First Dragon's Crown and now GTAV... I am not even a GTA-fan, I don't even care for the series but... I find this "trend" Polygon is starting rather retarded. B-b-but Mysgonist games!! Let's give it a poor rating! DERP! Piss off really.

Marking a game down for NOT doing something it never claimed it would do, marking it down for staying true to it's predessors, marking it down for being a current gen game...what an absolute waste of a review site.

I can't tell if it's fake because it reads exactly like something Polygon would write.

I can just picture the far ugly feminist who wrote this review.
#14 Posted by psymon100 (6138 posts) -

I read the text of the article. 

Reminds of someone once who wrote a review of a vaginal birth. They slandered it, because it contained a vaginal birth of a human, which they deemed disgusting. 

Tasteless or not, this is an inappropriate way to review this particular game as it's content has been chosen purposefully. I understand the sentiments of this reviewer, but they're crazy. They are using their position as a reviewer to soapbox. Saying what publishers / developers should / shouldn't put on their boxes - they're insane. 

The type of people who play GTA probably want to know more about things like the vehicle handling, behaviour of NPCs, types of guns, weapon realism on NPCs, campaign quality (but from someone sane), and so on; though I am only guessing as I am not interested in GTA5 at all.

Terrible review. And equality FTW.

Obviously.

#18 Posted by rjdofu (9170 posts) -
ok, that's the PS3 version, where's the 360 version?
#19 Posted by ManatuBeard (935 posts) -

With the parameters they are using for the review, it seems a very fair score.

Im sure that other sites that wont focus so much in sexuality or story for their reviews will give higher scores.

It all depends on the point of view of the reviewer, and being subjective, it wont change your experience with the game.

I know its fake, but the sad thing is, I wouldnt be surprised if this is what Polygon actually posted lol.
#21 Posted by homeboylizard (1289 posts) -

Giving it a lower score for something it doesn't have...but never claimed that it will have? Reminds me of Google Play reviews!

considering how poor polygon's reviews tend to be and the fact they said SR4 is a better game just honestly makes me want to puke my guts up that was easily the worst game i've bought this year.
#27 Posted by LA-Nighthawk (5 posts) -
Why pick on Polygon? It's one of the better gaming sites right now, with great feature materials and their site is very pretty.

Wow a huge game world like GTA and thats all they have for their review? They need to really stop writing reviews, it told me absolutely nothing about the game. Worst review I've ever read.
#29 Posted by Martin_G_N (1698 posts) -
They are complaining about the characters not being females and homosexuals....that says everything about this review.
#30 Posted by Trail_Mix (2021 posts) -

So this is fake? With that SR4 touting at the end, I can't help but think that.

But even in that case it's really, really badly written. A last gen game looks last gen ? :|

It's supposed to be badly written, lol. I mean, "misogyny", can't be more obvious that this is a spin at the Dragon Crown infamous review.

plus, it's called a "wrap up". it's not the whole review, it's the closing thoughts. but yeah, i wouldn't be surprised if the real review was similar.

Oh yeah, never looked into that review and the response to it much. But if that's the case it's a pretty good parody :P

Polygon flopping this game would cause an even bigger outrage among gamers. Which is a damn shame, because people shouldn't focus so much on scores and just enjoy the game themselves.

Great review.

#37 Posted by TheEroica (13297 posts) -
Don't think I've ever read a more misguided review in my life... The stance on women made me wonder if this was fake?

so what the reviewer wants is a politically correct grand theft auto game?
#45 Posted by MBirdy88 (7628 posts) -
Why the f*ck do sexist related stuff make it so big at the minute? WHY CANT SOME GAMES CATER TOWARDS MOSTLY MEN. fkin hell. lets ban all womans magazines shall we?
#46 Posted by Raziel831991 (460 posts) -

This review is clearly fake. Considering how much hype this game has there is no way they are giving this anything lower then a 9/10 and if it does have sexism like the other GTA games they will just overlook it. In fact I wouldnt be suprised if Rockstar already paid reviewers in order to get a high metacritc score for GTA V (In b4 Raziel831991 is a conspiracy theorist).

We call you conspiracy theorist because you don't have any actual proof for shit like the Illuminati, while everything points to it being disbanded 2 centuries ago.

there were never disbanded. disbanded one was different organization to show world that its disbanded. to counter it. so they can do the work and ppls will think they are not exist anymore..
