Why do review scores say 2012 has been a disappointing year?

MMGN: So where does the fault lie, if there is any? Are we collectively less enthusiastic about big, shiny and new and are becoming more critical? Are publishers betting on safe games since the console generation is taking so long?

B*ll*cks to the reviews, I've had a very good gaming year.

That pic is pretty misleading. One one of the games pictured got poor reviews, and one hasn't been reviewed yet.

I assume you're talking about Twisted Metal? 76/100 metacritic is considered poor now?

Which makes him the problem of this industry.

I loved twisted metal, I just wish there were more character stories, but other than that it was great.

that's because the people who review these games are idiots who don't want other people to play a game because they don't like the art design, or the way the characters talk....point being they don't know how to review a game yet their scores are actually taken seriously by sites like Meta if you want a review then review the game yourself by watching the walkthroughs on Youtube, or just rent it first.

This is my worst year in gaming; every game I got excited for turned out to be a disappointment.

Kur02217d ago

I must admit you're right. A lot of games either fell short or got delayed until next year. Only games that seemed to come out right are Journey, Guild Wars 2, Halo 4, and Borderlands 2.

You forgot Dishonored. Best New IP in a long time.
