Groupthink and Zelda

Once upon a time, there was an extremely hyped video game called "The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess." It was looked forward to by every Nintendo fanboy in existance. One day, two days before the game released, it was reviewed by a man named Jeff Gerstmann on Gamespot, who gave the game a score of 8.8 out of 10. Not content with the game getting a good score, fanboys across the internet erupted in anger at how 'low' of a score the game had gotten, despite never having played it.

Something dawned on me today: Opinions don't matter anymore.

zelda is a very good game! i would say a 8.8 is not low, but a 9.6 for gow is high! thats the reason why ppl complain! ppl should not exaggerate the man has some points, a review is only a opinion! the game can be the best ever for some ppl, but for some other its a normal game. i think there are more ratings which were not so correct, for example genji, it get i think 8,8,7,6 and end result 6! but the mean is much higher than 6! i dont understand this rating but it cant be right, because when gow gets its 10,9,9,8 than it gets the endresult 9.5. can someone explain this ? the one is much lower than the mean, the orhter is higher than the mean. but its only a game, and i know genji is better than the review from gamespot is, take some japanese reviews and they are satisfying.

When an 8.8 is a controversial score, you know you've got an awesome game. My wii preorder just shipped so I'm real excited for this game. Zelda for Game of the Year!

Yeah, but the guy has to do an impartial review. he can't just give it a lower score leading people into not buying it because it's not his type of game or something.
