>>315630080 Don't most modern journalists rate based on how problematic games are? i.e. 9-10 are paid reviews or socially progressive. And anything under that is varying levels of problematic or atleast not progressive enough.
Yeah, pretty much, but it completely depends on personal experience.
If you've never played a game before and you try a 2/10 game, you might enjoy it because you can't really compare it to anything else. The prime example is if you're a kid and if it's your first game.
Otherwise, as you continue playing games you also refine your tastes, which makes games of a certain level, which you might've played years ago, complete junk to you now. You're just used to a higher standard.
This also applies to genres. If you play a lot of RPGs, for instance, then you most likely won't bother with games that lack certain characteristics and mechanics that you're used to. Something that you believe that every game should have.
But if you try playing a game of a different genre, one that you normally never play, you might enjoy it even if it's really badly rated. And not just by reviewers, but the community as well. And that's simply because you don't know any better. That's about it, really.
But that's wrong. If piracy and reviews weren't a thing, or if people were unable to communicate their experiences, we'd all be buying into shitty titles. I'm not going to buy something that I might not enjoy. How would I know if it's any good without first reading about it, watching videos, checking opinions and reviews, and so on? Just YOLO buy it? Hah, no. I have standards.
>>315632102 In order for a game to get a 10 it had to get a 10 in every category. I guess they just got tired of having to lie that a game was a 10 in every regard such as with their Uncharted 3 review where they gave the game a 10 in lasting appeal when the game did not offer anything special compared to other similar 3rd person shooters (multiplayer and collectibles)
>>315630080 Gaming is dominated by stupid little kids who get their fee-fees hurt and get "triggered" if a game they're interested in gets anything less than a 9/10. Corrupt game journalists therefore give every significant release a 9/10 or 10/10 so that people continue buying their magazine and going to their websites.
Game reviews will never be reliable like other reviews are. Look at movie reviews; even great movies will get 7/10 scores, because these people have nothing to gain by giving the movie a score higher than what it deserves, and because people reading it are adults who understand that "7/10" doesn't mean that it's absolute fucking shit and nobody should ever watch the movie.
>>315631748 >separating music and sound effects >separating level design and game play >not separating difficulty and controls from game play. >not having a spot for stability, optimization, or port quality separate from graphics. >separating any of these in the first place because a game is a combined experience of all of these qualities and if one falters, you can reflect it in an overall score.
user reviews are the only thing worth a shit. obviously there's shills there, but everything sort of balances out on its own most of the time and gives an accurate representation about the quality of the game.
