I really do like it
I don't know where the page is, but there is a description that basically says "yea, reviews are opinions. We'll just give you a general idea through our experience". Wow, go figure. Being truthful. And the PAX panel really pointed this out.
dont mean to do a giantbomb vs. gamespot thing, but as a classic example, gamespots outlook:
"Wait, reviews are just opinions. Right?"
Actually, we don't think so. We make no excuses for our verdicts about games and believe our reviews stand for themselves. While our reviews, of course, do contain an element of subjectivity to them, we see the process of reviewing games as one that primarily involves the reporting of facts. To an extent, we naturally color these facts based on our own experiences of having spent much time playing other games in the past, but we make every effort to look at every game on its own merits, and we describe each game in the most factual terms possible. To this end, in the rare event that one of our reviews contains a factual inaccuracy, we will correct the inaccuracy and will acknowledge it in an editor's note that's appended to the end of the review.
seriously? Mr. Gamespot, you realize that 2 of my favorite games this gen are Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey, right? So you're basically wrong based solely on 1 person (yea, it can be debunked that easily when they set theirs up this way)
But its not about reviews, its about the whole entertainment of it all.
Long live the bomb!
