok that anyone takes 50 points from all games that are cartooney because they like photorealism or vice-versa.

Harsh isnt even the right word..... to express how silly that score is, its worse than "harsh".

There has to be some sort of standard for what a review score means, or else the entire score metric is baseless and worthless.
3.5 is the sort of score you give some broken peice of crapy indie game, full of bugs.

All you need to do is watch a trailer or some gameplay and you can tell its not a 3,5 score.
That reivewer should be banned for click bait score giveing.

You can’t mandate a standard for something based entirely on opinion. There’s nothing that says an indie game or cheaper game should be reviewed differently. There’s nothing that says an exclusive should be reviewed differently than a multi platform. Some outlets do that, some dont. 

When you say a certain score should only be reserved for certain qualifications you’re speaking purely from personal opinion and bias. But those are what makes criticism interesting. People reviewing are also applying their own opinions and bias. You seem to want a vanilla, standardized form of reviewing and that sounds incredibly boring to me.

Also, I disagree that a big budget AAA title can’t be scored a 3.5 because it’s not an indie title or it isn’t buggy. The Order 1886 is a great looking, fully functional and bug free title. I wouldn’t bat an eye at a 3.5 score for it because the things it tries to do well, it fails miserably. I haven’t read the 3.5 DS score and probably never will, but if the reviewer found major flaws with key elements then why can’t it be a 3.5?

Also maybe if you feel this strongly about scores, don’t rely on a review aggregator? Or don’t even look at them. Find a stable of reviewers who share your opinions and bias and score standards and only read their reviews.

Your right, the problem is right now indie games get a pass.
They arnt judged nearly as harshly on graphics/sounds ect as AAA games.

It goes both ways, if you believe what you say.


1886 isnt a 3,5 score game though.
Also yes if someone reviewed that as a 3,5 that would be a troll or clickbait review as well imo.

Its short, and its repeative use of monsters..... but its not a bad game.

a 3,5 score should be for a bad game.

"Also maybe if you feel this strongly about scores, don’t rely on a review aggregator? Or don’t even look at them. Find a stable of reviewers who share your opinions and bias and score standards and only read their reviews."

I rather see this broken review system with metascore get fixed, than ignore it, and just look at stable reviewer ect.
Granted my only way to do anything is to express things on a forum like this.

^ so much this.

Same crap with Days Gone, getting bad review scores because they found it offensive towards women or something.
That shouldnt be a real reason to take points off of a review.
