Tokipost Gamer Debate: Journalist Comments

Some game journalists are very well known. So well known in fact, that when Kevin Pereira decided to become a gaming authority by posting a video of himself defending Too Human (Yes the word defending was used) people got on it. The question is, should journalists be doing this at all?

Why didn't they do this with haze or Lair? Why didn't they do it with MGS4 when the fanboys that don't even have the game were flaming it for the long cutscenes.

YES, journalists can defend games AS LONG AS THEY ARE NOT FANBOYS TO BEGIN WITH.

VampHuntD5779d ago

Journalists should stay away from appearing bias and the rants over Too Human and Halo 3 (especially the Halo 3 rant) are just too much. I mean, sure give us a pe5rsoanl opinion, but make sure you base it as a personal opinion rather than trying to compare scores from other games or becoming a mega fanboy and telling others to "quit whining" even though you whine about the same things in other games.

Not saying they were bad games haze and Lair but maybe because Too Human was actually a good game. It's one thing to not like it but to go all out and over exaggerate how bad it is really is ashame. Review sites and gamers that never liked it to begin with are simply forcing it on people that it's a bad game just to hurt it's chances of making good sales and brand it a flop. Kevin did the right thing and sometimes it's good for people in his position to speak out against the review sites that unfairly rate games good and bad. Now the only people that complained cutscenes in MGS4 are people that played through the entire game and I haven't heard anybody yet complain about Too Human that played through the entire game. All of this comparison stuff is silly anyways and Too Human will be a good and successful I hope trilogy for 360.

"Too Human... It's a video game..." - Jeff Gertsmann

Raoh5779d ago

sad part is maybe gaming is still being taken as joke

but one would think the parent companies would put a stop to it as it hurts their image... if viewers stop watching adam and kevin its g4tv that really suffers not microsoft...

as it is i hardly watch television, i download alot or buy my shows outside of LOST and Heroes....

as it is i stopped watching g4tv partly for their fanboism

i dont miss them and i'm sure they dont miss me

TheHater5779d ago

Why are they only defending xbox 360 titles? I mean, where were they when HAZE, LAIR, Heavenly Sword, and MGS4 was being trash by fanboys all over the net? That network is garbage, and I stop watching them about 3 years ago.

Journalism is dead in all shapes and forms. Monetary value attributed to words by advertisement has rendered all "professional" opinions irrelevant. Adam Sessler and Kevin Pereira are tools plain and simple.

Infinite is a dumpster fire and as much as I like ODST, in no universe it ranks above Halo 2. This list is trash.

Kaii163d ago

Just exclude Infinite>5>4

ChasterMies163d ago

Best to worst: Halo 3, Halo 2, Halo Reach, Halo CE, Halo 4, Halo ODST, Halo Infinite, Halo 5.

The 7 Best Xbox 360 Games - Console Exclusives Win the Day

The Xbox 360 was a fantastic console in its day with some truly classic titles, but what are the seven best games for the console?

DrDoomer200d ago

I'm pretty used to these lists being bad, but this one is particularly s#ite.

raWfodog200d ago

I think Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon should have been added to the list.

BrainSyphoned200d ago

I'll go with,
Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon, Culdcept Saga, Shadow Complex, Ace Combat 6 with the flight stick,A Kingdom for Keflings, A World of Keflings.
Bonus Kinect Games: Happy Action Theater and Sesame Street.
*Skyrim was so bad on PS3 that it almost deserves to be #1*

Husker42c200d ago

I really loved Shadow Complex.

P_Bomb200d ago

Ah yes, Shadow Complex! Good indies back in the day. Summer of Arcade. I enjoyed Trials Evolution as well.

ChasterMies200d ago (Edited 200d ago )

Was this made by a.i.? No human being would put Shadowrun, Fable III, and Splinter Cell: Conviction into a list of the 7 best Xbox 360 games.

Abnor_Mal200d ago (Edited 200d ago )

Would love to play Ace Combat6 on PlayStation, but Xbox decided to buy exclusivity and keep it off a competing platform.

The only mainline game I never played except for one level at a friends place. Game sold less than any other in the series if I remember correctly.

darthv72200d ago

360 had Namco hitters AC6 and RR6... both quality titles. You should at least bust out the 360 for AC6 if you can score the flight stick. Its great.

Hofstaderman200d ago

When the current gen XBOX offering is so lacking people need to refer to games released two generations back....

Profchaos199d ago (Edited 199d ago )

It's a nostalgia peice same reason we get thousands of YouTube videos on sega genisis. Something people have fond memories for but the era is long gone.

It's xboxs golden year imo it was their genisis years the time where they stuck it to the market leaders Sony.

BehindTheRows199d ago

They stuck nothing. Sony screwed themselves giving Xbox an opening. They would have gotten the usual smack down if the PS3 had launched at $399 and was easier to develop for.
