Can You Believe This A****** Gave Two Perfect Scores In A Week?

GR: "When we published two 5/5 reviews earlier this month, I was defensive, even before clicking "submit" for you and the whole world to see. I was worried that my enthusiasm was mistaken, that I had betrayed GameRevolution's clawing, kicking, spitting, puking dedication to the truth..." (3DS, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Assassin's Creed III, Culture, PS3, The Last Of Us, Wii U, Xbox 360)

They may get a few good hits in but Joel always wins in the end ;)

its his opinion, and both games ARE good so who cares.

There's so many gray areas when it comes to review systems. I suppose there's nothing wrong with rating a game based on your own personal experience with it, but what happens when a game like Demon's/Dark Souls falls into the hands of an incompetent gamer? Fortunately, the masses embraced those games, but there's plenty of people who are turned off by them. (Thank God I'm not one of them.)

I see no problem with this. Two completely different games are perfect for two completely different reasons, and there's nothing wrong with that. I played the original Animal Crossing, and I found it an engrossing, cute and massively entertaining game. If the newest iteration fixes the minor complaints I had with the previous one and adds more features and content, it does deserve a perfect score.

Would I say they're equally as good? Doubt it. But judged on the terms of the games, then they're both outstanding representations of the genres they belong to. I would not judge The Last Of Us on variety of gameplay and sandbox interactivity, just like I would not judge Animal Crossing on story or graphical quality. They must be judged in the context of the genres they belong to, as I've said, and if they're both the pinnacle of their genre, then they both deserve perfect scores, even though you might judge one or the other to be better.

Can I believe it?
Yes.
Do I care one whit about it?
Not in the least.

The last of Us will have you on the edge of your seat, whereas Animal Crossing will last you much much longer (if your into life sims.)

I'm still trying to figure out what the "A" word with all the stars is up there.... Aardvark? Antelope? Anchovy? Alabaster Princess? I'm at a loss here.

Wii U makes me laugh. Best console of current generation but they want it to last through next generation??
