gamrReview: "Game review is not a joke, in fact I'd argue it's more credible than film review."
Can't say I'm convinced; I find film critics more credible.
Naturally I disagree. They may have more reputation, but film reviews are almost never in sync with their audience.
Fair point, I'd agree with that - they often ARE their audience - but Torillian below is right: film critics are more likely to actually be qualified.
Both have their flaws, both ultimately judge based on personal opinions backed by some fact in terms of technique, etc... But I will say game critics can be a bit platform bias based on preference... you dont see that with film.
Don't film critics usually go to school for film at least? I don't think most game reviewers went to school for game design. Thus I always have to give the nod to film critics for credibility.
