I love today's review score system.

1-6 = Trash
7-8 = Decent
9-10 = GOTY


Since review sites almost NEVER rate a game a 4 or below anymore, yes, you have to take a 5 or 6 as "trash."

I miss the days of EGM when they actually used a true 10 point grading scale.

People still think 7 is average huh?

I guess they paid Destructoid off too.

9/10
"For once, I actually felt overwhelmed in a zombie outbreak, which is a real example of how next-gen technology can be used to do more than simply "make things look better." Out of all the launch titles I've played on both new consoles, Dead Rising 3 is my personal favorite, bar none."

As I look more into Destructoid's reviews, something does indeed look fishy to me. Arguing over a 7 or an 8 is splitting hairs. BUT they gave Crimson Dragon an 8 and loved it. EVERYONE else gave it 5's and hated it, with Games Beat giving it a 3.5 and saying it would be good game...for a $1 on iOS.

By reading review comments and forums of today's gamers.
1-7 = trash
8 = rentable
9 = buyable
10 = somebody was paid off

I couldn't care less about reviews.

A game can be faulty and still be fun. The DR series has never been perfect or exceptional, but I always come back. This game is no exception. Why? Because they're fun to play. Simple as that.

The first Dead Rising was great. But I HATED the second one. It was the exact same game, in a less interesting environment, with less interesting characters and without the neat aspect of photography. My thoughts on DR3 are thus tempered, and I therefore look to reviews to clue me in on aspects of the game.

Not that I'll be buying an Xbox One anyway until it drops $100 in price. :)

....And your point is what exactly?

That I've been a user of this site for one and a half years and only log in a couple of times a month to check the message boards as opposed to every single day for the last 7 years?

Again, and your point was what exactly?

DR3 could get a 10 out 100 and I'd still buy it. The game looks like great fun.

I apologize profusely if I offended any sensitive souls with my sarcasm.
