    I am Jack’s complete lack of surprise.

    Even if the game sucked, you just know it’s been hyped so much that very few would actually bother to point it out.

    Just look at last time. Apparently driving around your fat Russian cousin is one of the biggest videogame experiences in history. Yah!

    @9 Everything always looks different in retrospective. GTAIV did do a lot of rather impressive things, regardless of its flaws. Flaws they’ve clearly learned from it this one, such as the lack of optional activities, customisation, and the invasive nature of the phonecalls.

    No one has to be “in on it”, most reviewers are extremely impressionable. All you have to do is build the hype until it’s loud enough, and they’ll be discouraged from taking an objective look at what they’re playing.

    @26 Definitely with you on that one. I’ll be watching Quarter to Three closely in the next few days.

    @30 I think Chick will be fairly receptive to it. I’ve been reading his reviews for years now, to the point where its easy to tell what does and doesn’t appeal to him – immersion seems a big thing for him, to the point where immersion killing is a guaranteed low score. This game doesn’t seem to have that problem.

  36. Ireland Michael

    Regarding the whole GTAIV scoring controversy, there’s a bit of history behind that. Reviews for a lot of the major publications were essentially major journalists been given a few hours in a room to play the game. Rockstar was extremely tight fisted in regard to giving journalists full access to the game before release. It heavily skewed perspectives of the game,

    This time around, they just sent out review copies, without any restrictions. There’s nothing to hide in this instance.

    @33 Yeah, that’s why I’ll be looking closely. In my experience there’s really no telling whether he’ll indulge himself in a certain kind of mechanic, or just totally not get into it.

    That’s why intuitive critics are fun.

    He recently called Saints Row IV one of the best games in history, and he was very fond of the Lego open world game on the Wii U, so I think he’ll be comparing GTA V to those games, and woe be to Rockstar if it doesn’t deliver some of the same thrills.

    @34 Yes! :P But all you really have to do is look at the GTA IV reviews to see why it’s like that.

    @36 Hahaha. Nice one Dave.

    @45 Actually, most reviews being top scores is far beyond anything that’s likely.

    The Godfather is arguably one of the most revered movies in history. It currently holds a 9.1/10 average on the Rotten Tomatoes aggregator.

    GTA IV scored 9.8/10, and GTA V is currently tracking at 9.9/10.

    Let’s not kid ourselves here. Someone’s drinking the kool aid.

    #55 1 year ago
  56. DSB

    @54 Yes they do. They just don’t use it as the main metric, because it makes no real sense to aggregate data that doesn’t have parity.

    Rotten Tomatoes currently tallies 77 critic reviews for The Godfather.

    I count all of 14 on Metacritic, one of which is an 80. Kinda funny how the 67 on Breaking Bad gets lost in translation as well.

    It just serves to underline the fact that Metacritic is as much a part of the problem as the critics themselves.

  58. Fin

    @55

    I can understand why you dislike Metacritic, but why the fixation on the less-than-positive review? Does something have to have a negative review before you’ll trust the score?

    Just as a side note, that 67 for Breaking Bad is BS.

    #58 1 year ago
  59. DSB

    @57 Nah, it’s not so much that. It’s just a question of a very large group of people mostly expressing the same opinions, and scoring the same numbers.

    It’s anomalous to say the least, although sometimes it’s entirely understandable. The Godfather for example is a very good movie, but it’s also a rare one. There aren’t a lot of those in the world.

    Entertainment evokes different things in different people, it’s incredibly relative. Just look at the number of people who despise GTA IV. There so many obvious design flaws in that game, and the story seems to evenly divide people between the ones who hate it and the ones who love it.

    That’s not even remotely reflected in its reception among reviewers, and I think that robs those reviewers of their credibility, and certainly their relevance to the readers.

    #59 1 year ago
  60. Ireland Michael

    @57 Because everyone having the same opinion is tedious and boring, and shows a lack of critical thinking.

    Nobody gets upset over varying opinions in the music and film industry, but give two points less in a gaming review and suddenly everyone loses their shit. Criticism allows you to balance the negatives with the positives and come to your own personal conclusions,

    “That’s not even remotely reflected in its reception among reviewers, and I think that robs those reviewers of their credibility.”

    Vast majority of people love GTA (a vocal number on the internet is a very small number overall), reviews reflect that.
    Saying reviews should reflect the fact that a small number of people don’t like it is ridiculous:

    “The Godfather:
    10/10 unless you’re a teenage girl, in which case you’ll find it boring and 2/10″

  66. Ireland Michael

    @61 I’m not saying it isn’t. Heck, its the first game I’ve preordered in years. But gaming media in general is notoriously generous with scores compared to other mediums. This subject is about more than just this one game.

    @62 There are still plenty of terrible games being released. And the music industry is fine as long as you don’t listen to the record label shit. Most of the best music goes independent.

    @63 Yeah, how dare a journalist choose a slightly lower score than everyone else… point proven right here, @61.

    #66 1 year ago
  67. DSB

    @61 It’s obviously possible that GTA V is fucking awesome, but I don’t think we can kid ourselves that GTA IV is somehow one of the most amazing games of the last decade.

    Babysitting your idiot cousin? Fiddling with your pretend mobile phone? Running pointless errands for corner gangs? You gotta be fucking kidding me. I’m pretty sure your pulse would jump higher from reading Dostoyevsky.

    And besides, even if it was only a “vocal minority” (Woo, industry buzzword!) that disliked it, that vocal minority should still be represented, somehow, in the reviews. They were not.

    The teenage girl example isn’t exactly spot on, because criticism is as relative as entertainment itself. There are a lot of different ways to measure your competence as a critic. Some are great writers, some are great analysts, some are great historians, some are great technicians, some just have a great intuitive understanding of what they’re playing.

    Ideally you’d have a corps of critics that would span all of those qualities, producing a field of reviews written from very different points of view, featuring very different opinions, and hopefully maybe even different scores.

    What worries me though, is that most games reviewers aren’t even capable of properly defining criticism. Is it subjective, objective, is your responsibility to yourself or your readers? Why is your opinion valid? I don’t think most people writing this stuff has really asked those questions and done their homework, and I think that hurts the quality.

    Who was Lester Bangs? Who was Roger Ebert? Who was Pauline Kael? I would definitely throw questions like that at anyone before I considered signing them on as a critic.

    #67 1 year ago
  68. Ireland Michael

    @66 I once received deaths threats and stalking for a critical review.

    It didn’t stop me, because I know this sort of stuff is mostly hot air by these people, but never underestimate the extremes that fans are capable of. Gaming is the worst for this stuff. For every million vacuous loudmouths, there’s one that is genuinely messed up in the head and will try to act on their unhinged impulses.

    The GameStop review is getting blasted by people (mostly male) because the reviewer (a woman) made some remarks on the morality of the characters and how it fits into the overall experience of the game… despite the fact that she gave it a 9 out of 10.

    The thing with Video Game critics being somewhat generous is because the technical side in video games still counts for a lot.
    You could pour a lot of money into a video game and achieve the highest production quality possible and most of the time it will get you good scores.

    It’s not the same in the film and the music industry. You could make a shitty sounding record like mbv or Monomania in 2013 and it will still garner a lot of praise but top-notch recording process won’t give you any advantage.
    Heck, you could even make a black-and-white film without a proper widescreen like The Artist and you could still win a frickin’ Oscar but big-budget Roland Emmerich production can barely get a good review.

    There has been a marked change over the years but we still haven’t reached the level of other creative industries.

    #73 1 year ago
  74. DSB

    @72 There’s definitely unique problems to consider there, but I think it’s a parody that simply making a game that doesn’t crash and looks sorta decent means an automatic 7/10.

    And I’m not sure there isn’t room for a few grey areas in how you approach bugs too. Skyrim would be one example. If you were counting bugs and glitches, you’d be looking at a terrible mess, but that wouldn’t neccessarily be fair to the whole.

    Or more interesting, The Saboteur. The game is maybe only 85% finished, but it was so much fun to play, and it really did a few beautiful things, like the color returning to the world as it’s being liberated etc.

    I definitely think there’s room to discuss and disagree on how much those imperfections truly mean. But other than that I agree, there’s much less to worry about with a record or a movie.

    @73
    A parody is IGN calling Gears 3 “the spectacular conclusion to one of the most memorable and celebrated sagas in video games”.
    I mean, really? That franchise is the prime exampe in how technical expertise and a bottomless checkbook could get you a good score. I like Gears and I spent a lot of time in Horde mode but even I think that the 90+ scores for the entire trilogy is just too much.

    As for Skyrim getting a free pass I think it’s because of the scope of the game itself. Discounting the PS3 save file size issues, most of Skyrim’s bugs (and by extension most Bethesda games) are scripting errors. The game engine itself was amazing and the flowing water was a huge improvement over Fallout 3′s engine.

    In a sense, it’s easier to judge a video game objectively because almost everybody could recognize a well-made game and that’s why game critics tend to look/sound like sheeps.

    @77 I wasn’t saying that Skyrim was getting a free pass though, just that it’s a flawed game that leaves itself open to a discussion about how much those technical imperfections mean for the experience as a whole.

    I really don’t agree that it’s easier to judge a video game objectively as a critic, or that objectivity is the ultimate goal. You can emphasize the technical, but in that case you’re testing and grading software, more than you’re critisizing a creative work.

    I don’t see how you can turn “good” or “fun” into an objective metric. What’s good or fun to me is something entirely different to someone else. I don’t see how I can objectify that. It’s always going to be subject to my whims and intuition.

    That’s where I think a whole bunch of reviewers let people down. Instead of telling people about their experience, they think their job is to give consumer advice.

    This is one of the worst reviews I can remember reading. The guy basically just tells you a few random facts about the game, but doesn’t relate to any of it. It’s like reading the back of the box.

    “So yeah, it has all this stuff in it, but I obviously don’t care enough to tell you why any of it is great. It just is. It’s not like anyone actually reads this shit, right?!” *STAMP* Arbitrary score.

    I doubt he actually played the game for much more than an hour or two.

    90 rated games.

    Is this golden age of gaming? Or just journalists don’t give a fuck and just slap 10/10 for no reason at all?

    It’s GTA. You can do a lot of stuff there so it must be 10/10 obviously. Graphics are amazing – 10/10. Except that textures, water, No Grass just sucks so fucking much that it is not even serious anymore. I don’t understand people who say that it looks amazing. It looks decent. It is playable but no way it looks gorgeous or amazing.

    but hey, it’s GTA V and it must be 10/10 or I will be called a troll.

    You’re right that a lot of games journalism sucks (basically Edge, Eurogamer and Gametrailers are the only ones I properly trust to do a good job), but reviews aren’t meant to be objective.

    Gametrailers… Lol. Can’t remember when I last time saw a game from them with 7.0 score lol.

    Edge… Haha. I remember that shitty review of Splinter cell:B when they gave it 6 and all of the review was basically a gigantic mistake that never happened in the game.

    @65 Ha sorry I was honestly kidding! Sarcasm doesn’t transcend well online but I do think his reasoning behind the 3.5 was a little stupid. Just because you feel the motivations of the characters were off doesn’t mean it can bring the rest of the game down. I also read that the guy normally rates family friendly games (whether thats true I dont know) so he was a bit more easily offended supposedly.

    GamesTM is a very reliable but nowhere near enough praised source for reliable reviews, that actually makes proper use of the whole scoring table.

    GameTrailers in an insipid bore with a scoring system that wouldn’t be out of place in the early 90s video game scene.

    Here is a BS:

    ArmA III – singleplayer is not out right now there is only multiplayer. People love the game and reviewers rate it for 6/10 or 7/10 at best because there is no singleplayer right now and they can’t touch it.

    but GTAV. Oh no! that is a complete different story.

    GTAV – singleplayer is there but no one can’t play Multiplyer right now and 10/10 over the place.
    Look at the Gametrailers review where they say that they can’t play multiplayer right now but without it “GTAV TEH BEST SANDBOX AND FOR NOW WE WILL THINK THAT MP IS JUST A BONUS”

    fuck this.

    @89 ArmA 3 isn’t getting 6′s and 7′s because of a lack of single player. It’s getting 6′s and 7′s because its an average game.

    GTAV killed game news, no one dares making announcements today. Either that or it’s that Dave can’t stop playing it.

    Almost feels like the PR circus is over for this year.. Now it’s just the foreplay to the reviews and that will be that.

    #95 1 year ago
  96. Erthazus

    @93, It isn’t. It’s a very good game that is polished since the Alpha stage. There is no other game that did everything right with modern military simulation. It has a gigantic island and fantastic SDK where you can create everything you want.

    @98 I haven’t played it myself, but I can’t imagine that I would share that opinion of it either.

    But I don’t neccessarily want opinions that I agree with – then I wouldn’t be reading Quarter to Three – I want opinions from people who have something to say.

    #101 1 year ago
  102. Ireland Michael

    @98 Opinions don’t have to be the same as your own to be valid.

    He using a star system. 5 stars doesn’t necessarily mean 10 out of 10. His review is as ridiculous and over the top as the game is. That’s kind of the point.

    No, i tend to agree with IGN a whole lot more personally though, when it comes to scoring their games.

  104. Christopher Jack

    @101, Simple mathematics tells us that 5/5 DOES equal 10/10. Doesn’t matter whether or not you’re using stars or actual numbers, it does not change the actual fractions.

    #104 1 year ago
  105. DSB

    @103 Maybe mathematically, but sensibly it covers everything from 80 to 100.

    There’s quite a lot to be said for the absurdity of making 100 or even 10 tiers to represent varying degrees of opinion though. Someome must be VERY in touch with themselves.

    Ask a videogame reviewer how he’s doing: “On a scale from 1-10, I’m 5 points content right now. I’m 3 points hungry, and 7 points tired”.

    The US only has five different defense conditions to take them to nuclear war.

    Videogame ratings are srz bidnzz.

    So preorder never ever a game especially a GTA

    #108 1 year ago
  109. Christopher Jack

    @104, Mathematics also tell us that no, it can’t cover anything from 80 to 100. 4 out of 5 stars=80. If you want to cover anything between the gaps of 20 you can use fractions or decimals.

    #109 1 year ago
  110. Ireland Michael

    @108 Or you could simply just stop being headache inducing levels of anally retentive and comprehend that the 5 star system is used as a general and flexible barometer of quality and not as a literal number.

    5 stars does not mean “this product is 100% perfect”. The gap between 4 and 5 is so huge that such a specific numerical value simply doesn’t apply. That’s an arbitrary definition *you’ve* decided to give it, instead of trying to understand it’s actual intent.
