Maybe if they fixed the gameplay it would've scored higher ^^
Final Fantasy IX is the biggest garbage game ever created.

Most likely but oh well didn't expect it to be high regardless.

I have claimed Selkie and Ophelia from Fire Emblem Fates as my official Fates waifu's w/Azura, Caeldori and Sakura apart of my harem.

Mechanically so much of it is radically different than any other Fire Emblem. I wouldn't say the gameplay is bad/broken (which is the implication of it needing to be "fixed") it's just really different.
Also no waifu-simulator probably lost it a few points with people

Critic reviews are hardly ever indicative of the quality of a game. Gentle reminder that Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Sky got a 54 on Metacritic yet is one of the best DS, and Pokemon, games I've ever played.
Not changing this until Isaac gets in Smash.

Again: Critic reviews have no meaning. They're directly proportional to the amount of money paid to the reviewers.

User reviews are all that matter.

And using Metacritic or VGChartz is a high sin that deserves a paddlin'.

User reviews don't matter either.

It's either exteme fanboys giving it a 10/10 with little detail given or exteme haters giving it a 0/10 with little detail.

At least critics actually put effort into their reviews.

"10/10 bestest game evar"

"0/10 it was boring"

I'm not really that surprised, especially not after learning that this was going to be a mostly faithful remake. Gaiden has always been my least favorite Fire Emblem, and I assume a lot of other players would agree if they'd played it.
Pride is not the opposite of shame, but its source.

So basically, reviews don't mean s*** and people should form their own opinions by actually playing games? That sounds like heresy.

This.

Gaiden wasn't very good. I'm surpised that this game has mostly positive reviews.

Critics rated Birthright and Conquest almost exactly the same. They don't get good level and game design, lmao.

The fact Gaiden got relatively good reviews doesn't surprise me.
Conquest is actually good, there is a god.
