Why I Don’t Score Game Reviews
Have you ever wondered why I don’t score my game reviews? I’ve said this when I first started my channel, but I doubt most of you have heard this. It’s because a number is superficial and people are less likely to try something new if say it were associated with a 7. Doesn’t matter if there’s a lot of fun to be had with that 7. It’s a 7 … “I’m not trying it” is the mind frame of a sheep. But what I want to talk about today didn’t get a 7. Gamespot gave GTA5 a 9 out a of 10 today. Sounds good right? Not according to the coons raging in the comment section. Some of the things I was seeing makes you lose faith in humanity. The reviewer docked some points because she’s didn’t agree with the sexism found in the game. Sexism has always been in GTA, so I didn’t agree, but she didn’t like it & it didn’t make me feel any type of way.
A review is just a glorified opinion and her review doesn’t necessarily reflect on Gamespot as whole because they have hundreds of contributors to their site. Didn’t help that the one who reviewed it was a transgendered woman which just added flames to the fire. All this over because she gave it a 9 out of 10. “Die tranny … this trannies brain doesn’t work right … burn in hell tranny!”. These were some of the things I was seeing in the comments. Regardless of how you feel about transgender people it’s no excuse for this. The hell does this persons lifestyle how to do with a video game review?
We’re sending death threats to a person who gave a game an A minus. An A minus folks. The gaming industry surpassed the movie industry as the most grossing form of entertainment. Yet we still get no respect as gamers and this is why. What makes it worse is the average gamer is 30 years old. So a lot these comments are grown ass men. Most haven’t even played the game because it doesn’t come out until tomorrow, so how you know if it’s a perfect 10? From watching a few trailers? You got this situation going on Syria that could start world war 3, The government is taking more & more rights from us left & right & you mad a game got a 9 out of ten? Bruh….
