Couldn't help but lol at Activision's results. Not a single original game in 2012...

pandehz1329d ago

Yea the best original title part cracked me up too :D

LOL, whatever...it wasn't that long ago EA was voted the worst company in America (of which I agree).

Convas1329d ago

You agree that EA is the worst company in America?

Ahead of companies like Monsanto and Bank of America?

Shows how much gamers like you know.

You do realize that not every person has had a negative experience with Monsanto or Bank of America, right? It is also very possible that those same people DID have a bad experience with EA, or even multiple ones.

A person considering EA to be the worst company in America is just as valid as you considering either of the others due to the differing personal experiences. In other words, think the "why" part out before insinuating gamers are uneducated or don't know anything about these sorts of things.

Yep, voted worst by online trolls. There's some meaningful results for you. You might as well have called it the "Metacritic User Awards" as it was just about as meaningful. As long as EA keeps making games I want to play, I'll keep playing them.

There is no doubt that EA are behind some of the most enjoyable experiences this gen. From popular games like Mass Effect, its sport franchises and Battlefield to racing games like Burnout and the reboot of Need for speed. Dead Space was a total shock and 1 & 2 turned out to be fantastic games. Also they have had some sleeper hits like Mirrors Edge and Reckoning.

Now I may not always agree with their business practices... heck as of late I can't tolerate EA... but there is no denying there are quite a few great games out there right now tied to EA this generation.

Not surprised, Metacritic is about as reliable as my stool for accurate depictions of a video game's worth. Can't see why it'd be any more accurate with video game publishers.

-GametimeUK-1329d ago (Edited 1329d ago )

I found them to be somewhat reliable. I mean, surely you can give or take with any score, but generally speaking the good games with a green tab next to them and are rated near 80 and above are probably worth playing to fans of the genres and the games that dip in to the 70's and lower and are shown with barely with green tabs, yellow tabs and red tabs are probably not worth your time.

Of course you take it with a grain of salt, but I find metacritic highly reliable (for me personally) when deciding what game to try. If I don't like the game it is usually because of bad taste on my part.

Once metacritic starts using internet traffic statistics to filter out the no name hit piece reviews (giving games a 4 or 5 for the sake of hits) then it might be useful.

I think Metacritic should only use the top 50 gaming sites based on traffic and even go as far as to list them in order. gaming review sites would be at risk of losing their metacritic scoring should they piss off gamers by putting out troll reviews or upcoming sites rise in popularity due to honest indepth reviews.

Yeah despite how ****ly they are, They still piss out good games year after year
