Which hurts game-creators the most?bad critic scores or users bashing their game

The review scores. There is a reason they pay reviewers, not people on forums.

A lot of highly negative reviews would be more likely to put me off buying a game than a bunch of histrionic whiners on a message board.

Review scores. People whining on internet forums are the minority and our voices wont reach as many consumers as sites like IGN ot GameSpot.

both hurt gaming. Bad reviews hurt opening weeks, but Mass Effect 3 is a great example of a game that was ruined by dumb fans bashing it.

How was the game ruined? It sold well and they are still making DLC for it. You don't even have to download the Extended Cut if you don't like it.

Not to mention that it wasn't some tiny minority bashing it very vocally, but 90% of players requested a better, extended ending on BioWare's own website.

Seems like those fans aren't the dumb ones around here...

Users. Final Fantasy XIII. Got consistently good to great reveiws, but the way the internet carried on you'd think it was the worst game ever made, and somehow that reputation is what lingers more than the high sales and critic scores.

I say the consumer, easily. Critics, and their opinions and scores, mean nothing to me. Nothing at all. They're completely and utterly redundant as far as I'm concerned.

If the game gets bad reviews it can kill a game really fast, just look at Ninja Gaiden 3. If the game gets a lot of dislike by gamers then it can still sell okay: see Final Fantasy XIII.

CoD has no problems with the option #2.


Valid opinions isn't bashing. go on any random board & head to the game section: users praising COD series up to BO2. it's just the go-to, kiddie, mainstream shooter game. it hits it target.
