[PCG] Modern Warfare 3 dev attempts to boost Metacritic score via Twitter - Page 3

post #21 of 54
It shouldn't matter what he or anyone says about it, if it's going to score low a pep talk isn't going to change that. If he gets diciplined over this then that would be just silly. Besides that anyone with thier own brain knows not to trust review scores anyway.

This

Plus, I generally don't listen to metacritic scores these days anyway. The score is weighted depending on the Critic, so IGN's score will have more of an affect on the total score than say Gamekult. Not really accurate way of doing it - plus in most cases IGN are ignorantly stupid so it makes the scores even more void.

A lot of people are really pissed that CoD keeps releasing the same game every year, so they rated it low to express their frustration (obviously). No, on a fair scale CoD doesn't "deserve" the rating, but it's not "just trolls" who gave it that rating, it's frustrated gamers.

These are user reviews.. which I'm relatively sure aren't weighted. Plus, "ignorantly stupid"? What exactly is IGN ignorant about (please no more IGNorant jokes)?

This is what COD game development is based on though... Same as guitar hero, and look where that franchise is. Activision under Kotick cares more for the money than the idea.

I know - that is what I'm trying to explain. I'm using the death of Guitar Hero as an example of 'if games continued to follow along this path it will lead to a recession in gaming'.

Since when does having fun in a game define someone as a sheeple?

Having fun in a game does not make you sheeple.

Does diversity even matter anymore?

Ask the developer and publisher of this billion dollar game you're defending. Seems like an appropriate question for them.

While your opinion of the game is important...Your judgement of them isn't necessary.

Thanks. Your opinion is also important. Your defense of them isn't necessary.


sheeple is the mass of drones who keep flocking to the product more and more because the last one was popular and everyone they knew was on it except them. The game is about as fun as the last 3. And in a world where time moves forward and the cost of each new iteration remains the same, you may as well enjoy the last one you picked up. I don't know if you qualify as "sheeple". Maybe you do and maybe you don't. As a stand alone game, a big budget game, a military shooter, a fps compared to competing products (mostly the last few games in it's series) would you honestly give this game some bright, shinning review? Is it great? I used to have loads of fun on some of the worst, crappiest games ever. I was never confused enough to mistake my own enjoyment for the games overall quality. Face this one is a stinker. A fun stinker for some, many people, but a stinker none the less.

Kind of funny, Battlefield is getting mass-spammed ratings for privacy infringement and whatnot, MW is getting mass-spammed because it's a bad game.


Back to the OP,
The way I see it is this:

Company A makes great game, let's call it Game X, it's a best seller. Game critics give it 10/10
One year later, Company A releases Game X 2. Game X 2 is literally just Game X with a different name, one changed hat, and a different logo. All for another $60.

How do critics review Game X 2?Technically, the game itself is still "worth" 10/10.. but they've already seen it, and the few changes are embarrassingly irrelevant. This is an exaggeration to be sure, but it illustrates a point.

MW2 to the masses was a great game (personally didn't care for it), and MW3 is pretty much MW2, but that doesn't automatically make MW3 a great game. I don't agree with the assertion that every game should be reviewed out of context with no consideration of its predecessors.

wow. he's asking for it to be even lower.

done. just gave MW3 a 0
