I wish. Then Capcom would release MML3, Sonic team would make a good game, and FFXIII wouldn't be so terrible.
The "facts" I was referring to were the reviews, not the general consensus (opinions) of Qoga being terrible. It was just easier to mention the metacritic since they also have links to the many reviews it received from various sites.
--oh, mailman's here......XD
Anyway, I do respect your opinion. I'm not trying to say "hurrdurr I think this game is terrible, so there is no way anyone thinks otherwise"SaturnineTenshi wrote:Because we can go that route, and suddenly the fate of role-playing games is not so bright and sunflowery when they're bludgeoned by less creative but better marketed titles with higher production value.
It should be obvious from my avid devotion to Falcom, but I'd be the first to complain about masterfully crafted RPGs from small devs being overshadowed by less creative, more heavily marketed games. So I have no argument there.
also, the two PSVitas I ordered came in.
See, Zeta: I don't mind this. You dislike the game, and I'm absolutely fine with that.
But let's be serious: I cannot see how reviews are no less subjective (aggregate or not) than opinions when it comes to video games or any form of entertainment media. Because that's what they are. They're bloated opinions renamed "reviews" by journalists.
I mean, Persona 4 was reproached merely for being a PS2 game (Game Informer). NieR was discredited by a guy who couldn't figure out that the "x" on your screen is an objective marker (1UP or Joystiq). Neptunia was lambasted by someone who had 3 or 4% trophies in the game (Destructoid). There's an article on Kotaku claiming all the (well-scored) newer Zelda games are shit. In her "Wot I Think" of Katawa Shoujo, Leigh Alexander said, "Whether your reason for playing a disabled girl dating sim is you like dating sim stories, you like sex games, or you like disabled girls, you will not be salved. There is absolutely nothing pleasurable or compelling about Katawa Shoujo, save for the fact it exists." (Rock Paper Shotgun)
I'm not defending Ar tonelico Qoga. Hate it. I just cannot believe that these people, being journalists, are somehow supernatural folk whose word is objective and categorical.
You obviously agree that these scores are subject to more factors than simply whether the game is universally good or bad... so I guess that'll have to be our middle ground.
Wrt Ys: I actually haven't played any since OiF for PC. Man, it's been a while.
