    So i been looking into some of the past ign reviews in order to understand how minecraft got a 9/10 but while looking i found this and just got more confuse in the first pic i notice that the numbers just don't add up also it see minecraft graphics are as good as MW3 according to ign

    but this is not all

    [​IMG]
    How are the graphics in metalslug worst that minecraft ? also look at the gameplay

    but there's more

    [​IMG]
    According to IGN minecraft looks better that Mirror edge

    one more

    [​IMG]
    Minecraft haves better gameplay that Monster hunter

    there more stuff that i dint post like Minecraft looking better that Okami according to ign ect

    after this i cant no longer trust any ign review as the seen to rate according to Hype.


    also i would like to see what other tempers think

    it's not that the graphics are just as good, or better. It's that they work for what they need to do. The charm of them, etc.

    You retard.

    A graphics rating isn't about how super HD they are.

    You, retard.

    It isn't like IGN has just one reviewer. It's just hoped, like with anywhere the reviews stuff, that the opinion held by the reviewer is shared by the majority of the staff. Regardless, nobody smart just looks at IGN for reviews. You look at a few different review sites to get a good idea. I will never use just a single opinion to try to determine if a game is worthwhile.

    Also, what Hells Malice said in regard to the graphics.

    IGN is a terrible place to go for game reviews.

    Stop it... Stop it.

    Also...

    This.

    Why call him names when he has a point? IGN's widely known as a bunch of IGNorant douches. In IGN everyone's a critic, their reviews are simply flooded with subjective opinions of the reviewers, which should not be present at all in journalism.

    Heck, most of the games I play and love have a 6.0 or under score on IGN.

    They are better than the majority of other review sites like gameinformer/Gamespot, 1 up etc.

    >review said it had better graphics
    >THAT MEANS EVERY GAME WITH A LOWER SCORE LOOKS WORSE

    Do you not know what the fuck an opinion is? Like how, in my opinion, you're an idiot. Then again, I think the whole board could agree on that.

    This has nothing to do with the actual reviews. His argument is that the the graphics scores are unfair because minecraft doesn't look like Crysis.

    Everyone knows IGN is shit, but yeah that REALLY isn't the point here.

    The gameplay of Minecraft is great though. Just because it's not finished and notch took it out of beta to go along with Minecon, cause hype, etc., doesn't mean it's not a great game. We all know you'll try anything to slander the game, and you're clearly failing at it, as no one is listening to the bullshit you spew. What's the problem? Are you butthurt that you've been banned from TempCraft and undoubtedly every other server you've been on? Take a hint, FFS.

    oh yeah of course.
    I forgot MC doesn't have hardcore guns and headshots, so it can't get a similar gameplay rating.

    They're two completely different games, you retard. You can't stick two reviews together and go "ohey rook dey r saim yes but not acktshully so mc r has unfair rating?"
    This is like comparing a puzzle game to a racing game that got the same gameplay score.
    "...but how puzzle game get same rating without cars n stuff? How you race puzzle game?"

    Doesn't help you're using IGN so no one can take this seriously even if someone intelligent had posted it with a compelling argument (and not just broken retard english).


    As for the graphics, I think i already explained there's no sesame street episode to teach you how a graphics score works...so i'm not going to bother trying myself.


    EDIT: I don't think i've -ever- called someone a retard so many times in my entire life. Especially not with such justification.
    I need a counter...

    Also IGN is a brilliant site, and you sir are an idiot. They aren't doing a comparison.

    all you do is name call and cant show valids points as i already say i am not asking for guns or anything gameplay is not about that the point of this ws to show how the IGN review of the full release retail game makes no sense

    The only person who this doesn't make sense to is you, and only you.

    Because your mental capacity is far lower than a typical farm animal.

    Well, I don't like Minecraft but it's graphics are what make the game, if it had high res HD graphics, it wouldn't be Minecraft... I mean, some of my fave games that I consider to have beautiful graphics are 2D games. xP

    wat

    Not sure if trolling, or just stupid. The survival and sandbox elements of it are what make the game. The graphics of Minecraft aren't the best (They aren't horrible, but they aren't great either), but that's what texture packs are for.

    Who's freaking out?
    I'm calling a rock a rock. I guess when you do it you're yelling at the monitor and smashing your keys in. Me, not so much. I'm gaining a quite a bit of amusement out of his replies, though. I'm brutally honest, not angrily honest.
