I was watching this video review response to gamer feedback bashing the reviewer for giving Max Payne 3 an 8 out of 10 . Last time I checked, an 8 out of 10 was a pretty good score. The reviewer reads some of the virgin force comments from angry Rockstar fans left on his page. One commenter was 'crying in anger'.
This reminded me of the laughable nerd rage about gamespot's Skyward Sword review
and the insane disappointment of gamespot's Uncharted 3 which had a lot of readers complaining about the 9.0 rating.
I can somewhat understand gamer's anticipation for AAA titles but why do gamers get so emotional and sensitive about an opinion or critique about a game they will still buy and support anyway?
Even worse, if a game receieves an 8 / 9 out of 10 or 4 / 5 stars, isn't that a good thing?
I thought gamers only commented idiotic, angry feedback about why they're most anticpated game scored a measley 9 out of 10. When that reviewer in the Max vid said people were emailing him insults about his opinion on the game, it made me wonder just how pathetic and insane some gamers really are to be that angry over a game review.
