    An example of said clickbait would be nice. Because i don't think you know what clickbait means if you think giving a "low" review score is clickbait.

    Please actual context, what am I looking at? What does this have to do with clickbait? Since when did we do clickbait?
    Something to go off of.

    The context is GBATemp is considered a critic in this site, Opencritic. 69 of 70 critics scored the game above 9.0. GBATemp gave a 7.0.

    So you dislike GBAtemp because they have a differing opinion to what's popular?

    It's obviously clickbait. Dozens of reviews with close scores and only one this low, it's meant to get people clicking.

    Have you ever considered something called "Honest Opinions"? I doubt you haven't. Nobody has to give a super high rating just cause the game is good. The game has its flaws, and he decided to give that.

    Clickbait is different, if this was clickbait, it would be a shitty review, and something like 5/10 as a score

    No.
    Does it say "HERR DUHRR WORST ZELDA EVURRR O/10 2MUCHGREZZ"?
    It doesn't.
    It's not clickbait if the title is just "Zelda BOTW Review".

    That's not what clickbait means. Just cause i call a chicken a dog doesn't mean everyone else should accept that a chicken is a dog.

    *Implying an honest review with a score of 5/10 is clickbait

    A 7 is a "good" score. Just because someone didn't think this Zelda game was God's gift to the earth, does not constitute clickbait. Clickbait is what sites like Buzzfeed do, to lure people in with false intentions in order to get hits. "Zelda Is Horrible: Click To Read Why is clickbait", not "reasons why I didn't think Zelda was a 10/10".

    tbf i do think they aimed to score it low, the gbatemp logo is a bit like sonic in a whirlwind so they have to be edgy I guess, but idk, going out of your way to pick holes in stuff just to be different from everyone else seems a bit crappy and imho damages gbatemps ability to objectively review stuff

    I'm not saying they cant give it 7.0 and maybe they are right, but the excuses were a bit clutchy like someone reviewing their enemies cooking abilities....ohhh well you put too much pasta on my plate

    again don't get me wrong some points were perfectly valid, I also was like "HUH WTF" with the master sword being breakable and weapons breaking, I literally had to resort to throwing swords and sticks at the windblight ganon as I ran out of arrows :wacko:, there was certain aspects missing and some stuff was poorly executed, but again I got the impression the goal was to score it low rather than play and then decide

    as a old timey Zelda fan I would have been somewhere arounf 7-8/10, but as I have expressed elsewhere I like more linear challenging dungeons, the dungeons on Botw would have been the biggest let down for me which is where it would have lost a big chunk o' score for me personally
