Its not about specific game score ... Is about overall scores from Tom mc Shea. He even went that far to give Bioshock Infinite a 4 ... Not 6-7 or 8.. but 4.
This guy is out his mind and i cant take him serious. He is constantly OFF with scoring. Bad or good.

@AzatiS lol 4
But it's just his opinion so we aren't allowed to criticize. I wish I had that kind of job security.

@rawkstar007 Well, being a good games editor depends on your writing skills and your expertise in gaming stuff but not on your very own opinion and taste. His job security has nothing to do with having an odd opinion (if you think so, and I do as well...) but with his skills as writer.... ;)
That's true enough. Tom is a decent enough writer and editor in his reviews. But do you remember that spoiler cast he did for TLoU that came out after his review? He did not articulate his case very well in that debate forum. Good writing skills doesn't equate to good debate skills, I guess.
I am not turning off adblock to watch videos on here, screw you gamespot.
@jon_bone i've got adblock on, works fine.
Rented this and came to the conclusion that what little game play there is isn't very good and that if the story was actually made into a movie, at best it would be a SyFy movie that wasn't edited and went on for waaaay too long. Yeah, I realize now this genre isn't for me.
QTE games are created for the casual gamer, so I can see this getting a high review from the casual gamers at gspot. Seems like quantic dream can only make QTE games and tech demo's. Well at least we know what Ryse will be like on the Xbone.
@kutulu1 A) Quantic Dream isn't making Ryse. B) Ryse isn't a QTE game, it's a game that has OPTIONAL QTEs in it - not the same as God of War with mandatory QTEs.
Fucking a people get a mind of your own and stop taking this that far ....personally i don't even pay attention to reviews and scores any more because...Spoilers.....so plz get over yourself its at the point where people aren't even talking about the game any more just its score....and as usual johnny you make a pile of shit comments hillariously awesome another good episode :P !
I totally agree. That guy that made the long comment at the end must be insane. Certifiable, even.
@rawkstar007 Hahahaha, I definitely agree on Bioshock Infinite. I mean, I AM one of the guy who think that BS Infinite was overrated and its issues were widely overlooked (story, characters, combat, interactivity,...) but a 4/10? Wow, that's just the reaction of a pissed child because Infinity is not as good as the beloved Bioshock. It's like: hey, HL 2 is not THAT good as HL, so **** it! Let's give it a 4/10 because I'm pissed..... xD
@LordCrash88 There really weren't combat issues in BSI. Anyone who cries about the combat is bad at games - the combat sequences were almost always too short to bring any "flaws" to light. Literally the only point in that game at which the combat felt annoying was when you had to skyhook onto an airship and you didn't figure that out at first.
Shame that you have to turn off adblock
The fact that "Gone Home" get's a 9.5 and this doesn't is silly.
Who the **** scores Bioshock Infinite 4.0? Lol
User Lists: 8
@lilflipp Gone Home requires attention and exploration skills . This doesn't , this is press A to win .
@Cloud_imperium @lilflipp More accurately this is press left stick gently to the right to win, press X to jason. Oh right different "game". Sorry.
these videos load but they are just so slow...its like the old days of youtube where it would just stop half way lol

@wildamnesia Just had to explain why I was laughing so hard in the office.

@wildamnesia was that supposed to be funny ?
@wildamnesia this comment > your random comment.
Love this game!! Totally deserves a 9.0!! Oh, and haven't played it yet! :)
Very simple fix to adblock and adblock plus users with chrome. I think they work pretty much the same, I use adblock plus. But anyway, just simpley remove adblock plus or adblock from your chrome apps and then re-add (re-install) them from the chrome app store. And vuala, No More Commercials!!! Just straight to the video again : P
Can't wait to play, people are saying that is similar to Heavy Rain, then I'm in. Heavy Rain was one of the best games from this current gen IMO.
@jocaju You funny.
Then new site sucks ass, none of the vids are woking
@LordOtman Turn off your adblock buddy.
We shouldn't have to.

beyond the heavy rain, lies two souls...part 3
Yup - videos won't work unless you exclude Gamespot in the permissions list for Adblock.
Apart from that, site looks cool - No big deal.
@ecurl143 This and other GS videos have been playing fine for me. I'm on chrome and using AdBlock and I never had to touch/fix anything. AB says its blocking 3 things on this page right now.
@69 @ecurl143 Yeah, I'm using chrome with adblock but I've had to allow the ads to view videos.
I've heard tons of other people having the same problem, so it's not an isolated example.
It just seems to be hit and miss, so if you've got away with it, consider yourself lucky at this point.
Dunno what I need to do though to reactivate it though but it can be a pain in the arse.
Did you create a scandal just so you could talk about the scandal and getting other people talking about the scandal?
Feels increasingly like you are trolling your own readers. Get's really boring fast.
I figured out the secret to the adblock problem!!! Very easy fix lol
If you really have found a genuine fix then how about you share it with the rest of us instead of just rubbing our faces in it without having the common decency to back up a single thing you've said?
@dogman12602 So did I! I watch the videos and comment on them in IE, where they work for some reason, and do everything else about this site in Chrome, where everything else works for some reason! LOL
Can we do a Feedbacula about the GameSpot site upgrade next week??
FFS NONE OF VIDEOS ARE LOADING!! FIX SITE FFS!!
@felixmdx Clear your browser cache and do a hard refresh of the page (control + shift + r)
@felixmdx They work if you have Adblock disabled.
i think heavy rain was better than beyond. i am on my second playthru on beyond and some parts of the game are just pure boring
hate the new site layout. I am going to gametrailers way more often now just because the new site design
lol 4.0 for Bioshock infinite is a bit ridiculous but people shouldn't get their panties in a knot.
Even if he is trying to be controversial your only making him laugh with all these comments.
@uglypinkmoose 4.0 is beyond ridiculous. Read GameSpots explicit descriptions of their reviewing system. 4.0 is reserved for a literally broken game. A game filled to the brim with glitches, incoherent gameplay, performance issues, horrible story, etc.
BioShock Infinite, nor 1 or 2, are any of those adjectives.
GameSpot does this horse shit - they claim to follow and use this rubric but then rate games with utter disregard to their own procedures the same way I would write a review on my site saying in depth how bad a game is, and then still give it a 7.
That's why it's completely fucking ridiculous, not to mention the game is a 7.75 at absolute worst.
@Grenadeh Well I think most of the reviewers do their job just fine.
And his redonk review of Bioshock wasn't even the one the site used it was only his personal opinion.
Bioshock Infinite has a 9.0 from this site officially.
I just don't think it's worth rioting over ignore it or go to another site
Cant watch this on iPad
I don't care about the game. This "new" gamespot interface is confusing as hell...
Gamespot gave Beyond a 9, IGN gives it a 6, it has 75 on Gamerankings. I'm so confused.
@stage4saiyan 9+6/2=7.5 !! See what averages can do?!
