Very intresting points made here. Review system is archaic and it needs to go.

Did not realize there was a debacle. Guess I will have to check out the video.



I agree with the vid. And 7 isn't a horrible score at all.

Yeah I agree. On the Internet a game nowadays is either a 1 or a 10. The review system is fucked up.

I'm still listening to the vid. he made a lot of valid points, especially about the comments.



He makes very valid points, points that most of us have said or know. Poor scaling of review scores (history of inflating scores so that 7/10=bad in gamer's minds), inconsistent treatment of objective elements that reduce the quality of a game (bugs, glitches, technical performance defects etc).

He didn't actually say the 7/10 from Gamespot was wrong, but just that when compared to other games GS reviewed like ACU and Lords of the Fallen it seems like the scores for those other games are too high, compared to the reasoning for Batman being a 7/10.

Gamespot has been non existent to me for as long as I can remember.



Haven't played it yet, so can't say if I agree but I bet anyone that agree or is hating on the review haven't played it yet either.
