Jan 23 2012 11:46PM
I found the game dangerously mediocre/towards good (but not quite getting there)/and ok,somewhat fun.Still most of the internet and some of my friends think it's EPIC and it rightfully is the game of the year.
I finished the game,played the co-op a bit and all i could say was "meh".So glad i didn't pay 50 euro for that but had the chance to play it through someone else's steam.
Seems like the expectation of something great plus the fact that someone pays that kind of money for a game alters the way we judge a game.People simply won't acknowledge the fact that the game had a bad price/quality/quantity relation.
(Same applies for CoD 9000,HL:Episode 3 if it ever comes out and proves to be bullshit)

Seems like the conversation got a little out of topic.
My comment about how easily 10's are given included both games (and a lot of users using the site who give games 10's for fun).
I actually can say it doesn't deserve a 10.I played it long enough to feel overwhelmed and that as nice as the story was i didn't wish to continue playing as i got bored cause it felt repeating to me.
I still give it a high rating simply because i know that i might as well have a short attention span or something like that and because i recognize the work that was put in this game.
But i got bored.Ratings i make about games are based on my personal feelings,thoughts,standards and culture as a human being.If i rated games based on other peoples expectations or on the possibility of winter coming then i simply wouldn't be reviewing but running a TV show named "You name it,we have it!"
Jan 12 2012 12:54PM
I think you're rushing things a bit here.
Skyrim is indeed A VERY GOOD GAME and the few hours (at a net cafe) i played it i really enjoyed it.
Still i can't say it's (for various reasons which is pointless for us to discuss as the fact they even exist automatically restricts the game from getting a 10 in my opinion)worth a 10 and even if it's worth one it cannot be given the same year it was released because it has to prove it's value through time.
Also you mention yourself that how many few games are given 10's.There should only be ONE game given a clear 10 once per 1-2 years.
Jan 11 2012 12:43PM
Totally agree (about the peeves thing).It seems that people simply don't spend much time on writing an article.
Jan 11 2012 7:26PM
Watched and enjoyed this nicely made animation which tells us absolutely nothing about how the gameplay feels (like all other animations and cutscenes) but rather successfully implements action into our expectations for the game.
Still have to admit that this is definitely a game i'll put my bucks into as i'm an avid R.E fan.
Jan 11 2012 7:25PM
At some point (before any of the games released) i started thinking that i hate both companies and that everyone has been tricked into a very smart promotion trick (giant fight for the top,fanboy rages,clash of the titans etc.Basically continuous advertisements about both of the games everywhere).
I still do.
Jan 11 2012 7:17PM
I didn't think i have to clarify the things you mentioned as i use the term Diablo clone right from the beginning.But still you're right that i missed to mention crucial information and these kind of details.I really appreciate your backup and will make sure to be more precise in future reviews/articles!

Age of Conan had exactly the same increase in users after going free-to-play.
Although Aoc had also a bigger publicity boost due to the related movie remake.
