[Y] Game of the Year 2010 - Page 17  

post #161 of 173
[quote=CorkyFan;11774562]

To me, Citizen Kane is a mediocre film/story, but yet I easily recognize it is the best film ever made, and fully understand why most film critics also place it at the top of their Top XX lists. If I was like you and used my opinion to rank Citizen Kane, I would come off as a very nooby film critic. Instead, I rely on facts and hard evidence to form my choice that Citizen Kane is the best film ever made.

That's the difference between me and you. Your lists are blindly created based on your opinion of what your favourite trend is at the moment. My lists are based not on my opinion, but on facts and hard evidence.

lonely up there on that high horse?

are you aware of what a critic is?

Quote:
A critic is anyone who expresses a value judgement. Informally, criticism is a common aspect of all human expression and need not necessarily imply skilled or accurate expressions of judgement.
i dont need a fancy degree to recognise something is S**T, for example there is nothing about the movie Mortal Kombat Annihilation that you can tell me is good. but if one "critic" with a fancy degree said it was an awesome film my opinion would be worthless?

take a step back mate we are all opinionated.

Meh, I dont agree with WoW or Dance Central being up there. Aside from that, everything is fine imo except in the wrong order.

NFS:Hot Pursuit is fun by all means but nothing to write home about.

I suppose I should feel embarrassed for thinking that it did a good job between acknowledging the high sellers like Black Ops and WoW and praising the good games. A friend of mine praises Dance Central as the game he wanted Dance Dance Revolution to be, Limbo is fantastic, and pretty much every other game they mention is a game I've heard nothing but good things about (except for Enslaved, which I'm only familiar with as a really good band). That said, I won't comment on the order they put the games in.

agreed.

To see Black Ops low on the list was very good.
Limbo was a fantastic game especially for one that was indie made.
Dance Central is a pretty good game too - significant on the motion controller front because it actually has some quality behind it.

Although I don't agree on Cataclysm. Mainly because I hate WoW inside and out, but also because I've heard very split things about it from hardcore players.

I agree. The list was picked on sales numbers or editor(s) picks. Doesn't deserve daylight (or this post)

Halo even being on the list leaves a putrid taste in my mouth.
post #168 of 173
Halo Reach? Get out of here. Dance Central is fun, but no way is it over SC2. GT5 just came out and it's really high in the rankings. Mass Effect 2 was super good!

I chose to include it because its a fun song to dance to. Hip Hop doesn't need to constantly be message driven and always have a social or political point. The double standards of society might convince some otherwise but there's nothing wrong with a party song.

When criticizing hip hop, people conveniently forget just how meshed 'Drugs, Sex & Rock&Roll' were with each other.

Now minus rep yourself for assuming because you just made an a__ out of yourself.

I never said that theres anything wrong with a party song - but that crap isn't a party song! in any sense of the word.

*If you think rap sucks or isn't "real music", quit being pretentious and go sample something that isn't on the radio:*
and you wonder why people hate rap & hip hop its because of songs like that, people arent being pretentious there being smart, you dont encourge stupidity!

repeating the same line over and over isn't a party song - if your defenition of a party song is anything thats annoying, repeatitive and without any merit then you hit the nail on the head.

I believe the phrase is Sex Drugs and Rock 'n' Roll.... if your going to critise at least get your phrase correct.
Using that song as a defence you must be clutching at straws.
