Select/Start Games Editorial: The State of Gaming Reviews

"In hindsight, looking back at those titles, you get the notion that they were maybe over-scored. Games like Perfect Dark, Flatout, GRAW, Rainbow Six Vegas, King Kong, Call of Duty 2, etc, all received extremely high marks from various publications (which, out of respect, I won't name them here).

Don't get me wrong. The games are good games. But scores in the 9/10, 10/10, and A/A+ ranges, etc, etc, to me, at least, is saying that this game is an "instant classic." It is so good, that you will go back to it years from now, pop it in the tray, and be swept up with wistful Nostalgia with just how damn good the game was. In truth, many games don't have that affect. Games like Super Mario Bros. 3, Metal Gear Solid, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Halo, Knights of the Old Republic, The Legend of Zelda: A Link To the Past, etc are games that truly stand the test of time, and deserve those high marks and are worthy of the praise they receive."

"This is a five part editorial on the state of gaming reviews I posted up on my site, selectstartgames.com. I waited until all 5 parts were complete before I decided to share it here on News4Gamers. I really hope it opens up some discussion about the gaming media's current review system." Take this out please.
