To be perfectly honest, it's almost refreshing to see titillation as opposed to...kidillation (uh thank you) nowadays. The trend in so many Asian games seems to be to see how young they can make the characters look and still get away with sexifying them.

That thumb is such a good summation of the series.

Well, I think a lot of the complaints have more to do with the fact that this franchise in particular seems to promote the general social ignorance and misplaced sense of altruism that this young "movement" has kind of become known for in real life.

Ubisoft seems to want to tackle tough subjects in the same way that modern day "hackerz" seem to tackle them: with a detached sense of consequence-free anonymity.

The industry REALLY needs to work on their terrible song choices for these trailers, but it wasn't enough to make it not look fantastic. I think this is the first time I've been excited for a Battlefield in a long, long time.

Awkward because it is allowed to go on long enough that you know the guy filming is fapping.

I don't think I could go so far as to say it is the best in the series, but I would certainly say it's easily the most underrated.

The story, in particular, is really, REALLY good if you can get past the absence of the extreme melodrama that the franchise is usually known for (and the presence of Vaan in the first ten or so hours). It's funny, because I think the fantasy politics would go over much better nowadays, post-GoT.

The only way to "objectively" critique a game would be with concrete or quantifiable statements. So an "objective" review could inherently only read something like: "Uncharted 4 was developed by Naughty Dog. It was released in the United States on May 10, 2016. 20 bazillion polygons make up Nathan Drake's pants."

Just for the record, there's plenty of "objective" articles and covera...

Feel free to disagree with a review all you want. That's not the issue. The issue is that most gamers still seem to operate under the assumption that reviews are anything other than subjective, which has lead to some pretty ridiculous "book burning" situations over the years.

Reviews are COMPLETELY subjective, whether you all want to admit it or not. So you can either choose to civilly disagree with them, or you can throw in with the likes of the SJW's and...

Disagreeing with an opinion and asking for it to be stricken from the record are two completely different things. One is a disagreement, and the other is a little thing we call censorship.

That's fine. Criticism is perfectly fine. Feel free to criticize the review to your heart's content. I think the vast majority of people will agree that it's way, WAY off base.

But what people are asking for is censorship. There is no other way to spin it. They are asking for a score that they disagree with to be stricken from the public record.

What's hypocritical is that we all seem to agree that it is unethical for publishers to do the...

I don't think "unprofessional" is the word for it. This is a very tricky situation.

Just to be clear, I can't even begin to express how ridiculous I find the actual review, but you have to understand the precedent that would be set by taking down a review that people simply disagree with. It is completely impossible to prove that the intent of the author was anything other than authentic, despite how outlandishly critical the review turned out. Reviews ar...

Have to start evaluating games as art eventually. I think it only becomes pretentious when you make the assumption that everyone has to appreciate it in the same way.

And personally, I'm with the author on this one. Dark Souls has always been pretty unique in it's ability to convey what is best about the medium. Not that there is ANYTHING wrong with games like Uncharted or MGS that tend to take a more cinematic approach to things, but the Souls games tackle almost e...

I really think everyone would have been much happier if the comparisons to the original were avoided. It reminds me much more of games like Painkiller or Serious Sam. You're dropped into big, sprawling maps, yes, but inevitably the game is structured in a way that makes it more like an arena shooter.

...and in that regard, it's one of the best of it's kind. It's big and shiny and fast and brutal and over the top, just as it should be. I'm really loving i...

I just feel like there are ways to update the turn-based system without completely sacrificing the franchises identity. FFXV is very much an action game, which is fine, but people look forward to new Final Fantasy games because they like Final Fantasy. You might as well invent a whole new franchise if you're going to completely uproot everything that makes the games what they are.

That outburst at the end of the video where he fights the Nameless King really made me lol.

The lore is really where I'm with you. Time has always been a little fuzzy in these games, but the reemergence of characters and locations from BOTH games really muddied the lore, in my opinion, especially because DS2 made it pretty clear that Drangleic was a civilization built upon the ruins of Lordran...meaning the characters of DS1 should be LONG gone by the time we enter 3's timeline.

I'm not trying to suggest that $60 is too much (or 60€ for Europeans), but it can hardly be argued that hiking the base price has done anything to combat DLC and microtransactions. There's already three DLC's and a Season Pass planned for Doom.

Publishers will take as much wool off the sheep as they can without hitting bone. We should all be fully aware of that by now.

I'm sorry, but what have they released of any worth SINCE Diablo 3? A crappy attempt at LoL, a crappy attempt at a CCG and a slew of expansions.
