a2) Are we to imply here, that averaging 64% on an aggregate website that collects review data/sound bites from a large number of amateur idiots that write for "respected publications" (their words) is such horrible news that you can't rate the game yourself as it stands? Cause, if i'm not mistaken then that's borderline breaking the "referencing outside material" commandment. Or it just is on GP. One of the two.
FlashTHD wrote:b) Seriously? Ok, yeah let's try that! Whip out a patch that strips out/sweeps under the rug/verbs of your choice 4/7ths of the game! Make the $50 it costs too much. Waste the budget Sega invested into creating the parts that will disappear, and so totally absolve the staff of any responsibility in creating them and anything else connected to them. Who cares, when I don't have to even look at those parts I thought were ugly!

It's not that he was raising Metacritic on some sort of lofty pedestal so much as he was pointing out the 64% rating, which is cause for concern, y'know, since that arbitrary statistic is directly proportionate to how the game is going to be received by the general public.
I don't get it. Sure, it'd be a tremendous waste and it isn't going to happen, but are you telling him that as a paying customer, he's obligated to sit through the garbage bits of the game because Sega spent a lot of money on them?

I was under the impression metacritic doesn't factor in scores/quotes from the general public?
