    I think there's something to the genre / series thing too. There's something nice about the simplicity of @legend 's suggestion, but if you are gonna go that route I think like suggesting like Play Now because the best MOBA ever is released could be kind of misleading. It's such a specific type of game that to suggest to everyone to play it now seems a step too far. Then again I suppose you could just contextualize that somehow in the review or something.

    Yeah, not really critiquing your main point or anything, just making a general comment lol.

    I'm becoming more open to the idea of using video games as source material for movies, but until one actually turns out well, I just roll my eyes at the idea for the most part. 
    The new Hitman movie is really killing it, for instance.

    I think the old school style of giving a numerical score to graphics, sound, etc is one of the most useless relics of old-style reviews. Score the game if you must, but it doesn't get more meaningless than scoring a game's "sound."

    I'd prefer the review to stand on its own without needing a rating of any kind. But if we have to implement such a scale, I think your suggestion is a good idea.

    Scores are dumb and whatnot.

    I have an SNES now, but not in its heyday. 
    I think the Gameboy Advance would have been one of my favorite things ever if I had one when that was going.

    I went with PS4 over PC after friend peer pressure.

    Hey the thread isn't "Critically panned games you think are actually good."
    I just like it

    I filled up my 500 gigs long ago and upgraded to a 2 TB. 
    But even with a 1 TB I doubt I'd be installing and deleting stuff THAT often. Yeah, once its filled you've gotta delete old stuff to make room for the new, but I can't imagine you're flopping between 20 games or so consistently.

    After looking up scores, the only one I can think of that was really panned is Twisted Metal 3. I actually really liked Twisted Metal 3 a LOT. 
    I was also going to say Croc: Legend of the Gobos and Mortal Kombat 4, but those games got OK reviews (hover around the 70s).

  13. Paperclyp added a post in a topic What game(s) are you looking forward to next month? September 2015 edition   

    Metal Gear for sure.
    super stoked for Mario but I'm gonna wait for a Wii U price drop at this point.
    Tony Hawk is more than likely gonna be mediocre as hell but if it's supposed to be kinda good it used to be one of my favorite series so I'll get that.

    How about sprinting down the field in practice? How is that any less meaningless? Most ACL tears are non-contact.

    So then they get hurt in practice. 
    Get rid of practice? 
    I mean, there are probably too many preseason games, but injuries happen either way. Turns out football is a dangerous sport. 
    If they do get rid of preseason games, you can almost bet they'll try to extend the regular season instead.
