ARoleModel takes a look at the power of game marketing and worth of mouth to reveal how the gaming world makes you love games you really hate.
misleading title. should be how hype effects your judgment.
Crafting misleading titles? Well that's not a good thing for a role model to do.
I see AC3 there but most people liked it....I know it's hard to believe but the people on N4g are not the majority of all gamers. Shocker!!! I no
While this is certainly true, a lot of elements are definitely untrue too. Plenty of people went into Biohazard 6 hating the game... several people noticed it yet again wasn't survival horror (go figure...), many were turned off by some of the design choices and others weren't a fan of the story. The only people who thought it was going to be good, were the people that liked the new direction of Biohazard 6 or went in expecting Operation Raccoon City. The simple fact is that hype is a HUGE double edge sword, which this article fails to touch on. Yes hype can cause us to like it a little more, but if it fails to meet expectations... that can also cause harsher reviews / scores. It works in every direction and constantly flows both ways, so the product has to ultimately meet expectations regardless.
