Re: General Gaming Discussion
I don't worry about reviews for a game I'm interested in. Reviews wouldn't stop me from playing Lost Odyssey (they were average), and reviews wouldn't stop me from playing any other games unless it's one I'm on the fence about. If I'm interested in a game, I'll buy it regardless of reviews. I understand reviewers have different tastes. A lot of 'em don't really approach a game objectively. You can see it in their writing. A lot of 'em have preconceived notions based on hype, whether they're a fan of the series, whether it personally looks interesting to them, etc. IGN is guilty of this.
