I'm so enraged at your behavior that I'll forget about ever having heard about it within the hour

I hate that people are so obsessed with boiling a game down to a number. It's a good indicator of the general ballpark of where the game's quality sits (an 80 is reliably better than a 50), but once you start looking at single digit score percentiles, it loses all validity. At that point, it's based too much on personal taste of the reviewer, and that's why I don't like how the higher-ups at game companies view metacritic. When you just look at the metacritic number to regulate bonuses of your developers, you're leaving someone's livelihood to dumb luck of who reviewed it from which publications and what else was going on in their lives to influence their decision. I'm not saying that a reviewer having a bad day will make them rate a superb game a 6 or something, but something that insignificant could easily make the difference between a 8.9 and a 9.0. That seems insignificant in and of itself, and it's almost irrelevant to nearly every consumer, but it means of a world of difference to the publishers who hand out money based on that score.
Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly was an abortion. As a game, it was just bad. As a Spyro game, it broke my heart after the first three cemented themselves as my favorite game series on the PS1 when Insomniac was developing them. That game is what taught me the significance of a game franchise switching developers.
If you have a Rommate that plays it, MH3 all the way. Bravely Default is pretty good, but MH3U is my favorite 3DS game (including Pokemon). It'll be almost a year before we see Monster Hunter 4 here, so you might as well jump on this one
I just bought it because I'm fucking stupid and want even more of my time to disappear into nothingness. Also, I got all 1000 points on 2017. I fully intend to get all the achievement points eventually, so I'll go with whatever class is needed at the time.
Gamertag: your fat uncle
I've spent literally weeks going after one achievement. I've done this multiple times now. Getting everything in Super Meat Boy was very hard, as was Earth Defense Force 2017 (I didn't have a co-op partner), completing all missions in Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2, getting the hexagon of all black pearls in Hexic, beating Ninja Gaiden 2 on Master Ninja, and a bunch of other stuff I can't remember at the moment. I generally try and go for the hardest single player achievements I can. I never bother with multiplayer since they can be so easily duped I just don't see the point when there's no challenge. Although, lasering 2 people in lone wolf on Halo 3 legit was a pretty awesome moment, and I did spend days trying to get that shot right.
@fredchuckdave: Sure it is. There's very little stealth involved in anything detailed in Naruto and as we all know, that's a historically accurate animated documentary of the events of the Sengoku period of Japan, where Ninjas were most prevalent in history and everyone had flashy elemental powers that they yelled out the names of while attacking.
