Ben Paddon vs. Jim Sterling

Original Gamer: "I recently had the pleasure of interviewing two men from across the pond. The first is Jim Sterling of, who has become a household name in the gaming community. Jim has many fans, and a lot of people who just hate his guts. One of those people just might be a bloke by the name of Ben Paddon. Ben's love for gaming spawned a site that points out the crap coming from the so-called video game press called "Game Journalists are Incompetent Fuckwits." Well, we've got them both on the Original Gamer podcast so they can finally say what’s they've been holding in for so long. Get ready for a no-holds barred discussion filled with vulgarity, cheap shots, and very little from yours truly. Sit back, relax and listen in awe at the filth that comes from the mouths of these two Brits."

This all comes down to the fact that we can't accept Jim Sterling because he rates games from an honest standpoint and breaks the pattern most other sites follow (never stray too far away from IGN/Gamespot/bignamesites scores).

He voices HIS opinion, which any honest reviewer should do. If more reviewers were honest against themeselves, instead of against the mainstream media, scores would be much more scattered across the board.

If someone, for some reason, hates a game like Mass Effect 2 they should be allowed to air that opinion as long as they state their reason for it. That way us consumers would be able to form a more objective idea about different games.


like giving assassins creed 2 a 4.5?

giving black ops a 11/10?

lbp a 7.5

or the cherry on top (as he clearly loves his food) giving DEADLY PREMONITION A 10/10

jim sterling has no credibility he admits himself he was lucky to fall into reviewing games,so no delbertgrady jim sterling is not honest he does this for attention and hits

JohnApocalypse3732d ago

That's not his real score of Black Ops


to even hint 11/10 for a mediocre game is bad enough

armycore3731d ago

Just bringing that up as a possible point shows no credibility in your criticism.
