IGN - We made a list. You sent us opinions. Here's our response.
why the f**k was MGS 4 so low in your list despite giving it a 10?????
Someone else from ign gave the game a 10 not the people who made the list.
Only MGS4. 2. ME2 3. UC2 4. RDR 5. Portal 2
Well, that just proves review scores mean nothing and that reviewers/journalists opinions are no better than anyone else' on the internet.
That reminded me of IGN 2008 overall GOTY, they gave it to Fallout 3 because it is multiplat. PS3 2008 GOTY: MGS4 ----- IGN 10 360 2008 GOTY: Fallout 3--IGN 9.6 Overall GOTY: Fallout 3 WTF o_O that was the day I quit paying attention to reviews and trust myself and my choices.
They didn't even put in the top 100 games (was it of the decade or the generation? Can't remember, either way it deserved to be on the list!)
That's what gregg Miller said in the podcast. :p
'why the f**k was MGS 4 so low in your list despite giving it a 10' Maybe they played it a second time and thought - 'Actually, this game isn't that good' Like most people who have played it after hearing how great it is by ps3 fanbois on n4g. EDIT:@iHEARTboobs You thought it was. I didn't. That's what now. So obviously in this world of billions of people, some people don't agree with you. That's the way it is.
Well, it is great. So what now?
funny - i'm working on my 12th playthrough of MGS4
god no one cares everyone has there opinion everyones either gonna be happy or mad at this list
Demons souls at 24 and i knew it was just more IGN trolling ps3 owners.
Demon's Souls at 24??? O.o Thanks for the info. That saved me from giving them a hit. DS is number one on my personal list.
ign reviewers are going downhill big time. They're only fanboys of certain games will defend them to death and give every new instalment at least a 9 no matter what. this list just proves it
Because their list differs from yours? EDIT:@Mario007 But that's the thing, while I enjoyed DS a lot, loads actually, I would put Dead Space 2 above it because I liked it even more. It's not weird, it's just personal preference.
not really, but putting MGS4 on 18 and Demon Souls at 24 is just plain weird, no matter how you try to justify it (especially considering dead space 2 is above both mgs4 and DS)
This list was just a big middle finger to everyone who reviewed games like kz2, mgs4, demon souls, resistance 2. They gave r2 a 9.5 and it wasn't on the list, but games that got a 9 were, Why ign ?
I don't think they should put more than one game of each franchise. This, so far into the generation, leads to glaring omissions as the Assassin's Creed games (not the first one, but Part 2 or Brotherhood should be on that list).
God of War 3 should of been number 1!
Uncharted 2 should and will get number 1
I am sorry IGN: Cathereine and Dead Space are better than MGS4 ? Infamous is better than MGS4 ? Fallout and POrtal are better than MGS4 ? Demon's souls @ 24 the Freaking MGS4 @ 18 Why in the f##king hell did yo give MGS4 a perfect 10 in the first place ? was all this because it didn't end up in the 360 ? this not an opinion piece it is trolling, I have always respected IGN for being the biggest and the most prominent gaming website, but being run by bunch of fanboys is pathetic, you didn't respect your own review and rating system which makes even more useless, MGS4 is one of the few games that got 10 in your site and that your treatment to it? that is a shame and so pathetic, and thanks IGN for hitting a new low in gaming journalism.
If you listened to the podcast you'd know that neither of the people that made the list reviewed MGS4. Had it been left to Collin, MGS4 wouldn't even have made the list.
I rented Catherine and tried getting into and didn't like it. If you look at other lists, mgs4 is in top 5 if not number 1. Ign is a failbox biased piece of garbage. I'm pretty sure they will be the only site to give uncharted 3 an 8.5 like they give all other ps3 games. Also, a top ps3 game list should be ps3 only, not multiplats. If that was the case, Xbox would have 6 games on their list.
I got what you mean, but those people are making a list of a 25 must have games for the PS3 and make it official by putting IGN name on it, shouldn't they at least have a proper knowledge of the games listed ? shouldn't they at least Respect their Co-writer who reviewed MGS4 ? shouldn't they respect IGN name ? hell I can make a list of 25 must have 360 games and I will skip Gears and Halo BUT I can't do it Simply because Halo and Gears are incredible games and skipping them will hurt me and my credibility,right ? I hope I made my point clear because if it was a no-name site I wouldn't have commented in the first place, but it is IGN and they must respect their status and the industry and watch their postings and writers.
You can respect an opinion without agreeing with it. They respect the opinions of their fellow reviewers that's why they compromised and included it even though not all of them agreed it should be on the list. "hell I can make a list of 25 must have 360 games and I will skip Gears and Halo BUT I can't do it Simply because Halo and Gears are incredible games and skipping them will hurt me and my credibility,right ? " If you feel that they are incredible games, why would you skip them? The point is that THEY feel it's a great game (as it's in the top 25 list) but they think there are other games better than it. That being said, if you felt that Gears and Halo weren't as good as 25 other games but decided to include them in your list anyway because you were afraid of your "credibility" being damaged then that would not only show you were not credible since you conformed your opinion to suit that of others (which should be THE one thing you want to avoid as a reviewer), but it would also show that you lack integrity (another INCREDIBLY important attribute in that line of work) as a journalist/reviewer. So in the end quite frankly, I got your point, however misguided it may be.
If you listen to the Podcast they explicitly tell you to play all these games. Remember this is their opinion, of the GREATEST PS3 games of all time. It's kind of tough to put a list like that together. They must definitely are not shitting on any of these games. They just happened to like some better than others. And remember only one person at IGN writes the review, writes their opinion about a game. This isn't just some machine that puts out reviews, it's a group of people with widely varying opinions.
My personal top 3 are Demon's Souls, Uncharted 2, and Valkyria Chronicles. Not in that order. Too hard to decide how to rank them.
It would be a battle between Demon's Souls and Metal Gear Solid 4 for my #1. What a tough choice!
Hang on, I thought...
