Gotta love this mentality. Your opinion different from others? It's for the hits.
Not always, but we do see this. When a reviewer ignores objectively well executed games accomplishments because they are not fans of a series, or because is was not to their liking.


For example, I am not a fan of Monster Hunter, in any form. I have tried it several times, and it just was not to my taste. However, I recognize that it is well done for what it is setting out to be, and as a professional reviewer I would not rate it a 5 out of 10 because it is not for me.


Some don't do this. All should.

I am not one to think that reviewers are money hatted, I think that is for the tin foil wearing peeps. However, I do think in a world where a website lives or dies on clickbait, scores to games sometimes reflect this. Scoring an uber hyped game with an outlier low score almost guarantees web traffic.

I respect opinions, but if you try and tell me OoT, Uncharted 2, Halo CE, Mario Galaxy, or TLoU, etc, is a 4/10 game, you're wrong, and I am sorry.

I don't wan't it be a game bloated with pointless sidequests.
Never go OCD with collectibles and side quests in open world game if you aren't 100% sure you can handle it! That shit just ends up burning you out and game that is actually good RPG turns into sour experience. I went all in with that side stuff in DAI and still think it's good RPG experience.

Well I wouldn't say it was a bad game, but it had some annoying flaws which i hope the witcher 3 doesn't replicate.

I think it's pretty fortunate that the markets in Poland will be closed when the reviews hit... I mean, obviously it would be enormously irresponsible to analyze a person's body language when attempting to parse the meaning of a tweet, but at the same time, you need only take a quick glance at this image:



to register the defeat, resignation and bitter disappointment in this man's eyes. At this point, I'm genuinely concerned that W3's critical reception may actually jeopardize Poland's ongoing Eurozone accession proceedings.
