23:44 - Zaphod I'm with Joe, screw the numbers, describe what's actually good about an album/game/thing
23:43 - moonflash Such a shame, I rarely game on my PC, unless it's emulating stuff and old strategy games. Used to visit gamespot in the past, that was before they fired Gerstmann because of corporate pressure. Lost all credibilty for me there.
23:30 - !J.O.O.E.! I think rock paper shotgun I'd probably the only review site I use now (for reviews). Funnily enough they don't use numbers haha
23:26 - moonflash I agree, but I've relied on their reviews quite a few times before buying a game and have never had to regret it, so I'd rather trust ign's reviewers than Metacritic ratings, which again are just numbers.
