There's also a newer site called that primarily uses the same click-bait tactics and controversy-mongering content for its articles that does.

The opinion articles on N4G and the sites they are submitted for, in particular, need better examination before they are approved. So many of them, especially lists, are blatantly insincere and worthless. It's watering down N4G and all of its informative, worthwhile content. #1.2
It's a very good dungeon crawler. The story is just tripe filler with flanderized jokes for characters.

I wouldn't necessarily call the the gameplay inferior to Etrian Odyssey, especially if we're not talking III or IV. One forced party member slot, although significant, isn't too big of a deal in my opinion. And fusion replacing skill points can be disliked, I guess, but there's nothing wrong with it and it's a deep, unique system in its own right. <... #1
Actually, one thing I want to point out is that none of this seems to have to do with players finishing games less, relative to the PS2/Xbox/GC-era and eariler.

Do we have data from prior to 7th gen? I'm not noticing any decline consistency chronologically in the graphs presented, which are all 7th gen games. The only blatant consistency I see in that graph is concerned with length. Genre, quality, and pacing also probably factor in highly.

Developers and... #14
I didn't finish RDR because the game was feeling like a serious drag. I got a bit into Mexico and it felt more and more like the game was moving the goal-post to make me run more errands and chores I (and the main character) didn't care about. I felt cheated by the reason the player has to go to Mexico in the first place; a previous major event seriously lacked payoff after so much effort and build-up.

Strictly speaking, it is a high-quality game. But it has major pac... #6.1
That modern games deliver too much might be the problem. A busy person with a family to attend to won't usually be able to complete a big RPG before the next exciting release, for instance. There's too much content to finish in time and they'll likely just move on to the next game when it comes out. #13.1
All it really goes to show is that there's tons of annoying idiots online and we've all got to tolerate them; whether they target us because of sex, age, username, performance, salt, or for no particular reason at all. #2.3
Depends, I guess. On one hand, this is the internet: People tend to be drama queens. They like to dwell on things they don't like and they make stupid and biased assumptions and present them as substantiated facts. In addition, they can say anything they want without any consideration for ethical conduct or communication. It's no surprise that the online world is where negativity and verbal wars thrive. If you're on the internet, positivity should be the last thing you expect. It... #7
It'll be interesting to see where this goes. I like the sound of it better than Metacritic, particularly how it won't fuss over vague number scores and explicitly aims to filter out all the bait associated with game reviews.

That said, I'm still skeptical that it'll be able to keep trolls and fanboys from hurting it. Negative or less positive reviews could get rampantly voted out by fanboys without reasonable justification, for instance. I'm also skeptical... #11
"How can you expect someone to spend days in this world if they don’t care about anyone in it?"

If you enjoy the gameplay. Persona Q, while the characters are blatantly flanderized and the story is a tripe afterthought as a spin-off title, has very solid dungeon-crawling gameplay, deeply customizable progression systems, and interesting level design. And Persona Q is a spiritual adaption of Etrian Odyssey, which has installments in it that are better better than PQ.... #6
Especially for a handheld. Battery life necessitates a conveniently-accessed save feature. #1.1
Yeah, feminist activism these days is nuts. I identify as a feminist because I believe in the equal rights of women and admire the achievements of the movement in the past, but no way do I align myself with these victims of first-world problems and conspiracy theories. Neo-feminists apparently aren't very interested in rights activism where it's actually needed, instead of where it's already been accomplished. They just can't appreciate all the progress that has been made in p... #1.1.2
There are good examples, like Devil May Cry 3 and Super Mario Bros 3. #5
I meant the semen. I guess I have trouble wrapping my head around some degenerate actually doing that and sending it to the person. Though I suppose this kind of stuff isn't exactly uncommon on the internet. Ugh, disgusting. #3.1.1
That first story... fake or not, ick. #3

Last we heard, Stella has not been removed from XV. She's still in, but she got a redesign and has shorter hair now, compared to when XV was still Versus XIII.

Incidentally, she and Luna look quite similar now. #1.1
"The Olympics have been perverted."

I wouldn't put it like that. The Olympics have changed and adapted, just as the rest of the world has. There's nothing wrong with that in itself.

Letting just anyone participate in the Olympics in the highly accessible and security-stressed world we live in now would be ridiculous, for one. The certain people who are picked, then, should logically be the most impressive competitors who have chosen to put i... #1.2.1
I agree. Gambling is called a sport all the time and tournament events exist and all that, but it's never gonna be at the Olympics. The Olympics are exclusively physically-intense activities.

E-Sports are in a pretty good place as it is, if you ask me. It has lots of regular events, an enthusiastic competitive community, and many different games to compete at. What's there to prove? #1.1
Yeah. I'm not interested in diversity for the sake of "representation" or making developers feel obligated to include anything they don't really want to because it'd makes me feel better about society. But they say that variety is the spice of life, and that's how I see it here.

I like female protagonists and characters, for instance, because I feel they offer a unique style, sensibility, and sometimes sexiness. Does that make me a social justice war... #4.1

Yeah, I don't really care about who the protagonist is in my game. I'm someone who barely fiddles around with character creators or aesthetic customization, at that. All that matters is that the game is fun and interesting to play, and I appreciate the protagonist for what they are first and foremost.

I'm not going to blame gamers who really like that sort of thing, but it should really only be relevant to RPGs. And many RPGs already have tons of options that sat... #9
