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.

Spectator12221d ago

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.

Torillian2221d ago (Edited 2221d ago )

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.
