I’ve played a ton of games in my life, and I can tell you that I’ve read a lot of corresponding game reviews. Do I trust ’em? No. Like most things, you’ve gotta take what they say with a grain of salt. Some websites need the whole fuckin’ can of Morton salt. When it rains it most definitely pours.
I do agree that games these days aren’t too cheap, and most people are loathe to waste their money on a game that sucks. Fair enough. That’s the million dollar question right there. Does the game suck? And what criteria do you base a game’s “suckage” on?
Sites like IGN, Metacritic, and countless others have their own criteria to judge a game’s suckiness. I say, “FUCK THAT”. Besides, you’ve got other factors like advertisement, time constraints, and player bias clouding the review (that shit can’t be helped, really).
Here’s my criteria for a game.
IS IT FUN? It’s a simple question that requires one of two answers. Yes, or no.
Let’s be real, we all play videogames, watch anime, or read comics because we’re bored and we need something to pass the time. Fuck the bullshit, if the game is fun, we’ll let you know. Real talk.
