LOL at all the cows trying to convince others reviews are anything other than opinions. An opinion is wrong because THEY don't agree with it hahahaha.
Cows are such losers bwhahahahaha
Opinions don't have default levels of respect or credibility. Opinions can be informed, or uninformed. Some can, in fact, just be plain wrong. It's time we collectively got past this intellectually bankrupt excuse of "it's just their opinion, man". Yes, everyone has the right to their opinion, but no one has the right to be right, and we get to have an opinion on the validity of their opinion.
I know she is a decent person, she USED to be a member of the community and a fellow moderator way back in the day. But even though I know she is a decent person, I can honestly say she was a AWFUL reviewer. It's a fact of life that when you are just plain bad at your job, you will lose your job. (unless your dad owns the company or something) But you can't express this kind of view without simple minded dingleberries lumping you with other people and saying "LuLz u just mad dat yer game got a *insert term score*".
Or in the case of one overwhelmingly self righteous person in this thread "You are happy someone lost their job because they had a different opinion about an electronic toy than you did, for SHAME". It's an intellectually dishonest smear job. If you frequent an establishment and one particular employee there is just TERRIBLE at their job and ruins your experience every time you visit it, and FINALLY after a long time they get what's coming to them and get fired… yeah… you are damn right I'm going to be happy they were fired.
Hell, my issues with Tom's reviews started with the FIRST Infamous game. He rated that game a 9. It was just an exceptionally badly written review that did an awful job justifying how he arrived at the score he gave it. I don't hate either of these people. I don't rejoice in their termination because they "disagreed with me about a toy", I am rejoicing in this because they were just absolutely terrible writers who have actively contributed to a steep decline in the quality of the services I get from what has been my go to gaming site since 2001.
But no, by all means, just claim I'm only upset that some trivial number wasn't as high as I thought it should be. Considering the actual truth obviously makes some of you very uncomfortable, by all means, stay in the smug self righteous echo chamber you've made for yourself so you can feel morally superior.
You mean as cows have said. Cows =/= the entire forum or the majority.
There is no wrong or right in any of the TLOU reviews. They both gave their opinions on the game and scored according to what THEY thought it deserved. We get it, cows didn't like it or agree but who cares what cows think. They would have complained if the game got a 9 and said it deserved a 10. Cows love to complain and this forum is reminded of it every single day.
I'm not sure what you're even trying to do. Games have been and always will be subjective. 1 person might love a game and give it a 10 while another might not and give it a 7. In end who cares what reviewers say since the ultimate judge will be you.
Seriously, why does it piss you off if they interjected their personal beliefs or opinions in the reviews? It's just a review and a one you don't have to pay for. BTW fired and laid off aren't the same.
