What does it matter? The SS review was yesterdays news once comenting was available, just like this will be in a week. Had the SS review allowed comments the second it was put up you'd see just as many or more comments than the GR review.

My thread is about Gamespot being fair or not, if you are here only to complain about when the comment section came into effect go make your own thread.

Nope, came here to point out how stupid your topic title is. Though, I shouldn't expect much better from you.

You're only causing derailment in my thread, if you have nothing constructive to say leave please.  I'm not here to satisfy anyone and especially not you, I never heard of you before, who are you anyway? popping out of the blue, talking as if you know me telling people "thats so Turkish," and "shouldnt expect better from you"? I hope you're not stalking me.

You post everywhere, I'd have to be clinically blind not to notice you on here. And no, this isn't really derailment. I'm talking about the validity of your thread's topic, which is completely on... topic.

I'm kind of offended by the poll on this thread. it would indicate that we're incapable of thinking for ourselves. I think Gravity Rush is good because I just finished beating it last night and getting Platinum on it this morning.


Yep, that's Turkish, as you probably know. The whole thread itself is pretty sad, though. He seems to be trying to make a point that a Sony game getting a lower review score is a bigger upset than a Nintendo game if as to say people care more about Sony games. I mean his basis is the number of comments, for crying out loud. The Zelda review didn't even allow comments for a while after the review was put up. There isn't a single review on GameSpot that has comments older than 6 months because they didn't allow it until just 6 months ago.


But that still doesn't change the fact that Gravity Rush review has more comments then Skyward Sword does it

but that would be redundant.  So let's get this straight: this thread is only for troll hits, not for actual discussion? 

Why would you even think of this thread as only for troll hits? Thats ridicilous. It is a discussion wether gamespot is biased or not with their reviews. I mean its pretty obvious when you look at my questions in the OP.  You felt insulted by the poll, fine, but I'm glad not everyone thinks like you do. I cannot satisfy every individual here and add their choice in the poll. Live with it and stop complaining.

Its good that you notice me and all, but I dont know you, so dont talk like you know me. Next time don't be a lurker but reply to my comments so we can have a discussion.



Anytime I see a review that deviates too far from mean score either merits a closer look as to what the reviewer saw that everyone else didn't, or I simply don't bother giving that site and the review my time and hit.

The former runs the assumption that the reviewer in question, as it is no longer the review itself that's the point of focus, is either incredibly insightful and perceptive or in rare instances, is simply a reviewer who's written reviews I largely found myself agreeing with in the past.

I have to say that the "incredibly insightful and perceptive" stamp of legitimacy is so rare that it may as well be a platinum leaf embossed stamp of approval and in virtually every case, the review can simply be chalked up to:

a) they just didn't like the game. Not their thing. They like FPS games and instead they're reviewing the latest chapter of Let's Dance.

b) all too common: the reviewer really wants to be relevant, generate hits and create any sort of controversy that will make it happen. They may not even agree with their own words.

c) must be the contrarian. If the vast majority is universally in accord regarding the merits of a given game, they feel it's their duty to tell everyone otherwise.

The one thing all three types of reviews have in common is that none of them matter beyond the opinion that "everyone is entitled to their opinion" which overlooks the fact that some opinions are more valid than others.

I stopped buying games based off reviews a long time ago. I still care about reviews though because other people do. If a game that I think is great gets bad reviews that means it will sell less. As a result less games will be made similar to it. With Gravity Rush for example if its meta was 95 it would sell millions and tons of systems. If that happened a sequel would almost be guaranteed and more novel games like it would be brought to the system. Instead with these reviews the general public will quickly forget this gem ever existed.

Amen brotha. When a site wants to review a game, they should let it review to someone who's open to such games. You let some shooter guy review a JRPG and you will get a low score guaranteed.

Reply to your comment next time? That's what I did 7 pages ago. I usually ignore you, but I guess I decided not to this time. And a lurker? No, not at all. Your posts are usually not worth acknowledging, if I say so myself. And I shouldn't have acknowledged you here, I just didn't like that you labeled this review a scandal and bigger "shitstorm" than the Zelda one based on the reasoning you used.

they simple want money from the publisher or some shit cause their reviews are lame and garbage.

zelda, gravity rush and many other games got trolled by them ...

did you guys watch this :

then the dev defend the game here :

I like Gravity Rush because it's different. A new universe to explore, new gaming mechanics to enjoy (I've not played gravity manipulation platformer in this style before) if GameSpot want to give it 6.5 that's their call. Not everybody likes the same games and actually as much as I'm currently finding Gravity Rush and 8 for me personally, there are quite a few flaws that would lower that score for people expecting other things from the game.

There are plenty of 9-10/10 games that I'd say were average at best.



RIP Dad 25/11/51 - 13/12/13. You will be missed but never forgotten.
