I find some of the suggestions for the metacritic/gameranking scores humorous. 75% is favorable? Really? Only bargain bin Cabela's Big Game Hunter type shit gets scored below 70%. Dyack made a thread calling out several posters and definitely *sounds* quite confident in his game. The terms of the bet should reflect that confidence. A 75% average is NOT confidence.
There are plenty of *good* games that score in the 75% range, and plenty that score even less. 75% *should* be favorable, but hey I'm no metacritic pro since I ignore 99% of all reviews. But no, a 75% is not brag-worthy, but it's not a bad game by any means.
As the producer i honestly think you're completely discrediting your team with this immature stance on your game. If the game turns out good word of mouth will sell this game to the faithful. Now you're just giving people another reason to be turned off by your products.
It seems almost stupid-unlikely that this game will have a metacritic aggregate of over 90%, no matter how good it is. The development history is just divisive enough for a token critic who's been following these scandalous turns of events to use the review platform as an excuse to bitch out Dyack.
The other problem, though, is that I highly doubt the game will get under 80% because SK has a pretty high level of basic competency despite what some of you sons of bitches think, so that toss-up buffer doesn't work because it's pretty much the most plausible outcome, which sucks the fun out of the whole thing.
Who wants to bet he's had one of his programmers make an app to cull the FOR and AGAINST posts and make a list? I can imagine his secretary forced to write all the names down in columns on a massive white board as he strokes his chin, yelling "Faster!".
Holy shit, Dyack what the fuck are you doing man? :lol
I want this game to be good - I think it's pretty stupid that a lot of GAF posters (even the mods and admins) want this game to fail and have such a hatred for it. Just like with Treyarch/CoD5, I'm rooting for the underdogs (developers in this case).
We all know Too Human won't score a 90% average though, that's much too safe of a bet. Seems like a pretty high criteria for a game that people here troll as "complete shit". 80% would be a lot more interesting.
Glad to see a decent response so far. We may have to "Wambulance" for all the mods claiming the internet is not F41R!
The currency is the tag and metascore is the metric - don't try to change the bet. All those "for" and "against" get their tags changed. To all the mods - pick your meta score. Here is some troll reference from your camp to save you time:
Haze (PS3) Avg Ratio: 57%
Lair (PS3) Avg Ratio: 56%
Don't go to high or you may show your true colors. No more crying, no more trolling, just pick. I would suggest the tag stay for 6 months but I am pretty easy on that.
The "Against" seem in the minority so it should not take you too long to change the tags.
