First one is right.

I've never played a single Metal Gear game.

Now, be one, with the Dark...

The lady of us got 95, it's still a terrible game.
Can't you have your own opinion.

Ratings on there mean nothing anyway. I see this so many times... ''The game is rubbish, completely terrible (not actually explaining why, or giving valid critical reason) though I do actually think the game's around a 7 mark, it's currently at 9 which is ''too high'' so I'm gonna give it a 0 to balance it our ''fairly''

LOLOLOLOLOL. Unicorn logic.


This is why user reviews for the most part should always be ignored on Metacritic. There's a reason people make a living off reviewing games, because they're good at it. If reviews mean anything to you, use the critic reviews, unless you're one of those buffoons who likes to say "they all get paid off".

Skyrim has a 94...

what did we learn? ('-' )


That popularity kills the **** out of everything?


And, also a combination of streamlining and easing the difficulty of a game brings in more players, on both accounts.

Oh god. I know this has been proved to happen before, but it's completely against any ideals, so I don't consider it. It is annoying when you're looking at ratings and people say ''Psshhh obviously got payed off >_<''
I do agree with you though, a critic is a profession and they are professional. Also, I've never thought about it before, but I suppose it would be worth getting to know critics you like and tend to agree with too. Judging's hard, there's all sorts of bias, taste, variables that go into a rating, an anonymous user section is not one to listen to.

@Grimm, LMAO!
