amen. every effing 9.5 for a generic ass fps is another nail in the coffin. every review that fails to address the myriad of bugs and glitches is another nail. every review that fails to address broken online play is another nail. the fact that every heavily hyped game is guaranteed a 9+ and only the "B" games get honest reviews is a nail in the coffin.i simply find it hard to believe that seemingly EVERY reviewer LOVED RDR, mw2, etc. it's statistically impossible.

the real killers though are the absolutely sheep who cling to review scores like they're gospel, they're like robots. "it got a 7, i must not ever play it. i have no opinions of my own derp derp."
