    These are the review scores for Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, one of the best Paper Mario games in the series. *Zooms in on the score Game Informer gave the game* What. The. Hell. :mad:

  • So, I get it. Someone said a really good game is shit, and your first reaction is "WTF? What are they smoking!?" and that's a legit reaction.


    Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut.


    Reviews are only good if the reviewer gives the score they think the product truly deserves. If we start holding reviewers to our own opinions, or to the opinion of the masses, then we've already corrupted the process. There's functionally no difference between a reviewer giving a game a good score because it's popular, and a reviewer giving a game a good score because they were paid to do so.

    True, but it's weird seeing a game a ton of people like have 1 mixed review. It's something you wouldn't expect to see, you know? But, everyone does have their own opinions.
