You know it's going to be a 5 out of 5.

Cus he's the Big Boss of giantbomb.

I am going to say he will give it 4/5, why you ask? Because it creates discussion.

#6 Posted by JZ (2125 posts) -

@dark: isn't that the type of click bait crap he hates?

#7 Posted by Dark (399 posts) -

@jz: no I mean discussion on how come he will give it a 4/5 instead of 5/5, Jeff will just give it what Jeff gives it.

People don't know the score, and we like this site. We like Jeff.

People are excited? Who? Why do they need validation from anyone about this game?

#10 Posted by Darson (451 posts) -

Because the previous game is what got him fired from GameSpot.

I like Jeff's reviews I feel he is as honest as someone will get even if I don't agree with his reviews sometimes I feel he does a good job of getting his point across.

that was Kane and Lynch.

Because people like his reviews and he (sadly) doesn't do a lot of them anymore?

There's a pretty glowing review of GTA IV on this site that I'm pretty sure had nothing to do with Jeff getting fired long before it was published.

I have seen literally no one (aside from the thread title's presumption) display anticipation or excitement about Jeff's review of GTA 5. Who are these people who cannot wait to debate whether they agree with Jeff's score or not?

Aren't we all in agreement that while Jeff is a good writer, his tastes are so weirdly specific to him (doesn't like Metroid Prime, doesn't like Red Dead Redemption, does like Trackmania, does like Burnout Paradise which is a good game but not as AMAZING as Jeff makes it out to be) that his reviews just aren't a useful opinion to most of the site readers? Sure, sometimes he'll do something interesting, liking being basically the only reviewer to say "Nope, I just never came around on Catherine's weird gameplay", which then gets him a lot of flack. So he can take some bold stances on stuff, but his reviews of games pretty much don't influence me because the criteria he judges games by sometimes seem insane relative to my own.

@jz: Jeff rates up Gta real high. i know you say you werent the biggest fan of GTA 4 (which is fine, to each their own) this is what he said about gta 4 before the review

http://www.giantbomb.com/articles/294617-6467/1100-71/

The story is what I came to see. And I’m having trouble putting my feelings for this game’s story into words right now. I’ll spare you the fumbling and just say that it’s probably the greatest game story of all time, both in content and how it’s integrated into the rest of the game.All those early reviews, where everyone tossed out the highest score they could give, left me scratching my head a bit in the game’s early hours. But I get it now. I understand.

Well I'm quite excited to read the words to be honest, not the numbers. Because it's nice to read words from people I respect.

@mrfluke: wait is jeff basically saying I'm giving it the max score just like everyone else, but mine means more?

I don't see what in that quote gives you the impression that Jeff thinks his opinion is more valuable than any other.

Jeff has been praising SR for so long, even though SR4 was pretty lacking compared to 3. He might give it 4/5 just because he has no super powers.

#25 Posted by mrfluke (5317 posts) -

@jz: yes in a sense? except its more to the people that really like jeff, his score matters more, im sure jeff doesnt give a fuck.

#26 Posted by Humanity (9875 posts) -

@bisonhero: I'm excited for it because I like the way Jeff writes reviews and it will be a comprehensive read about a game that I'm really excited about and want to learn more of.

#27 Edited by JZ (2125 posts) -

@chaser324: it just seems a bit flowery or serious for a game. Theres my problem I don't like serious games.

#28 Edited by JZ (2125 posts) -

HA! I was right. People enjoy the gta5, go buy it, have fun.
