Good thing no one takes girl gamers serious. It might mean something.
It's funny what they're calling X-bots these days!!!
I Hope the person who actually wrote this review sees this - YOUR A DUMBFU(K !!!! yeah it makes me sound like a little kid, but who cares? I am just mean, thats all.
This is why they even call themselves Gamer Girls. We all just consider ourselves gamers, when you have to differentiate your gender when you make a review there's something wrong already.
"Review courtesy of our friends at LesbianGamers" Guess they wanted to See more of Naomi eh?
...The f*ck? I'm a female and even *I* thought this game deserved a 10.
come on juuken you're boy... anyway it seems that girls hate MGS4 cuz the chicks from http://www.gamegirl.com/ were hating too...
-.- You bother are idiots. That is all. I've been a female gamer for years. I've made grown guys scream in frustration at fighting games.
thats like a
you f*ckin serious?
Girls.... they can't be gamers. THIS IS NOT LOGICAL!!
That is a joke. Even pure 360 fans and PS3 haters would give this game a 95%, minimum.
That was a rather short review, didn't really justify it much either. And this late? To me it just smells of a site wanting more views. Example, they mention " Metal Gear Solid 4 will either have you smiling with glee or wondering why you stumped up a hundred bucks for an elongated, slightly interactive, socio political commentary.", yet they give it a bad score for one thing they didn't like, NO OTHER bad points, despite claiming they wanted to do it unbiasedly? With that they should've atleast gone for a middle score.
This pathetic site just shown, with this review, it is.... W O R T H L E S S. Even the blind 360 fan boys wouldn't give it a 6. FAIL
Wow what a late Review... has to be a site that want publicity and am not surprised.
WTF is this sh*t?
lesbian girls obviously cant comprehend the complexity and beauty. EDIT: the original review is from lesbiangamers.com, im not randomly calling girl gamers lesbos...
ahhh i love the month late reviews that completely low ball great games to get hits on their site. I love them.
There's no need to start bashing girl gamers or women in general just because this site made a stupid review. It's not like we're gonna write off europeans just because of euro gamer or anything.
i agree, its all in jest though XD
LOL...lesbians...they're everywhere nowadays...
When your site needs to work hard to claim any credibility, like a site entitled 'lesbiangamers', you'd think they's try and actually do an in depth review of one of the largest titles this year.
Instead they plainly demonstrate that site for whom their sexual preference seems to have something to do with with their gaming, simply doesn't have the ability to review.
If they had demonstrated that they had had played and understood the game, you might be able to tolerate them trash talking such an extraordinarly good title. But to rubbish such a work of art with a few short paragraphs and put any meat explaining why, shows that these girls have got no idea at all.
I hate to say it, but they've plainly demonstarted they should stick with Wii fit.
6/10 lol... come on now. this was a ridiculous review and one that just seemed to miss the whole point of MGS, but please people stop with the lesbian crap and the barbie crap, at the end of the day it's a PERSONS view even if it sucked. one thing i hate more than bad reviews of excellent games is mindless, shallow sexism.
nahh dont take it so seriously! im sure nobody means what they're saying, its just that its METAL GEAR SOLID 4! anything that says a bad word about snake should fear for themselves, whatever age/sex/race!
They are the ones that brought their sex into their gaming!
How many games sites do you know where sexuality has anything at all to do with the subject? Been to 'Heterosexual gamer' recently? Or that other great site, 'Transsexual shootemup fans'?
I thought not! They are the ones bringing sexuality into it... so you can expect a bit of ribbing.
Keep the self righteous posturing for a place that genuinely needs it...
If i wanted sh*t from a girl i would squeeze there heads
cuz thats wer most of there sh*t comes from. no one would recognize them with there mouths closed!
KUDOS to you, your post made me laugh, and couldnt agree more.
I really hope no actual girls read these comments. Lets be honest though, the only thing that could possibly appeal to the ladies in the same way the BB Corps appeals to the guys is that bit in act 2 when snake's got his top off, and that is a bit of a bum deal unless you're into old men or something.
Well, you cant forget vamp in all the times he has his shirt off... And my girlfriend thought Akiba was "cute." x.x....
"Review courtesy of our friends at LesbianGamers "
This is BS. Why were these girls playing this game in the first place for?
1) This site has no credibility - They've reviewed only 3 PS3 games... Heavenly Sword - 9/10 Uncharted - 9/10 MGS4 - 6/10 Sorry but Heavenly Sword is not better then MGS4 lol... 2) Since there last PS3 game review was back in 2007, they had no choice but to give this game one of the lowest scores yet just so they could get website hits, it's pretty clear that this review/score screams "PLEASE GIVE MY WEBSITE HITS" 3) One month too late with the review... 4) The review didn't mention anything about gameplay elements, so I don't even think they played the game. Sounds like this person just went onto wikipedia, read other reviews, and made a half assed attempt review from that. Or maybe she just went onto youtube and watched gameplay videos of people beating MGS4 from start to finish lol Ah well, good thing this site isn't on the metacritic, would be an embarrassment
i love her honesty though. im not gona have a go at her like everyone else becus its her opinion, everybody has one.
judging by what she says she obviously isnt a fan of the series and she she quotes in almost the exact same words as kojima himself '' this is one for the fans''.
Regarding her being female HALLELUYAH! personally i wish there were more female gamers, its like an online sausage fest around here lol.
after I read the review and saw that they gave it a 60% that N4G was going to go crazy. And none of you disappointed me. You held true to N4G form that people cannot view MGS4 as bad, and if anyone says anything bad about them, then they have no creditability and are awful. I for one completely agree with there review. Why any of you make it a point that they are less creditable because they are women, or I guess lesbians, is hilarious. You should all be ashamed of yourselves for degrading them because there women, like they are less than any of us "great and almighty men." Grow-up, seriously. edit: @below. While I like to believe that most are kidding, I believe that most are not. Also, with this stuff about the review being a month late, there are pro-MGS4 reviews on here daily from other sites and no one says anything about them being a month late.
Many of us are just messing around.
I couldn't care less who reviews the game, but I will mess around with whoever gives a game a score it doesn't deserve.
Of course everybody has an opinion, but opinions doesn't necessary have the right to sh*t on something that is good overall. That goes for Games, electronics, cars, movies etc.
If you go against the current, you will have to endure the criticism, just as they expect Kojima to endure theirs towards his game.
ahhh man chill out, loosen that belt and grow some balls! its a joke, get off your noble high horse, the sites called lesbiangamers and gamergirlsunite. its up to them if they want to band together, but expect a bit of a p*sstake when you review an obvious masterpiece like MGS4. look at eurogamer, it lost how much credibility after its ridiculous review? this review was hardly a review at all. and thats why its getting this response.
Alright, the only game most girlfriends will play is GTA4 and something on the Wii. It's not sexism, it just possibly that some people know games better than others, and clearly this girl doesn't know.
A site doesn't have much credibility with reviewing PS3 games when they've only done 2 others besides MGS4. And if you actually read there review, it's a pretty weak one, one that anyone could have written without playing the game. Surely they could have mentioned bits about gameplay but they didnt? All they did was give some brief bg history, phrase the graphics, give a brief overview of characters, then rant about long cut scenes, oh wait scratch that they did mention something about gameplay... "Add to this the over macho premise and repetitive gameplay and we had to truly force ourselves to finish the thing." Macho premise? Did they expect Snake to wear a dress and pick flowers? It's a stealth action game and the main character is a fricken male, of coarse it's going to be "macho." Repetitive gameplay? I think not, you can play this game in different ways, stealthy or action with run & gun gameplay, or a mixture of both. And with the wide selection of weapons/items you can expirment with different gameplay styles as well. So I fail to see how this game is repetive. Unless she's getting down to the nitty gritty where by that logic, you can say every game is repetive.
this girl is probably ugly and needs some wang in her life.. Chicks dont play games like this either.. chicks only play those weird a$$ games(nintendo dogs) and FPS games.. MGS4 is a mens game, sorry but it is.. Its meant to be played by a man and watched by a woman..
Lol everyone says their girlfriend is hot.
Lady's are not all of the same mind. Some can play FPS and TPS just fine, most though have no desire to.
splinter_girl88 for example, actual footage of a girl puting the pwn down in cod4 -> http://www.gamespot.com/use...
It is fun when I get my Goddess of everlasting love on an fps its not competitive but its fun to see her try to roast me with a flame thrower but most of the time shes running around looking at the ground or stuck on a wall. She does not play FPS often though because she has a competitive nature and does not like to lose.
Looks like they gave MGS4 a bad review to get traffic on their site...worst reviewers ever!!!, all the trustable sites have given it an 8 MINIMUM!!! who the hell are these people?...just tells me not to go to this site ever again, they don't know what they're talking about obviously.
At this point in time, any review for MGS4 is just for attention. The game has been out over a month. Who takes that long to review a game? Honestly? Guys, just pass over this website/review. Just wants attention.
hahahahhaha theres a reason this is the latest review yet (i mean seriously wtf)
and no one has ever heard of these dumb bítches
Nuff fukin said!!!!
They were jealous that Snake gets more ladies, and of his awesome mullet.
must be probably one of the Nintendo Core hardcore gamers :D go play Wii Music!
haha what a joke, only other reveiw this low me saw was out of a free newspaper LMAO. Who gives a crap? i think the 50+ 10/10's speak for themselfs
but she watched EVERY MINUTE of it. she even stayed up with me until 6:45 in the morning to watch the ending cutscene with me, saying, "this is the best video game ever." she loves Snake, and she cried so many times during the game that i lost count. even in subsequent playthroughs, she still cried at the same parts, though she knew how it was all going to turn out. everybody's different, and has their own opinions, but i just don't see the point of playing through a game you obviously have no interest in, just to b*tch about it. it would be like me playing Madden, even though i HATE football, and proceeding to give Madden (or any football game), a 60/100 because it's "guys running back and forth throwing footballs."
Like many before have posted, this review is posted for the sole reason to generate hits. Obviously the scores won't be posted to metacritic. I understand each person is entitled to their own opinion, but this review is so poorly written that it's hard to take seriously. Honestly, most serious gaming publications put forth a genuine effort to review this game, and scored it 20-40 points higher. This article's author can't even be bothered to write over 900 words to explain the multitude of shortcomings and technological blunders that drive the score down to what the industry describes as barely passable. I can deal with fanboyism and biased reviews, but this is downright laziness, and simply disgusts me.
intance, dont like games at all, bother to review it. Its like me reviewing "sex and the city", "Ally macbiel" or make up for that matter....
the "sex and the city" comparison~!
I strongly disagree with the score... but it doesn't really bother me. Whether you believe that score is fitting or not... I think most would agree it's a rather poorly written review.
I'll trust my girlfriend when it comes to games before I listen to any of these types of sites. She actually has great taste. Loves all the Metal Gear games and even beat MGS4 on The Boss Extreme and unlocked the Big Boss face camo!
6/10? NO WAY GIRLS DO NOT KNOW WHAT MAKES A GOOD GAME. THIS REVIEW IS A JOKE. 11/10
they did it to get website hits. trying to stir up drama as usual. gamergirls.com as a website is practically dead.
yeesh, i don't even know what to say to the stupidity of the article.
No one's going to take THESE girl gamers seriously. Let's not lump them all together in one category. Don't we take enough flak for others as is?
... everybody has one, and most of them stink.
3 to 8 minute installs for each stage drives them nuts... Glad they never played Devil May Cry 4.
"Screechy" voice act... OHHHH, you meant Otacon's whining...
I get the feeling that "story-driven" gaming isn't their thing...
"Regarding the female point of view, there are quite a few female characters joining the party, no matter what age. Sunny for example is a young girl who unfortunately is being captived. Meryl Silverburgh is a female soldier who idolized and fought alongside Snake. And more to come: Naomi Hunter is a geneticist specialized in nanotechnology and another scientist is the Chinese-American Mei Ling. Big mama also comes along as the cold war-era spy but if Snake can't handle it, there's always Rosemary, a psychological counselor who offers her advice to Snake."
Why do I have the feeling that the whole point of the review was this joke of a paragraph?
"Add to this the over macho premise and [[repetitive gameplay]] and we had to truly force ourselves to finish the thing. We feel fans of the series will love that this title ties up all the loose ends one can imagine. Die hard fans may berate us our negativity, but when compared to film narrative titles like [[Mass Effect or BioShock]], Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots fell a little short of our overall expectations."
I made the hypocrisy easier to spot for you. And die-hard fans could give two squirts of p*** about your negativity. Same as any game someone really wants to play....
lol....thats all i can say about her opinion
If some football-watching, beer-guzzling middle-aged guy from Texas reviewed "Sex and the City" and gave it a 6/10 for having no action, no plot (that *he* could recognize), too much focus on clothes and the sheer disconnect from the real world... he'd deserve to receive some sexist/mean responses from ladies who enjoyed Sex and the City.
The review may of course still be considered "truthful" at that point, but it won't change the fact that it's lame and worthless.
exactly, she obviously didnt understand the game, and when she popped in the disc, she was expecting Wii sports
those b*tches can suck it then they should stick to their day job
If a game can make u cry than thats an automatic 10...
Not all like this game, accept the fact guys, sh*t happens... I love it myself but I don't give a f*ck about what others think but respect their opinion, as should most of you.
u really need to go suck it
You're so cute I want to pinch your wittle cheeks. Teenage rage will pass, trust me. And thx for blocking me, shows what kind of punk you really are ;D Just another fake account little fanboy to add to my list...
