IGN - Paper Mario Sticker Star only an 8.3
I'm pretty sure people took this topic way too seriously. Anyone "mocking" the 8.3 score by saying that it means SS is bad are just mocking the people that are hating on SS and declaring it a terrible game before even playing it.
Or maybe they're just trying to annoy people, I dunno.

I don't know what's more idiotic.
The idea that an 8.3 is a bad score, or the idea that the TC couldn't mention where the source was in the bloody topic title.
Oh wait! I get it!
You didn't point out that it was IGN because the site has such low credibility that most would ignore this topic.
Nice troll attempt man! 10/10 all the way!

Oh noes!!! ONLY an 8.3!!!! ALERT THE INTERNET!!! MANCHILDREN ASSEMBLE!! Seriously, how is 8.3/10 "bad"? You can't expect every reviewer to have the same taste in games/gloss over the flaws as much as the next site.

Since when's 8.3 a bad score? These modern gamers, I swear.

Actually reviews of Nintendo games are down across the board. They are all in the 8s at the moment since Kid Icarus. I think it may be a sneak tactic. Nintendo games sell regardless, 3rd parties have been using the old excuse that they can't compete with Nintendo. So most of these game sites are told not to hype the scores up, not that the quality is any different.
This should help cut down excuses if 3rd party don't sell. I admit it's only a theory and the 3DS like the DS does need the cut down for 3rd Parties, since Nintendo has always held them on hand helds. But it is still something to consider since there been a long standing idea that games get pay offs for high reviews. Nintendo has never been immune to that either, many people had the long standing belief that Nintendo over rated there own games in Nintendo Power, even if it wasn't true.
We can't use this Paper Mario as any kind of gage, though. Remember that Super Paper Mario git plenty of 9s, and the best things that had to offer were Story and Music not game play. There is always the question of back lash from over rating. Or the very fact that the reviewer actually liked Super Paper Mario over the first two. We could also have Anti-RPG reviewers, those people who was a Mario RPG and nothing else, or those who will except nothing else but Thousand-year Door copy pasta.
Unfortunately Reviewers like lots of other things are becoming very opinion based, getting an objective opinion is becoming less common. I blame the internet, smart phone, twitering, web junkie culture that is currently being raise and bred now. Anonymity on the Internet for kids raised on them, with no manners, and no retribution for anything thing they say, helps cement the idea that trolling and overstating everything is, oh kei. It just farms haters and over opinionated people you can't trust. It also lets BSer get around, you have no checks to tell if they played what they are reviewing.
I don't know what's more idiotic.
It says IGN in the topic title.

Baha05 posted...Yup and we all know an 8.3 automatically makes it a bad game.
This right here is why fan bases suck.
