Does any game deserve 10/10?
I mean, I’d say Half-Life is my favorite FPS ever, because of the modding community. Everything about that game, I love, it’s singleplayer, it’s multiplayer, the mods, the communities it had…and I’d love to say it’s a 10/10 game, not everyone would.
I mean, 10/10 implies a game is -perfect- and really, is any game perfect?
The thing is, reviewers are humans, just like me or you, the ones who do this for a living enjoy the game and review it based on if they like it. Only way to, really.
I dislike Call of Duty, past Modern Warfare, they just did the same thing every year. Yet, it got 9/10, or 10/10 from big publishers. No, I don’t think they were paid for. I think those reviewers enjoyed the game.
That’s what these reviews are…reviews of their experiences with the game. They don’t care about details of it having been done before, they review it on how they like the game on their own list. So if they think it’s one of the funnest games they ever played, and give it a 10/10 - that may just be how they feel about it. Just because say, you played TF2 and think OW is a TF2 clone, so you think OW sucks(Plenty of these people, I’ve seen), doesn’t mean the reviewer feels that way too. Maybe he didn’t play TF2, or even if he did, his experience with the game was different.
Basically, stay open minded and realize it’s not a reviewers job to give a game the score YOU want it to have, it’s their job to write how they enjoy the game.
Also, I’m googling Battleborn and not seeing Overwatch on even the first two pages, let alone at the top, and I search OW all the time…so yeah.
