How did anyone expect a 90+ meta for this game? You literally deliver packages from point A to B, then throw in Kojima crazy in there. Imagine a world where a game about being a deliveryman wins GOTY? Haha
and I used to think Kojima was god tier but this delivery escort system, no action bullshit is fucking trash.

he’s lost it and is obsessed with Hollywood pedophiles. Fuck this game

I don’t want to play as that white trash walking dead hobo

Can you back up that statement with something more than accusations? I assume IGNs different branches are seperate entities with indivodual reviewers, so I really don't see what the problem is.
Or that any game that scores highly is bound to actually be a piece of shit that does some sjw dick sucking.

The last Jedi reviewed well... biggest piece of shit of all time. reviewers are hacks

You clearly didn't read the OP properly.

This is the most childish criticism I've read so far regarding Death Stranding on GAF.

Death Stranding being a walking simulator is avalid criticism. It having no action is a valid criticism.

you bending over ... is a hobby

The tears from people who are upset over the fact that the vast majority of the reviews are positive.

Just print out the IGN US review a few hundred times, stick it all over your bedroom wall and have a wank over it. You will feel better, trust me.

I did not read the review, but i bet one of the cons was "far too much ground"

Relax and ignore reviews like this and instead watch reviews from sources you trust.

I will definetely get the game because of the story alone.

This is about a gaming review website that compromised its journalistic integrity for maximum clickbait-generated revenue.
You haven’t even played the game! How would you know if it deserves a higher score? Even so, it can have a score in the middle range and still be a good game. Not everyone has the same opinion on every game. And to wish people lose their jobs is absolutely disgusting.

Well I expected... I loved the previous games from Kojima.
84 is a bit low in his standard.

Ever heard of adding humor to a rage-filled rant? I'm genuinely upset to see IGN release such an obvious ckickbait review score.
If you are genuinely upset, I am genuinely worried about you, get a grip! They gave it 2.3 more points than a game I am fairly certain is leagues better than Death Stranding (Sonic Unleashed), and do you see me crying?

Jeez, you guys take me too seriously. Ever heard of a humorous rant before? I have every right to make a thread and present a logical argument.

OP's obsession/fetish for review numbers is really the most interesting thing in the thread. I agree there is some kind of "objective" number we can suss out by the rules the media plays by, but that should be another reason not to give a shit about them: it does have as much to do with marketing and politics - if not more so - than subjective experience, and even then the subjective space is prone to politicization, grandstanding and career-making.

Reading game reviews is like being a private eye sifting through someone's garbage for information pertaining to the case. We shouldn't be worried about the state of the garbage.

This is about a gaming review website that compromised its journalistic integrity for maximum clickbait-generated revenue.
I don't think so. There's plenty of good and bad reviews, but they're all saying one thing: the game will be divisive. So let it be!

Maybe it will be a good game to use to cull review sites from your bookmarks.

The game looks boring as hell and he listed very good reasons for not liking it as much as others. Endless fetch quests plus a massive empty landscape is not for everyone.

Props to IGN for being honest. Every review I read is complaining about how "not fun" it is, frustrating and boring....but they end up giving it a 9 or 9.5 for "respect to kojima reasons". Just be honest and review it without bias.

Its a GOOD thing that AAA games like this, that for years have gotten a free pass for their many faults, are getting more thorough critiques. The overpraising of games such as this, just because they have a big name developer attached to them or millions was spent on development, that went on for many a year, is largely responsible for the decline in video game game-play quality. As it has enabled them to continue to get away with producing such mediocrity for far to long. I just wish more big name critics had the balls to point out the negatives that so many of these games exude.

I think rants against a review score would be better served with specific retorts to the substance of the review. Maybe calling it a clickbait review is warranted, and maybe not. All I know is OP doesn't like final score because other people rated the game higher. Without something specific, I have to agree this thread is more clickbait than the review at this juncture.

I will never understand why people get bent out of shape regarding opinions that are different than your own.

Do people sit there playing something they enjoy and think that it would be better if only X reviewer agreed?

Death stranding is going to be the first PlayStation exclusive game that I pass on and I buy all their stuff looks dumb looks boring so you're basically a package delivery man
A futuristic FedEx simulator wow I hope everyone that buys loves it but for me it's a pass I can't even advise a buy at full price im going to wait for a sale like 499 that's the price I bought the order 1887 at and I still haven't finished it
