Don't Feed The Uncharted 3 Trolls

To comprehend the true value of this Uncharted 3 review written by Eurogamer's Simon Parkin, you must first do two things. First, you have to actually read the review. Yes, the entire thing, not just the few paragraphs that happen to catch your eye. Second, you must play Uncharted 3. It is a phenomenal, medium-progressing work, yet many consumers who have an evident superiority complex must learn that even the biggest AAA titles such as the Uncharted games have their flaws.

There are people who will hate a game simply because its not on the console of their choice.

Then there are people who expect a game to get perfect scores, even though they haven't played it.

^ Exactly, I've seen this stuff happen with other exclusives as well from both PS3/Xbox360 owners.

Edit: I like how the media is making such a big deal outta a few people being disappointed with Eurogamer's review at the ***neogaf forums***, but when GeOW fans and even Cliff voiced their disappointment about Gears of War 3 reviews from Jim and Eurogamer, nothing was said or brought up at all.

"but when GeOW fans and even Cliff voiced their disappointment about Gears of War 3 reviews from Jim and Eurogamer, nothing was said or brought up."

Ummm...yeah they did.

Didn't you know?
Only 360 fans are allowed to complain about Gears 3 getting an 8/10 without other people here jumping all over them.
But when PS3 fans do it, they're the worst.

Seriously though, there are articles designed to bait people into arguments and for the sake of cheap hits. Uncharted 3 just so happened to (for some reason) get a lot more heat on this subject.
Other games/systems do get heat as well, but there are less articles about them and the heat usually dies down before it gets to this level.

Should've seen N4G for the past couple of days with articles containing 100s of comments of people going "No no you're wrong. You people can't take anything but perfection can you!", literally.

"This has everything to do with the sad state of game consumers who have been so effectively conditioned by a number of the gaming press/gaming PR machines that these gamers leap to a title’s defense-not that this gem of a game needs defending- without even being open to the reviewer’s criticism (be it valid or not). That’s tragic. What’s even more tragic is I would argue the games medium itself has been damaged by this practice. Irrevocably? No. But it has taken its toll for sure.”

what a sad state of gaming these irresponsible bloggers has done to gaming. So much hate has been made out from gamers by these corrupted PR machines/ Its so unnatural and degrading. I can never justify more hits and more money generated from hate & negativity.

people really have to react and voice out to these hit mongers?

I come to the internet for news and facts and what do I see....flame bait articles, lies, deceit, twisted truth. Of course people will react!

Unchated 3 will sell itself though, just like Uncharted 2 did, despite the negativity of Eurogamer. No one can put a great PS3 exclusive game down. People will tell about it no matter what.

Who cares about the trolls? When it all boils down, in the end Naughty Dog ultimately succeeded what they sought to achieve in terms of quality. The general consensus says that Uncharted 3, like is predecessor is once again a hit.

I cannot wait for November 1st to finally arrive.

@ LOGIC Three odd articles telling us about Cliff being mad (including destructiod) vs 20 telling us how wrong and dumb Uncharted fans are about Eurogamer by just going off the neogaf forums.

Edit: What exactly did he edit?

"Edit: What exactly did he edit? "
he always say that to cover himself.

4 more dayS!

At the end of the day. Does anyone, anyone really care about people who write reviews? If I took every reviewer that posted low scores on games. My experience over all the years playing would have been limited and shallow. A review is always someone else's opinion that will not be shared by everyone. Be your own critic and find out for yourself if it's good or not. Go rent the game first if you have doubts.

I lol at disagreer's of prefect logic. Sites full of these people.

Those wankers at Eurogamer always try to be different. It is so transparent that it borders on pathetic.

Sony games are subject to ridiculous amounts of nitpicking from certain sites and publications it is getting beyond a joke. You have people complaining about Uncharted 3 being more of the same yet games like Modern Warfare and Gears of War get a free ride.

I really don't need Eurogamer to strip UC3 down to the bare bones and go all Freudian about some flaw it has just for the sake of finding one.

The corruption that has entered the industry since MS came on the scene has destroyed once great sites and mags.
