One of my main problems with game sites is that they rarely ever have dedicated genre reviewers, people that are strictly focused on certain genres because they are familiar with them, like them and can properly explain the game to the userbase that is most likely interested in buying it. Most sites lack a good JRPG or just generally Japanese styled game reviewers and that's the reason why games like Nier, Yakuza, Folklore, Dynasty Warriors, Deadly Premonition, Trinity: Souls of Z'Oll and Ar Tonelico are always reviewed so badly, not in terms of the scores given, but the written text is always horrible to read. You don't get a person that loves Call of Duty, Battlefield, God of War and Uncharted to write a review on a game like Atelier Rorona.
The reason I bring up this point is because I've noticed that the audience that those games are specifically aimed at, usually love those games despite the horrible reviews written about them. I know large groups of people on forums that would claim that Nier, Folklore, Yakuza, Deadly Premonition and Atelier Rorona are amazing and that's because they understand what the game is, what it's trying to do and how they should react to it.
It happens with other genres as well, you even notice it in popular genres like FPS, especially when the majority of the reviewers compare the games being reviewed to Call of Duty, it's as if they haven't got any other FPS history to pull from.
Anyway, that's what I'd do. They wouldn't all be restricted to that set genre, but I'd make sure that when a new game comes in, it's not going to the guy with the most free time and the least experience in that genre, it's going to the person that can write a good and infromative review about the game. I don't need a page of text explaining to me why the Japanese are perverted or why it should have had an online component or why Dynasty Warriors games always suck or that the game sucks because it doesn't play like COD.
What about you guys?
Bet with Conegamer and AussieGecko that the PS3 will have more exclusives in 2011 than the Wii or 360... or something.
