Let the flaming begin!
ps3 has better games
Those who follow Metacritic are dumb zombies
I'd say they're relaying more on LOGIC than prejudism, conspiracies, fanboynism etc.
Good list of some quality games there show promising things for all platforms. Hopefully the compiled stats are used as a good sign for gamers and not to fuel a fanboy's ego. I doubt that'll happen, tho. When Zelda comes out, I think I'll buy the Wii, again. Anyone have recommendations on whether the new motion plus model is really worth it? @NeutralGamer: Way to give it a head start. I mean, your comment offers nothing but an intentional attempt at stirring the meaningless war. Bubble down--immature.
If you wanna play the new Zelda then you definitely wanna get the Motion plus model.
I played the last one on the GC. Was TP a bit choppy on the Wii? And thanks.
I was just giving the message in words, that the guy who submitted this news was trying to say...
I need Sin and Punishment now...
"Sales figures are worldwide. Includes games released in 2010 only. Final Fantasy XIII is not included because it was released in 2009 in Japan. Source for sales data: VGChartz.com" So the sales data is most likely not correct....
Its shameful that games where a small italian plumber runs around jumping on planets and such are being reviewed higher than games which actually have SOME innovation and depth of gameplay and visuals.
And which games would those be?
It's sad that your comment got 5 agrees. You must be Trollin.
He is... Sorta right though. Mario might be good but it's nothing we've never seen -no- EXPERIENCED before. I see that the medium of games has a HUGE potential to provide the most diverse field of great experiences but that premise hasn't really been delivered yet.
simply amazing game and thoroughly deserves great sales, Same goes for Super Mario Galaxy 2!
Looks like Mass Effect 2, RDR, Mario Galaxy and God of War 3 are the only ones competing for GOTY so far.
thats quite an epic set of nominee's if you ask me =D imo all 4 deserve to win (never finished MG2 or ME2 but had hands on time with them and they feel GoTY material =O)
I hope ME2 or God of War 3 doesn't win.
i dont agree with metacritics,and u suldn't as well,becouse it doesn't simply provide us the real score of the game,as it takes into account so many C or D class websites which could be easly paid to priaise a game or give it a lower scor,and many of this websites give not a true score that a game deserves.and its stupid to judge a game by a metacritic score.and i cant get it why people take it that seriously,for exaple in metacritics MGS 4 has the same score as street fighter 4,or bioshock,and a lower score than little big planet,and rdr.or Grand Theft Auto IV has the best scor in ps3 and 360 do u really think gta 4 is the best game on ps3 or 360.or do u think street figter is a better game than batman aa,dead space,assassins creed 2 or alan wake.you should believe a A class gaming website's reviews,than metacritics.
u should trust ur own instincts i dont care much for reviews. Once in a while ill look at them to see if there maybe any under the radar games im missing out on but 4 the most part i use my own judgement and seeing as the only game i own that i dont like is turok i think ill keep trusting my instincts p.s. i got turok for free
Not surprising...PS3 is the best when it comes to games...nothing to see here...moving along... What might surprise some is that GOW III is the best selling game beating the likes of Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Red Dead Redemption (360)
Uh... GoW3 came out months ago where as RDR and Mario are hardly a month old. Simple logic bro
What doesn't add up is the BFBC2 sales. Metacritic has it listed as 2.29 million units sold, but there are 4.7 million player accounts according to BFBCS.com
Multiple accounts per disk, maybe? I can do it on my pc but im not sure how it is on consoles.
Metacritic is not exactly the best source to use. How did Mass Effect for the X360 score 96, whilst the clearly superior PC version scored 94?
PC reviewers are typically harder on games.
While X360 reviewers give away high scores easily. FYI , ME2 designed on PC as the lead platform ,that's what Bioware said.
