2 reviews today came in at 80.
Is Death's Stranding excluded from this year's VGA?I know. I don't really put much stock in other awards at this point. If you really trust one publication, that's cool. But TGA is a panel of judges across the industry. I don't go by sheer number of awards. Since any tiny blog gets counted now-a-days. In that sense, I'm sure almost every game wins a GOTY awards from someone.
I don’t think there is anything weird about that.
As Shairi said before me, games came out since Gears 4, outstanding ones. Standards have changed. If Gears 4 would be reviewed again today it wouldn't score the same.
You can't respect someone who doesn't have the same video game preferences as you?Personally for me it's a 90. I think the acting/story are better than ever, graphics are great, gameplay is improved, increased options and Jack customizations are great. MP is TBD right now but from what I played from the beta it's smoother than ever. I know and respect that it's not everyone's cup of tea but I can't respect any reviewer that gives this LT 80.
I have much respect for games in all categories. Give me a polished puzzle game and I'd rate it well. Same for a racer. Same for a JRPG. I just can't see someone walking into a review for this with an open mind and hit it with a 60.
You need to realize that people have different opinions from you and that you should respect that opinion if it is well thought out and detailed. Which many of these reviews are.
I can. It would just mean they didn't enjoy the game very much, and no amount of polish can change that.
Look at it this way fellas: I walked into that low review and I reviewed that reviewer as a 60. They just weren't for me. I didn't enjoy their review.
Well that's totally fine, but making that jump to a loss of respect is what's tripping me up.
Eh. 80 is a good score. You could have very little to complain about, but just not love the game enough to go higher.What really grinds my gears (and no, pun not intended) is when the review is outstanding and praising the game non-stop.
Then the score is an 80/100 for some reason with barely a mention of any flaws found. Reminds me of being graded in highschool and seeing one "needs more references" red mark and yet an 82 percentage.
Back on topic, the 87 dream aint dead just yet, just bumpy. I believe.
Fair enough. I personally would have gone for a 88-89.Yea but here's the thing, they are not reviewing the game of 2016 merits. Its being reviewed off of 2019 merits. Gears 4 would never get a 84 in 2019.
So to say that just because Gears 5 and Gears 4 have the same score, doesn't mean that both games are equal in terms of quality.
not someone who gave it a 6/10, I mean you really got to just look at every negative and not any positive. IMO thats a peep wanting attention, knowing they would get it, with a certain crowd, by posting a 6/10 review, his comment on twitter kinda show, he wanted shock factor.
If they gave it a 2/10 or something like that, sure. 6/10 is not exactly far from the 7's and 8's that the game has been getting. I wonder if you say the same about reviewers giving it a 10/10 seeing as that's an outlier too.not someone who gave it a 6/10, I mean you really got to just look at every negative and not any positive.

Id agree generally on this point but that single review and his actions after words speak to him wanting a reaction.
Not fall off, from 7 or 8?, this whole thread is it not hitting .4 higher for the magical 9.0 number.
It is Gears and an MS IP. I see no way that they could have hit the 90's, the cache isn't there. It being 2 points below Spiderman is better than I expected. At the end of the day it is what it is enjoy the game and play it. I'm still surprised that the user score is so high.not someone who gave it a 6/10, I mean you really got to just look at every negative and not any positive.

0.5, and the game has still been getting 7's and 8's. That is a fact.
I've seen 2 6/10's and 1 6.5/10 from this thread. I understand about the reviewer in question but the person I quoted was generalizing everyone that gives the game a 6/10.
if I reviewed a sports game I wouldn't enjoy it, and it could be the best sports game ever and if I only scored it on my enjoyment it'd receive a 3/10. At that point I shouldn't be the one reviewing that game, and I'd say the same of anyone who enjoyed Gears 5 that little
I sure hope DOOM Eternal doesn't get bogged down due to mp.
Thanks for clarifying. That is good to know.
I'm surprised anyone would ever show up for something like that, that is a weird fucking thing to ask other people to do.Back on the board that shall not be mentioned, I use to ask people that made posts likes to join my party.
I don't waste my time anymore, but 9 times out of 10 they wouldn't/couldn't show up. LOL
I think you're actually playing the game though, so it's not a shot saying you aren't.
yes i think you are right
so is't fair to Give it 6 ???
