Where's the XBox One option in the poll. GTA V will never come to the Wii U. :roll:

I don't know, Carolyn probably wouldn't be much interested with Baker.

A 9 isnt a generous score. A generous score would be a score thats more than the game deserves.

If GTAIV didn't get a 10, the GTA mob wouldn't be complaining.

after she said it was sexist i wouldnt say she should get fired she just lose all credibility to me as a reviewer of this game so i went to diffrent sites

Why?

#25 Posted by deeliman (2537 posts) -

I think the people who are threathening carolyn petit are the ones that give gamers a bad rep. It's just an opinion, that does not warrant death threats in any way.

Classic videogamer logic "this review doesn't fall in line with what I think so I'll search until I find one that does"

Theres far worse things in the game than misogyny. Reviews should be about execution not subject matter. It would be like a reviewer lowering the score of Pulp Fiction because they got upset about Travoltas character criticising piercings. Totally unprofessional. Its a troll review designed to get attention.

Gamespot gave Far Cry 3 and Metro Last Light 9's and while those are good games they cant hold a candle to GTA V. Again, a troll review. Shame to see a big site like Gamespot resorting to these tactics.

I still have to know, please tell me is Carolyn Petit for real? Or is Carolyn Petit just a Persona created by gamespot staffers?

I need to know before I proceed with any opinion on Carolyn Petit's review so I don't overstep the rules and get banned...*I keep refering to the reviewer by name because I personally refuse to call someone the sexual orientation they wish to be called*

Because it would have to be a 1000 year convergence not only for GTA V to release but Gamespot to hire a Feminist transgender-ed person to review it. So its either Coincidence or a Gamespot plan.

I wouldn't think it's such a big deal that they would go the effort to do that.

Eh seems like they got a huge bump in hits solely because of the review, and its mind boggling for quite a few folks on how exactly this person was tasked with reviewing what was essentially made to offend someone of that persons group, motto...etc

That's like saying they picked Jeff Gerstmann to review Zelda TP for Wii because he was not as thin as the other guys.

:lol: I suppose that a conspiracy theorist could have some fun with the circumstances surrounding this review... Gamespot is certainly a business and those behind the scenes most certainly exist to create hits for the site and the advertising... that said, It is one review among many glowing reviews that chose not to take issue with the satire the game provides. I absolutely think that a gamer has the right to take Carolyn to task over the misogyny bit, especially when comparing it to other reviews, but outside of that, her review and others mean nothing once you have the game in your disk tray.

Side note- After several missions, both side and main, I have encountered only one legitimate piece of male stereotyping of women, which was a political radio commercial from the woman running for office, boasting that her ability to complain and nag makes her the best candidate... I suppose if you don't have a sense of humor you could take issue with it, but... um really?

bullshit that analogy doesn't fit at all. Rampant violence, sexual situations, homosexual jokes and near transgender slamming have all been present in GTA for a long time, and whom do they pick to review GTA 5 a game that pushes the limit like no GTA before it? A transgender-ed person *atleast I'm assuming so* there was no reason beyond garnering hits for tasking such a person to review this type of game and specifically this game, The sheer fact that Misogyny was even mentioned in the review is incredibly circumspect and shows that the reason this person was chosen to review it simply spans from the rampant matriarchal push we've seen by the likes of feminists such as Sarkessian, and the recognition by gamespot and CBS staff that such views and attitudes garner hits.
