Do you guy's like nit-picking in your review's?I'm not gonna name any names of site's that"Nitpick"because all site's do it sometimes.I personally don't care about nit-picking but if you take that into account when you set a score for the game then that does annoy me a little bit.

Yes, I like nit-picking in reviews. I like to know everything bad about a game before I buy it. Knowing the bad things about a game is much more important than knowing the good things. I can discover the good things for myself, but the bad things I don't want to discover them and be bummed out by them, so I like to know them before I play it so I am prepared for them.

I agree with what Matty said.
I always want to know the cons to a game before I play/buy it. Finding out that it's bad after I play it just makes me a sad panda.

Nit-picking is fine with me and I don't care about the score of a review unlike most people. I care about the review and reading it should tell me all I want to know.

I'm the most nit-picking person I know, to the point where I made a buddy of mine actually hate Mass Effect, the game he'd revered for months.

That being said, I don't quite like nit-picking in reviews, it just comes off as a little petty. I guess it should still be allowed though. All styles are welcome.

Except 1UP's.

Yea,in my review's I usally don't nit-pick,but if it's a major hyped game I mention every little detail that I see wrong.

Of course, pointing out problems with the game,minor to major, is part of the review.

Definitley yes, sometimes it can be those things that the "nitpickers" find that can ruin the overall experience. Even the tiniest thing can do it.

Any annoyance, no matter how small, may be a valid complaint. I want to know all of them, and dismiss them as I see fit.

If I were going to write a view, I would apply my critical eye and not base my view on the level of enjoyment I had alone. But I just play games and I'll point out things to myself that bother me, though that doesn't get in the way of fun.

Well said.
