Do you really believe Halo would be as popular if Sony would have bought them or Nintendo? I highly doubt Bungie's next game will even come close to the popularity of...

    Team Meat: “Kinect Is a f***ing joke”

    in Gaming Discussion on 05 August 2011

    Metallicube said: I'm still baffled people actually got excited for that thing, especially after looking at the games. The library just looks like a complete joke outside Dance Central. I tried to say Kinect sucked 6 months ago, and everyone crucified me :P It's scary how some marketting hype can manipulate some people... Child of Eden is a fantastic Kinect game.  So is...

    maverick40 said: Zappykins said:I've just come to expect that some gamers are just slugs that want to sit and push buttons and tiny joysticks. Any other movement is just too much effort to expect from them. And that's fine if they want to do that, but don't disparage others if they actually enjoy games that require some kind of movement. The flying and the sword fighting games in...

    Euphoria14 said:So what part of motion controls does this game utilize? I know it makes use of Kinect, but is majority of that motion done with just your hands? I ask this because I do not have Kinect but this game is at some point coming to PS3 with Move controls and I happen to have (2) Move controllers. Do you think it would be worth me getting stoned and giving it a rent? Here...

    in Microsoft Discussion on 18 June 2011

    CGI-Quality said: daroamer said: That may not have been what you meant but it is what you said - "reviews do not prove which is the better game".  That's a far cry from "reviews are useful but not the end all be all".  What else am I to assume when you seemed to make a definitive statement?  I'm not even trying to be combative, I was simply curious since you said...

    CGI-Quality said: I never argued whether Metacritic was a way to compare games or not (it obviously is), I said it isn't the end all be all in determining what's better or not. You asked me what I metric I used, which I replied "my own". If you weren't challenging what I was saying, why continue to push the issue? The answer will always be subjective, regardless of Metacritic...

On this end, however, Metacritic doesn't prove any of that to me (and it doesn't for millions and millions of other people either, despite the vice versa, meaning it will always be subjective). For the record, I've yet to say...

How exactly does Metacritic prove, indisputably, what game is better than another (especially when the individual reviews themselves prove nothing absolute)?
