@Xaero_Gravity: that actually reminds me of a yatzee review where he said he didn't have fun with the game and people went nuts so he made another video telling mocking them. lolz

None. Its stupid to wish a game to flop just because you dont like it.

McShea is one of the best, most consistent reviewers around; he has balls to use the full 10 point scale, and defined preferences. I would rather every reviewer actually review games like McShea does.

He's not harsher he's actually quite fair and always backs up his opinion even if they are weird at times. Take his problems with Joel, I have no idea where he got the impression that he was shady from, BUT, I can totally see why hating him would hurt the game.

The real problem is that gaming fans have become so focused on 9/10's that giving a game a 7 is like some sort of betrayal when actually, it's them saying "Hey, this game is good but there's a couple of issues, check it out if you're interested!"

I actually like McShea, he just gives his opinion and articulates all his points really clearly. People get their panties caught up in a bunch based off the lone numerical score. This also why I like Kotaku's review system the best

That must be a JOKE, right? Sarcasm, maybe?

I thought they just said YES or NO if you should play the game or not. I could be mistaken if they switched it

No, just no. The guy is so inconsistent even in the same reviews that he is the worst on the site combined with Carolyn

Seems more like it's been the Xbox fans insisting that the Playstation fans were actually hyped more than they voted to hype the game and are now upset it met said hype. So basically the same as ever for every exclusive in System Wars.

i think most of us knew infamous wasn't going to get an AAA. At least on this site. (after McShea was confirmed, at least)

Metal Gear Solid V, I don't know what but i'm sure that Kojima has another cash grabbing tactic up his sleeve considering what he did with the previous 2 games (4 and GZ).

I wouldn't want to see any game get "McShea'd". It's a stupid term anyway in my opinion, as I think Tom McShea is one of the best reviewers on the net. He just doesn't give a sh*t what anybody else thinks, he just reviews the game with his own honest opinion.

Going by TLOU review (8/10 for the most critically acclaimed game of gen 7) and the second chance Bioshock Infinite (4/10 is just a big joke) review I'd say he is stupidly harsh. But then you look at his review of Beyond 2 Souls (9/10 what!) and just realise he has no taste in games.

He's a hipster. What is worse is he's a really unfunny one with no taste. Terrible, terrible journalist. His writing is complete trash as well.

Other than that I bet he's a swell guy.

@charizard1605: I agree, he actually gives an opinion when he reviews, rather than give the fanboys their desired score.

Okay, now maybe instead of just hating on him for no reason, stop, think about it, and give me a well thought out post where you tell me exactly why you think he is inconsistent and so bad.

He takes out some parts of the game and ignores others as he see's fit in several of his reviews.

Yeah, he also flopped inFamous: Second Son and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

He also gave Uncharted 3 'only' a 9 (yes, people got mad about that).
