So people buy the best games? Is this a new thing or something?


So, they are the "best" games because of a silly score? People who only go by these scores are missing out on a lot of great games.

I only go by those scores and I haven't missed much.

That's just it, though: You actually have NO IDEA what you might be missing.

No, the tons of reviews that are out for every release give me a very good idea.

people need to start thinking with their own heads and also research a game more then just looking at the scores that the reviewers give, maybe actually read those reviews

Sheeps love reviews but oh well. They will always be a follower, not a leader. Inferior specimens.

Hopefully this means that RE6's review scores will cause it to tank miserably. I'd be delighted if Capcom is forced to bury millions of copies of that piece of garbage in a landfill, ET style.

THIS

I hope that either millions of copies of RE6 are sent out into space, never to be seen again, or destroyed via nuclear explosion.

Translation: Reviews exist for an obvious reason, and they've always existed for that obvious reason, otherwise there would be no point to them.
