I wish I knew, I'm pretty tired of it too man

As long as it sells, and sells big, they will keep making them. The only solution is to stop buying it, and there are too many teenagers to keep that from happening.

Fuck those retard critics waving away a great game without second thought because they're not used to the games that aren't mainstream.

I can't stress enough: Do NOT listen to the critics. Play the game for yourself and you'll see what a mindless zombie autopilot fucktards they are.

Well, considering I am the only one who has posted a negative review of Risen 2, let me fix that for you:

And you're right, I should really play more games that aren't mainstream. Only CoD for me!

I'd prefer a SimEarth remake, being a geophysicist and all.

Yeah, double reviews! It'll help me forget that the Jaguars drafted a punter in the third round yesterday.

Game scores...and summaries like you put at the top, are the first and possibly only things I look at

(a) That's why they are at the top.

(b) The rest of my 1,500 to 2,000 words are sad.

I'm at a loss as to how your unorthodox 3-8 scoring scale could even be made to fit into Metacritic's percentile scoring scale.

I'd just do division: 2/8 = 25% score, 6/8 = 75% score (which I consider "good"), 5/8 = 63% (which I consider "OK"). I didn't bother putting 2's and 1's in the side description because (a) I rarely try to review games that bad and (b) they are so terrible they defy description.
For those who are curious, out of 793 reviews, I've awarded 10 2/8 scores and one 1/8 score.

The TRIBES forums group pretty much proved that as of 1.0.941.0 the Plasma Rifle is way OP

It is waaaaaaay OP.

I really need to get myself on Metacritic so I can bring that average down to where it belongs.

Hmm, seems you did get filtered... sorry, fixed now.

No problem. You are awesome!

2/8 for Risen 2? Ouch!

I really hate the combat, and the AI is poor, and the quests lack details, and the third-person view gets in the way, and it takes forever to level up. So, yeah, 2/8

Are my game review submissions hitting the spam folder again, Blue? I sent in A Valley Without Wind Sunday and Risen 2 yesterday.

That's interesting. Am I likely to ignore faults of the game if I'm a hardcore fan of a particular genre?

I think you're more likely to buy more games in a certain genre if you like the genre. For example, I gave Omegalodon a 5/8: if you like the idea of monsters smashing buildings in an online team-based battle, then it's $10 well spent. If you don't, then don't.
Hopefully, my reviews contain enough details, other than a silly score, so you can make an informed buying decision.
