Revolutionary Rant - Metacritic Abusers

"The world woke up on Tuesday morning to find your dribble, your fanboy ramblings, your absolutely horrid remarks. I already highlighted a select few of them, but when I visit Metacritic's user reviews for Portal 2 they're nearly all hidden from view." - Daniel Bischoff Game Revolution

I completely agree with this. That's why I hate user reviews.

I can understand the reasons for disliking 0/10 user reviews, but why is this classified as abuse? Clearly, some gamers take issue with Portal 2 and they score it to protest, but no, this is not allowed. Their opinion is "abuse". Let's erase their opinion and trust the all-powerful "pro game journalists" review scores. Silence the dissenters.

I'm surprised anyone still cares about reviews for anything but entertainment. The score thing is so last gen, we have demos of almost everything worth playing now and we can see videos of anything we can't test.

Reviews are now practically useless, specially those made to justify a score instead of sharing an opinion. Much worse, what does a score centralizer site is worthy at this day and age? Why should we care if the game meta is 7.4 or a 7.6 and difference it represents when we can turn our consoles on and see for ourselves on a much better scale: play or not play.

And then there are certain company employees who give their own games 10s. *cough* Dragon Age 2 *cough*

This is why I never use Metacritic. I just go with my gut. Occasionally I'll end up picking up a crappy game, but usually it's not hard to tell what's going to be good and what's going to stink. Being able to demo games on consoles now and days before buying them is a big help too. Who needs a metacritic anyway? Critics are jerks. The last thing we need is a giant entity made up of them and their bitterness.

The user scores and reviews are just one part of Metacritic - and arguably the least relevant one (by far the least relevant one in my opinion).
