I see that Journey still holds the title of being the James Cameron's Avatar of video games.

Considering how successful Avatar was this is a compliment to Journey.

Sure, if that's how you want to interpret it. I mean, both received critical and commercial success despite being shallow pieces of garbage, and both made me seriously question anyone's mental health if they were somehow brought to tears by such shit, but sure whatever, it's a compliment.

Avatar was praised mainly for its technical merits, whereas Journey is praised for pushing the medium (which really isn't saying much.)

Disagree on their merits all you want, but your comparison doesn't stand.

yeah.... they had the perfect opportunity to re-evaluate that 8/10 score with the release of the Remastered PS4 port....

it doesnt matter if scores are arbitrary, the point is im trying to figure out the logic and deal with GS and there reviews. Because the reality is that the give out scores and they will continue to give out scores.

This is Vanord, not some group.

The notion that a piece can't be re-evaluated over time is absolutely ludicrous. This can be applied for books, film, music, etc. Just look at the initial reviews of the lauded pieces within these mediums and you'll see this is the case. A score shouldn't be set in stone.

And being butthurt over The Last of Us has more-so to do with the reviewer than some limited guidelines you're holding against it.

Since when can remasters get 10s?

these.

Makes me wonder why TLoU:R stayed at the original review score of 8/10 for the PS4 review...

Also, Kevin is leaving? holy shit.... he was the last rational sensible and truthful reviewer around here.

Because scores are essentially arbitrary and a game can be re-evaluated on its own terms over time.

Scorsese, and it's not even close.

Scorsese's films are brilliant in every way imaginable. Tarantino hasn't made a good movie in 20 years.

But lol at this.
