Wow, 2014 Sucks: Rayman Legends is the Best We've Seen?

Not that there’s anything wrong with Rayman Legends. But considering the big titles that have already come down the pike, it’s a disappointing year.

80+ scores are excellent. This guy just want a lot of masterpieces, and with today's demands by critics, they're pretty hard to get.

True.

But another "problem " is gaming isn't going to change much in the future other than on the graphics side and even there the changes are small and slow on all platforms, so what is many times a masterpiece is then made in to "boring" or "looks bad".

A shooter is going to stay as a shooter, RPG's the same or MMO, they ain't going to change much gameplay wise but can still be masterpieces.

A monster who had 2 arms in the first game is going to have 4 arms in the next game, but the monster is going to look better in the second.

Gamers should really apreciate games a little bit more and stop hyping them self every time they see the first trailer, and the same goes for game journalist.

You know, I'm a freaking jaded gamer, but even I don't buy this whole "2014 sucks" crap. Suddenly, if you're not popping out 95+ AAA games, it sucks? I didn't care too much for Watch_Dogs, but even I enjoyed it and don't think it sucks. I've enjoyed Child of Light and Second Son.

I've enjoyed just as many games this year as I did last year in the same period.

I know this is just an "opinion" piece, but the opinion expressed here is complete garbage. There have been quite a few (with a TON more coming) good games this year. I'm still trying to figure out how i'm going to pay for them all later this year.

Don't approve this POS article please.

1) Wow, VGRHQ went from making silly articles about how great critics are to extremely inflammatory articles based off review scores quickly. @_@;;
2) I don't see the point in bringing up TLOU and TR being 2013 titles, since Rayman Legends is also a 2013 title.
3) I like that we're now at a point where expecting high review scores means "9+" and things can be considered disappointing if they hit the 8 range. At this point people really should just drop the score system and say "good, bad or average" or something that takes all emphasis off the score.
4) GOTY awards are not based off any real metric. It isn't like the highest scoring game is automatically GOTY and a game doesn't even need to be in the 9+ range to be a candidate. A lot of times people give GOTY to the game they think was best, which usually falls in line with scores (both because it makes sites look bad if the award goes to a title they didn't review as fondly as others and these games are typically good. This is classic correlation does not imply causation.) and something like Mario Kart 8 could win on the simple basis of how fun it is.
5) What is so bad about Rayman Legends anyway? It looks awesome, plays extremely well, has endless replay value via online challenges, offers varied gameplay and only scored 4, let that sink in.... F O U R points lower than TLOU on Metacritic, with GTA only beating it by 6. You act like the fact that a game that is simply fun being the best title thus far and foreseeable future is an insult to the gaming world and part of the reason why people don't trust critics in the first place.
