Hey guys, so I was at gamestop the other day when Days Gone was released and watched two people cancel their pre-order just because they saw that it was rated low, and this made me want to discuss game reviews. I want to start with this analogy: imagine you can't taste salt, and a brand of chips were known to be sub-par because they were not salty enough. Would it matter to you? This is similar to profiling games based just off of their reviews, and not really giving it any other thought. Personally, i'm not someone that gets too into characterization in video games, (I do like it, it's just not really make or break for me) i'm more into the gameplay itself, so reviews stating that the game has poor character development is not much of an issue for me. Days Gone for example is a game i'm having a great time with, despite all the mediocre reviews. The point of this is that next time you see a game that's coming out that you are looking forward to and it gets bad reviews right out the gate, take the time to see specifically what they are knocking, it might still be the game for you!
