Do you live your life by the meta-critic score for every game, book, and movie released? Critics admit they often get things wrong; do you believe they're always correct?
This is your thread. You're the largest contributor in it, and largely, it's just you speaking down to people disagreeing with you and the click-bait being pushed. Might want to work on that.
I generally look at both critic and user reviews for games and movies. Books I usually read upon recommendation from friends. The media that I consume without input from others generally comes from a prior familiarity with the source material or media and in these cases I may ignore critics and users.
It also doesn't just come down to scores, but the basis in which those scores were derived.
I'm not speaking down to you and hilariously that's what you're doing to me.
As I've mentioned I don't care whether someone agrees or disagrees with me on a thread, that's the point of a forum, but the people who have come after me in this thread do so to shill for this company which makes no sense.
Again, do you believe that games should have a same day embargo on reviews? Do you believe games should be released in an unplaying state on a major platform? Do you think this should be encouraged for future games? If you think that's clickbait, by all means, but these are the facts here.
