Rant Time

Post by DP on Wed Sep 18, 2013 12:27 pm

You know what I hate? How people badmouth games that get 10s because the games aren't perfect. This has been a complaint of mine for years now, honestly, but the recent attacks on games like Infinite, TLoU, and GTA IV/V have started to piss me off. I note IV because people have complained that it is the highest rated game of modern time (modern being the internet era, post-OoT). People act as if a 10 is a perfect score when really it's clear that it's not. Godfather is not a perfect movie, and yet it's revered with the best possible scores. A perfect score is not a perfect game. It never was. Mario 64 has problems. OoT DEFINITELY has problems. IV has a poor gameplay but an innovative story. V has framerate issue (sic). TLoU has a sometimes touchy aiming scheme. Infinite has an inconsistent story in reference to the gameplay. ALL of these games are perfect 10s without a doubt. Five of those sic defined their respective eras, with the prequel to the sixth doing the same.

People have to realize this. V is not perfect. But bitching about how it is currently tied with IV as the best is unfair to both, and unfair to every game ever given a 10. That's why IGN has been 10-happy in recent years as opposed to previously when they rarely did; they realized a 10 isn't and shouldn't be sacred. In this review era of 7 being terrible, a 10 is a three to four star movie (out of four), and until we revamp and fix our review system and the stigma of an average score we cannot complain. We're the ones who started this cycle, after all.

this. there is no way tlou and gtav aren't 10/10 (Infinite can be argued.) there is no such thing as a perfect game. but lets face it anygame that got 10/10 is as close as you get. the key to a 10/10 is how much does the good outweigh the bad. like every gta game v is littered with problems (See: biting off more than you can chew) but everything else is soo good and the problems soo miniscule that it doesn't matter.

i think the review system is flawed anyway they only use 6-10 for the most part any other scores are VERY rare
theres also the fact that games like dragon age 2 and kayne and lynch 2 get incredible scores yet they are terrible

heck most people forget the most important part of the review and scroll down to the score they dont read what people say
reviews should just list the positives and negatives scores are stupid when people start considering 8s and 9s bad scores

It's rather hard to explain but, he doesn't usually give easy scores for major franchises when every other reviewer would kiss a companies ass if the game sucks. However, he is fair towards games that do deserve their score such as Infinite, DmC, and any other game.

Again, I do say FAIR. It's usually not overly biased.

He also tends to nitpick a lot (look at his name) so I'm personally 50/50 on him.

I personally don't like Angry Joe, I find him biased at times and doesn't see the whole picture. But, angry people never get the full picture so that makes sense.

Is he supposed to be more of a joke (since his name is Angry Joe) or is he supposed to be a legit reviewer?
