They just allow inaccurate reviews to stay posted on their site, but let's all follow their arbitrary numbers like the word of gospel, am i right????
DmC looks like a good game. I also enjoyed the latest Final Fantasy and Resident Evil games. I like video games.

If The National Enquirer and Cosmopolitan reviewed games, Metacritic would use the scores. People who even use Metacritic as a factor in game quality are silly.

You guys take this way too seriously. Reviews will always be inaccurate cause some people have different tastes. They still can be useful by providing the consumer more information about a potential purchase.

Is this your schtick now? Saying "dur, u guys take things too seriously" and then saying whatever you want like it's OK?

It's not going to work. On anyone. Just so you know.

Crimson. You've been here long enough to know howit works. Game X gets a good review from anywhere and everyone bashes it. Unless it's a JRPG from the same site. Then that means it's good. That is the GameFAQ's logic. The only reviews that are correct are high scoring JRPG reviews.
Regardless of how many people call me a troll I always speak the truth.
