@believer258: Jak 3 was certainly the more polished game but I think it was the shock and surprise of what Jak 2 was - and the fact that they managed to pull it off so well.

And here I thought that everyone else forgot the Jak and Daxter series. It's the only series I know that successfully pulled off the gritty sequel. Most underrated series of the PS2 era.
I don't have time to parse out a top 25 right now but I'm lovin' both of you so much right now :)
Naughty Dog's best games, franchise of it's generation and Playstation's all time greatest franchise in my opinion.
...though I lean towards Jak 2 personally.
So no more pipes in games? Or just green pipes?
PS: What's your high score? And does the "obstacle" ever change? All this bullshit convinced me to download it and play it (guilt-free btw) and this thing is hard as shit.
I have yet to see a Twitter fight where both parties don't come off as well, twits.
As for the review, I don't agree with the developer's personality being considered in the score but I also don't think things like budget, dev team size, development hardships, or "brave-for-trying" should be considered either and that's been happening regularly for years now. I don't know what happened to videogame reviews but I want to hear about the video game and how it plays, not the developer, not the industry, and not the reviewer's philosophical view on what this game "really means". Save that stuff for editorials.
I would normally find what Rohrer did very distasteful but I just don't respect the quality of game reviews enough anymore to care.
@razielcuts Regarding the Besties, that's Russ FRUSHTICK. I know, I know two Russ's in one office? That's gotta be a first.
Doesn't look too bad to me. More importantly, my son likes the look of it, and seeing that it's a kid's movie I'm gonna put more value on his opinion than yours or mine.
They have the pedigree to get away with it easily. Especially when all the "From the makers of Call of Duty..." trailers start hitting the TV.
I bet they use "From the CREATORS of Call of Duty".
They got some big expectations to live up to and this game would be judged primarily on its multiplayer regardless so I think it's smart for them to focus 100% on it.
Bay's Transformers movies are dumb and the Dinobots are dumb so I'm firmly in the "Whatever" camp.
