AAA games and AA games only, Indies don't have the money backing them so there good / bad anything?

Saints row has a 64 metacritic now 2022 



Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life. The reason I'm chaotic to few 3rd party developers is because I'm protecting Sega and also I lack skill to get really hot girl I really want. also few devs deserve it for making bad game's personal experiences, looking at Ghost Blade HD the shmup or Fighting EX Layer. My standards are too high for genres I play. KOF 13 > Fighting EX layer gameplay.

I feel that the term "review bomb" is unfairly criticised. When a game gets a lot of positive reviews it's "overwhelming support", but when a game gets a lot of negative reviews it's a "malicious review bomb". I can only think of a very few cases where the review bomb was done for reasons outside of the quality of the game or a controversial thing done by the developers/publishers.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Huh, I thought the term "review bombing" was something a bunch of people did to attack a game. I didn't think a game just reviewing badly (by professional reviewers) was considered being "review bombed", that's just how I've always taken it though, maybe I'm wrong.

Nah, I'd agree with you. Review bomb suggests malicious intent. People are giving bad reviews due to some specific reason other than the quality of the game. The people reviewing may not have even played the game.

If it just gets bad reviews it's not really a review bomb. Especially when the reviews are coming from professionals so it's more likely that the low scores are justified rather than an attack on the game.



Explain to me why SR deserves anything above a 60 to begin with.

Here's a game that got review bombed:
Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak.
Or maybe more like rating bombed, since most actually written reviews on Metacritic are positive.

I wonder why the Users hate it? maybe It's from competing platforms review bombing it because it's exclusive?
