people's definition of good doesn't outweigh the majority

The majority consider Persona 4 a good game, which is why it holds a 94 on metacritic.


Reviewers are not the majority. Nor can we trust their scoring systems.


When every review gives it good scores and pretty much every one who has bought the game says its at least good it have to be true. Is the game overrated? IMO little bit. Persona 4 was great game on ps2 and when you port really good game to the system which is starving from variety of good games it delivers much bigger impact.

Generally: gaming scores are subjective.. sales aren't.

Even if you interpolate most of the best selling 3DS/VITA software, they are mostly well received (meaning a lot of sales means the software is very appealing).

(ofc there will be exceptions)

CoDBOD is "weird". Sold a lot on the VITA but the consensus is that it is a sub par game for the MSRP.

I think the only 2 reason it made it on the 2nd best selling VITA software: Bundle and Brand Name.

Sales might not be subjective but they have very little do with quality if anything. Price and advertising are what drives sales.
