Every time a gamer sees a review score/article trashing a game/platform he or she likes, the response is often "lol, *site name*. But if its portraying the game/platform in a positive light, then it's all "i was right, lol."

Here's the problem: you can't just reject data if it doesn't fit your preconceived notion. Omitting bad/good reviews and articles yields incomplete results that could weaken your point.

My point is that gamers shouldn't omit things that don't fit a preconceived conclusion.
My sig will never happen, but it would be awesome if it did.

I don't read reviews of anything. My own tastes have rarely, if ever, steered me wrong.
As long as you're in my house, you'll do what I do, and believe what I believe. So butter your bacon... and bacon up that sausage, boy.

Everyone has issues on all fronts, fans, trolls, gamers, etc.

rottentomatoes is filled with "not allowed to describe" people who have the WORST opinions on anything.

Seriously.
A movie like "Broke Back Mountain" can score well.
But any other movie is poorly reviewed.

f*** rotten tomatoes
Old School Games FTW!

The whole gaming industry is terrible, like Hollywood.


I doubt this will ever change.

Because people are selfishly minded. They want what THEY like to be the greatest thing and get offended whenever someone doesn't like what they like. Some feel it as a sort of diss against them.

Some people seriously don't know the simple words of "It may not be the best thing on earth but I like it". It angers me when people can't simply stand outside their own heads and critisise something. The Resident Evil 6 fans are the worse I have seen since.....

This has nothing to do with gamers, it is people in general. Look at politics!
