Haha, so true.
I hate it when review sites give games 89s...
I bet they were thinking this:
"Hey, let's give the skyrim its first non-90+ score so we'll get hits, but wait, we don't want to get hate mails or get nasty threats, so we'll just give it a high 80s score."

That would funny especially considering its 8.9

Oh well, 8.9 is still a great score.

Or ya know...maybe Skyrim really isn't a 10/10 game

Maybe such a thing really doesn't exist. Maybe, just maybe the whole numbered rating system is and always has been retarded.

KonGreat2439d ago

It is retarded, because each game has a different rating to different people's opinions.
It's like some people think MW3 deserves 9's or 10's even, while other just believe it should be 6's, or even a 2. But it should actually depend on what the person is writing, if he's writing 'OMG THIS GAME IS FUCKING AWESOME BECAUSE ITS COD.' or 'ITS COD4 DLC' then there's something flawed with the review and the score shouldn't really be considered.

Deadman_Senji2439d ago

Exactly; and people love to just skip through the wall of text to see if the number favors their predetermined bias or exuberant expectations. That's not the way it should work.

Hey guys, suck it up. It's just a score. Everyone has a different opinion. Didn't we learn our lesson with Gears 3, Uncharted 3, and Arkham City?

I have read this review and I feel like it has too many spoilers. But, I wanted to understand what his complaints were. They are kind of ligit, but he never revealed what difficulty he was playing and he seemed to review this more as a sim than a game.

Despite his complaints, he confected that there is no better RPG on any platform. So the 8.9/10 means that eventhought it may be among the best games he has ever played.
