Game reviews are broken?

“It’s no Painkiller.”

Which I’m replaying as Hell Wars is out and all, and man, this one didn’t hold up well at all. No wonder I never finished.

That’s usually how I read Tom’s reviews. ;)

I think it’d be entertaining to see every final score simply reframed into Lebowski quotes.

For instance:

God damn you EA! You fuckin’ asshole! Everything’s a fuckin’ travesty with you, man! And what was all that shit about WWII? What the FUCK, has anything got to do with WWII? What the fuck are you talking about?

Ok … maybe not. But final scores and bottom lines are always listless and devoid of fun these days.

Well, I have always liked instead of giving a game a 'score" for the lazy people and for the “box cover”, a pros and cons section at the end. So first the reviewer talks about the general This game is about catching fish with a bazooka." Then he discusses everything good and bad, and at the end they have a pros and cons section, which is absically a sum of what he just said in bullet style format. Those I can usually take in… aybe the numbers part needs to go away? If it’s for lazy people, fuck em. And if it’s for the box, fuck that too. Any reasons why not?

Because us small guys who take away the scores have a lot of trouble getting access. :/

Oinkfs, can we apply the Lebowski theory to the horrible horrible ear destruction known as “EA Trax”?

I use a binary review scale: everything either rocks or sucks.

I wish CGW’s experiment with no scores worked but the “me no wanna read and think” crowd won.

You’re surprised? Myspacers determine the way things go in the real fucking world at this point. I’m amazed I haven’t had to replace numbers with a smiley face or a frowny face, as if this were kindergarten.

Either the game get’s a or it doesn’t. Now that’s a review system.

I like how reading a game review is a definitive measure of erudition. I give this thread an 2.75.
