Forums - Gaming Discussion - Console-WAR becomes Religion oO Meta in big criticism, needs new rules!

I wish I had the ability to render judgment on fan-bases that each are comprised tens of millions of people, and determine "who is the worst". Or at least have the gall to say I could possibly have the faintest understanding of such an impossible to tabulate tapestry of internet activity that spans decades, with comments that number in the billions. Fucking amazing.

I had to see for myself. Watched the ending with final gameplay moments and epilogue. For fans of the first game I can completely understand if they felt let down.

The alt right reviewers aren’t helping and are perhaps representing the whole when people are trying to understand the source of the outrage. Thats not the issue, I see the review bombs, and the sheer number of it, being the result of regular people trying to get the attention of people on the fence to reconsider their purchase. That there is a disconnect between end users and media, just like Star Wars Last Jedi.

It’s the story and the writing that ultimately is best case divisive and worst case does a disservice to the fans. This is me seeing various streamer reactions, comment sections across multiple videos, and Twitter. I take no pleasure in saying this it feels like when Halo 5s story was ripped apart I wouldn’t wish that on someone who loves a IP. Those who are liking the game need to understand this isn’t trolls or fanboys or all alt right....this is people who are big fans of LOU1.

As I posted on an another thread:

1 - Metacritic account should have to be linked to the psn id;
2- Only those who ACTUALLY had the game, would be able to post a score;
3 - End.

Excuse me, care to explain? Seems to be a universal meaning to the term

Hello friends, gamer und readers :) Yesterday The Last of Us 2 appeared on PlayStation 4 and got a 95% rating average, worldwide(all ratings of the magazines summarized) The editors and magazines are thrilled: its one of the best games of all time and for many people the best Game in this PS4-Generation. The quality is strong in every category (gameplay / story / graphic / atmosphere / soundtracks), as the editors report. By the way: ign https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QwreMeXlFoY

But 12 hours after the release!!, over 5,000 users on Metacritic gave the game 1/10 points. That was 90% of all ratings.

Yes, its true: 1 star! What does 1 star mean? That means: Incredibly bad quality, one of the worst games ever, it doesn't do anything good. For explanation: 10/10 and 9/10 Stars = Awesome. 8/7 Stars = Good.

But 24 hours after the release, over 14,000 users on Metacritic gave the game 1/10 points 3.3/10 overall, currently. This rating is of course ridiculous and does not reflect the quality of the game. Is Review-bashing the future in our wonderful hobby?

Over thousands of "reviews comments" with words like "PlayStation sucks", "the game is LOOOL", "Xbox Games are better", There are also comments with "hatred of women" because 2 women find themselves attractive in the game. "Spoiler from the Leaks" overall, "don't like blood, i would never play it haha" "1/10 because its only on playstation", "graphic looks like shit" and another strange stuffs with 2-3 sentences as a review.ect.. so many ratings from people who didn't play it and a few hours after the release 1/10 points awarded. The most of the reviews are not by Fans. Thats are over 14,000 people now. crazy is, it was announced that some other pages of consoles-fansites had agreed to make the game bad by any means. WTF. This is not just a testimony to poverty for all players, it also harms the gaming industry.

Many people intentionally rate a game 1/10 because it's very popular. That was also the case with Uncharted 4 and Death Stranding in the first days. But this popularity is important in order to advance the medium of video games and also to get other people - who have nothing to do with games - to taste / arouse interest. now it is taking on new dimensions. This 1/10-ratings are of course ridiculous and does not reflect the quality of the game. Review-Crashing is becoming new fashion, console-wars are getting stronger. Are consoles a religion? Gamers still don't stick together. And the haters who talk badly about other games every day - are not gamers. The only ones who like that .. are fanboys who want to harm other studios. Is that fair? No sense of justice because you like other games more? This has nothing to do with games taste, the destruction of a game is the focus.

I quote a famous page: "A sad event for the whole world of games. Be fair and enjoy games instead of spending time to permanently damage games".

this situation on the website, fanboys versus exclusives, shows how poor the internet society is. It also shows how much hate people have - just because they don't have the other console, don't like the game, or just find it funny.
But don't forget: it harms the complete game industry and the sales figures of the games. This conflict will go to Zelda and Co, someday. if nothing is done. It is important that fans of other consoles also reject this. Hate and bashing creates bashing and hatred. Thats bad, for everyone. Magazines are shocked. The Last of Us 2 thread shows so many positive thoughts and exciting emotions that people share. But this 1/10 flood is crazy and bad for everyone. We now know that user-ratings on this website hardly matter anymore. Most are playing a new game, the rest are 24 hours online and...

I join the editors and some magazines: what is currently happening is a shame for the video game industry and its fans. If many thousands give 1/10 points within a few hours, even though the game is objectively good to great - it has nothing to do with taste. It's review bashing, the destruction of a gaming brand. Don't forget: Studios shrink and lay off employees. People can lose their jobs at large studios if a game doesn't sell enough. Sad Times for Gaming.

Meta needs new rules!

PS: Sorry for my english, its not good oO it took me an hour for this long comment xD I'm curious to see how many people agree on VGChartz (its the best site, for me personally) and how many people don't care and make excuses because it's not their "system x or whatever game". I personally played the first 3 hours of play so far and am impressed. I will continue to enjoy it for the next few weeks and am curious to see what the consequences will be or whether the video game world will continue just as badly in the future. Wish all a great weekend, stay healthy!

What do you think happened to alot of Xbox games Last Gen?



Do these people truly think that gMe scores are all that watter in the world, it hilarious that they actually take their time out to write a review to give it a low score just to bring the score down all because its not on their console of choice. 

Meta just needs to remove the whole user review thing because while most people do realise what's happening here, there actually will be peollnout there that may be swayed by the user review average score. 

But seriously these people need to get a life, their lives must be so dull and boring to want to take the time out to do this. Funny people.

Add me if you want but let me know youre from this website

I honestly doubt the hate and review bombing is motivated by console wars. It appears to be outrage over what Naughty Dog has done to the story and characters from a once beloved series. I haven't leave a review because I have not played the game, but I refuse to buy/play it because of what they've done.



This right here is just further proof that this game has been trashed online by  majority of people who have pathetic level of fanboy agenda and has very little to do with the protagonist being gay. 

Seriously and were supposed to believed random blogs, random online dwellers now that all the high scores are paid reviews and that the 0 user scores are from the real "fans" that thinks the game is the worst of the worst not even functional game? "Real fans" who got a a list of all xbox games rated 10.....get real.

Fanboyism at its peak, grown men/women going through all this just to destroy a game that a lot of people put so much passion and time to make because it's not playable on the plastic box they purchased.

Absolutely disgusting.
