Smash Bros just for the lols.

@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.

#5 Posted by PrincessGomez92 (3800 posts) -

No.

#6 Posted by freedomfreak (43442 posts) -

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.

Im playing Dark Souls 1 for the first time and I want to make love to it.

on topic.... um, I can't say I truly want any games to score bad, but I recently played Killzone 2 and thought it was twiced baked shit. so the next one of that, I guess.

@charizard1605 oh and anything Lord of the Rings. garbage franchise. :P

On second thought, Bayonetta 2.

He just seems harsher is all.

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!"

Not something on the wiiu cuz we have like two sheep left on SW. I like to see blackace butthurt so i'd go with Halo 5 lol

#16 Posted by CleanPlayer (9822 posts) -

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

#17 Edited by Kuromino (1400 posts) -

I have no issues with Tom, but my answer is The Last of Us 2. =)

@finalfantasy94: He isn't so much harsh as others are generous.

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

ºJº That guy is the WORSE reviewer on GS, IMO.

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

I'd like to see Infamous score a nice solid decent 8.0 and see cows act like it's the end of the world.

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)

He dislikes games I like so therefore he's the worst reviewer ever.

#33 Posted by treedoor (7648 posts) -

I don't understand the hate this guy gets.

#34 Posted by nintendoboy16 (28044 posts) -

You know, I wonder if McShea regrets giving SMG2 a 10.

McShea and van Ord are my favourite reviewers on ANY gaming website.

Tom is an ok guy. Go f*** yourself, TC, for attacking people like this..

#39 Posted by RageQuitter69 (1366 posts) -

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).

#40 Posted by FoxbatAlpha (8987 posts) -

TLOU 2 ROFL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THAT WOULD BE PRICELESS!!!!!!!

I think they will send him on vacation the week that is getting reviewed.

#41 Posted by widdowson91 (1244 posts) -

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.

#42 Posted by withe1982 (450 posts) -

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.

#43 Posted by Link3301 (1829 posts) -

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

Dat white hot beacon of light and truth always gets through.... Oh and just for clarity, The Return of the King, which one all those fugazi accolades was Avatar bad... twiced baked shit sandwiches for everyone.

I've never minded his reviews.

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.

#48 Posted by ominous_titan (813 posts) -

Did this guy have all the hate before tlou review? Not that I disagreed with it ,I just can't get into naughty dog games.

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).
