First game in a while not to lose to hype?

#1TiamatKillerPosted 9/16/2013 8:23:34 AM
GTA V has been a long-hyped game, and I'm actually a little surprised at just how high the general ratings for this game have been. I'm disappointed that PC isn't getting a release date closer to the consoles but the fact that this game seems to be so good really makes the anticipation greater.

What do you guys think?

What do you mean "lose to hype?" Do you mean a game that wasn't overhyped?

Yes, that's what I mean. I didn't realize the title might be a bit confusing, but I am talking about the game supposedly living up to expectations (as far as reviewers go).

Professional ratings for AAA games are always high. They actually get paid to write good reviews, and get threatened if they give bad ratings.

Not that GTA 5 isn't good, it probably is, but we will NOT know for sure until we play it. Professional reviews mean nothing...

Pretty much what I was going to say. Professional reviews say its good? Shockers. Who cares? That has nothing to do whatsoever about it living to the hype or not. Player reviews will say that.

I think you'll all agree with these high scores when you play it. GTA 4 is nothing in comparison. That's all I'll say for now ;)

GTA4 got 10s, and was vastly overrated. GTAV does look like an improvement in every way, but still...

Professionals are just players who are better at writing.

They also get paid to do it, and need to keep developers and publishers happy so that they can get review copies of games in time to have the review ready for when the embargo is lifted in order to compete with other sources. Normal players and Youtubers can pretty much say whatever they want without consequence, which is why a lot of people find them to be more trustworthy than someone writing for IGN, for example.
