this is why i'm terrified of spending more than $10 on destiny

i don't want to end up in a situation like those who were unfortunate enough to pay full price for this unfinished game at launch, and then later had to shell out another $80 for all the marginally more interesting content that was cut in the months before release

bungie refuses to allow anyone to pay for this game just once upfront awdood;

no, it's definitely bungie

activision just enables them

even if activision were solely to blame (which it isn't), bungie knew exactly what it was signing up for and is 100% complicit in these anti-consumer decisions

exactly, that and a few other things threw me off of it. Seems like it will be a repeat of the older game

i trust reviews to affirm that suspected mediocre or worse games are indeed mediocre or worse, as any reasonable person should

but obviously not everyone is expected to like everything that gets a 9+ on metacritic

>not having figured out something as basic and essential as how to use reviews strictly to your advantage by 2017

C.Mongler

yeah tec kind of nailed it lol, also if you just look at a metascore and use that as your basis you're kind of a moron. find a handful of reviewers whom share similar tastes and interests to you and follow their opinions more closely and couple that with your own research, duh.

also ffxv has a metascore of a low 8 anyway, which is probably fair. at that range of course a decent chunk of people will just find it to be garbage; personally i'd give it like a 7.5 as it had its moments but the story was just dookie.

can't speak on horizon as i havent had a chance to play it yet

srsly

there's an extremely basic formula to using reviews wisely



  • open metacritic page for game of interest

if:
  • score < 80

then:
  • close page and never look back

else if:
  • score ≥ 80

then:
  • glean handful of random reviews from reputable sources for general information about strengths and weaknesses and noteworthy points regarding title in question

if:
  • strengths > weaknesses sufficiently to justify current retail price of game

then:
  • buy game

else if:
  • strengths > weaknesses insufficiently to justify current retail price of game

then:
  • wait for adequate price drop

else if:
  • strengths < weaknesses

then:
  • close pages and never look back




and that's how you use metacritic strictly to your advantage each and every time

it's a very useful tool for saving time/money/frustration that would otherwise be wasted on garbage games

anyone who hates or shuns metacritic simply doesn't know how to use it, or enjoys having their time and money spent foolishly, or both

idk man i'm looking at http://www.metacritic.com/browse/games/release-date/available/ps4/metascore?page=1 and there's quite a few games i loved that i wouldn't have gotten to play because of that first conditional statement

[spoiler]and i unconditionally wait for sales baddood;[/spoiler]
