i hate when people bring sales into a conversation. this wasn't really focused around killzone 2, more about metacritic in general and how they rate their games and their own predictions.

Why in the crap would you interview this guy? I got down 10 questions and this guy doesn't do squat. I would have just thrown this interview out, because it isn't even worth reading in any sense.

The guy has like no valid information or even a solid opinion on anything to the recent Metacritic phenomenom in games.

TSA: Which of your personal favourite games has ended up with a disastrous Metacritic score?

MD: I don’t own any current or last gen consoles. I was a pretty avid gamer during the Genesis [Megadrive] days, especially when I had a year off between college and grad school, but since then, I haven’t had the time to devote a huge slice of time to gaming. Too busy generating Metascores!

So he isnt even a gamer.

I don't see how that makes any difference, the site is purely there to total up reviews and provide an average/mean. Gamer or not, doesnt effect how the site operates.

I guess as far as a game site interviwing him goes that's pretty much a waste of time though.

Pennywise3562d ago

He has no opinion on anything because he isnt a gamer. This guy is all about hits, not games.

Did anyone say hiphopgamer?

gametheory3562d ago

If he was a gamer he'd know some websites or mags are worthless and shouldn't count towards the metascores. Edge, Variety and Eurogamer are a few examples.

i thought that was def one of the strangest things ever. runs a site that brings ratings together of games, but doesn't even play games. wtf lol

Sarcasm3562d ago

Glass is half full guys.

It's a good thing he doesn't play games. Cause it at least shows he won't have any bias towards any particular console, Wii, 360, or PS3.

I KNOW ! Thats what freaked me out. I stopped reading there, and checked if there were any questions that actually asked something relevant or provocative. He was more interested in good he was at guessing scores.

And hes not even a gamer.

Never trust a bald barber. He has no respect for your hair.

SOOO TRUE. Seriously thats so true.

Marc doyle is alright, he has to let the bigger magazines and websites count for the sake of fairness.
