@hornedturtle If review sites like IGN are going to give themselves such pinpoint scores on a +/- scale of 0.1 then giving a 10/10 to GTA V is pretty much them saying it's perfect, instead of like, I don't know, a 9.6 or whatever. Pure corporate shills, and a '10/10' on a box cover looks perfect to the average consumer. It's not journalistic integrity, it's flat out bribery.

The game doesn't deserve a '10/10', no game does really and it disgusts me when so many people hand that kind of score out because it nullifies any critcism.


On that note, feminism also has no place infecting the game industry, I'm sick of it popping up everywhere now since Anita Sarkeesian came into the light, who gives a **** about misogyny in a god damn GTA game? This kind of thing should not affect a review score, are you going to lower the score even more because Trevor isn't an attractive muscular male too?

This is all you need to see for the EA conference.

Also, one more message for the people who are angry over the game not getting a 10 from GS: Who of you has actually played the game?

None of you?

Hm, what's the definition of bias again?

@milsvaard I don't condone any website giving a game a 10/10.

The reason it's such an ill-advised score to give, is because it's a 'professional' critics job to analyse a game and render a judgement based on its positives and negatives, giving it a 10 nullifies ANY criticism they gave the game, not to mention it's what most people only care about (really looks good on the box cover too).

Lol at people slamming this guy for giving an honest opinion about a game.

Would you rather head over to IGN to see their "10/10!" which is a disgraceful score for a 'professional' game journalist.

@GGCrew_basic I don't think they said anything about optimisation, they said the graphical quality wasn't a huge leap over the console version and that it played better with a controller (which PC users have the option of using).

I don't get it Gamespot, you praise it for having all the pros of a PC version > Console version while also stating that all versions have the same negatives (gameplay wise), yet you gave it 1.5 less than the console versions?

Anybody who keeps buying these games year after year are responsible for the death of gaming.
