I don't get why all these reviews are so high; I mean, I know I complain about certain TV channels who have a ***** for certain games, but what's the point of having a scale of 0% to 100% if everyone scores 80-100? It's almost like the no child left behind thing has made its way into the entertainment industry; if I had to guess, I'd say that maybe reviewers are scared of giving a game they don't like a negative review for fear of either fan or company backlash. First off, if you're grading on a scale of 0-100%, then no game should ever get a 100%, because there's no such thing as the perfect game. Few games should breach the 97-99% barrier. Most should sit in the 80-95% realm if they're good/great, the 'meh' games should be in the 70-80% range, and the bad games should have 69% or lower. There's no reason to grade 0-100% if you can't provide examples of games that scored in the 30-50% range or lower and why.


Well generally if a game is so bad that it would get less than a 70% score from more than a few outlets, it just gets ignored. The best revenge is contempt, or is it apathy? You can go on Steam and look at the meta scores there and there are a LOT of 50s and 60s that you've probably never even heard of because no one is going to waste shelf space or page space talking about a game that is probably not going to appeal to any one.

The only way to hear about a really bad game is if it is a highly anticipated really bad game (like Daikatana). There aren't too many of those.

I disagree. Our culture today has turned to sh*t. Most kids today are more concerned with playing madden and MW2 while rolling a blunt and pretending to rap. RPGs are "***" and the kids that play them are nerds. WoW sort of bridged the gap (unfortunately, the game without the sh*theads is actually really good), but other than that I don't see much of a future here in the mainstream for Final Fantasy. It makes me sad that more people don't read and enjoy games like FF, but since that's not going to change, I'm happy it's still a haven for those of us who can still appreciate hobbies that require mental capacity.



While I agree with the main point you're trying to get across here.... Why ya gotta bring down MW2? That game is like crack, lol...

It just came to mind. 90% of the people I know always say "Hey man you play MW2?! GO BUY MW2!! LETS GET STONED AND PLAY MW2! YEAH!"

So I played it and I don't really get what all the excitement is about. It's like CS for noobs with nukes.

Without regard to your point or his, he mentions MW2, rap, and drugs... and you counter by saying that MW2 is like crack.

I don't think that necessarily disputes his claim :)
