    So, Joe, since you're the gaming journalist here and know more than we, simple folk, do... What was bethesda's main platform? Obviously it wasn't the PC, since the UI is hell and it's more dumbed down than Oblivion. It seems it wasn't PS3 either, because the bugs ps3 users have been experiencing are supposedly the same as in fo3 (which is even weirder because it's a brand new engine! Todd said so!)
    So what, 360? Wii?

    Angry Joe, being the great gaming journalist that he is, should check his facts before claiming the Pulitzer. He should look at the sales of "Ultima III" or "Ultima IV" at the time of their issue and see if their sale figures coincided with those of some unknown "indie" games rotting in a musty basement. By the way, what the fuck is "Facade"?

    What you’ll Hate:
    • Its Incredibly Boring throughout the entire game – No real “Epic feeling moments”.
    • Awful Interface. Map & quest screens are nearly useless and buried under too many button presses.
    • The game is filled with Broken Quests, Glitches, Bugs, and Framerate hitches (every time you kill an enemy). Unforgivable.
    • Combat is underwhelming – Block, mash button, Push enemy up against wall, block, mash button. Rinse Repeat.
    • Crude graphics and Pathetically Sloppy Textures.

    Nice Skyrim review Joe. Oh wait, you're not talking about Skyrim there?

    If it hadn't been for the last thread, I'd have called this a far too obvious troll.
    Would chess "evolve" if the rules were changed to comprise of both participants ducking behind the table and throwing the pieces at each other's heads? Do you have any actual arguments to give other than "ALL GAMES HAVE TURNED INTO ONE HOMOGENOUS BLOB OF WATERED-DOWN ACTION GAMING FUCK YEAH EVOLUTION"? What the fuck are you even "angry" about? We're angry. You're not.

    Why do they let people like this make money? They'd make it about fifteen minutes in the film critic industry. "Hey, guys, I know you all like that old Citizen Kane movie because you're nostalgic and stuff, but I think Transformers 3 is a massive improvement in every way poss-" *sound of vault door lowering on hydraulics*

    They don't. They make chump change, so they are begging for every bone they can get. That's why they are bent on pleasing their masters, i.e. advertisers, i.e. publishers.

    1. You're comparing open-world RPG's with story driven RPG's which is just :retarded:
    (It's like comparing RTS games with turn based or grand strategy games) and you seem to prefer open world RPG's more. (Bias)
    2. Skyrim get's incredibly boring due to repetitive content. It has no innovation (Aside from the stupid dragon shouts) at all. You also completely ignored bugs in your score.
    3. You gave a game with obvious flaws a perfect score again :retarded:
    4. Thus you are just like every other journalist out there which get's blended by an "amazing" world with stupid quests and a dumb story-line and say it's better than pretty much anything that the gaming world has seen.

    I like it how every1 complains about the loading time.Finally consoletards get what they deserve.It is instant for me(anytime,anywhere) usually like a half second(but never longer than a second).Seriously this game has the shortest loading time Ive ever seen.

    Shit guys, maybe Joe is on to something?
    http://bestof.whatifgaming.com/2011/?page=31

    Best adventure game
    Best inspiration
    Best production
    Best dialogue
    Best RPG title
    Best environment
    Best storytelling
    Best game concept
    Most innovative design
    Best idea
    Best developer :thumbsup:
    And finally, GOTY

    Surely these gaming journalists know video games better than us, just like Joe.



    Now if you'll excuse me, I have to lay down.

    There are already threads about this Angry Joe person, and far too many Skyrim ones already. The fact that Angry Joe, gaming journalist extraordinaire, may or may not have posted in this thread, does not validate it one iota.
    Moving to general gaming. Mods there may choose to retardo or /gd this shit.

    But but I like his videos, well most of them, I guess that makes me a fan of sort. :P And how else would I know to avoid Sonic Free Riders or Mindjack. :smug: Still I asume he reviews Xbox versions of the game thus why he might not have encountered the some of the problems that are on other platforms.


    I think most of us have moved on with time, kind of hard not to with current state of things. But as a gamer you should know graphics are not always everything. There are lot of good games that managed to be great with minimum graphics. If you need exampels RPG Codex Top 10 are good indicators or take King of Dragon Pass for example.

    I dont know if thats how other people see you, me I see you as entertainer first journalist second. I have to disagree with the statment "them being outdated" since so relative, since you either keep returning to it or you dont.

    *sigh* In the end all that matters to them is making money. And currently the most profitable business thing to do is spew out medicore sequals, latest Final Fantasy Series for example.

    I guess your lucky you didnt happen upon Andrihaira in General Discussion while he was having another on of his personality disorders. :lol: The problem being lack of innovation, that companies are trying to sell as innovation.:?

    Anway Im curious when will you do Dark Souls Full review?
    So keep up the good work on videos. :bro:

    I lack the wit to put something hilarious here
    Oh God what done

    Yeah guys, I mean, C'MON.

    Oh that settles the argument then. Thanks for that.

    Yes, I can definitely see where your journalist credentials come from. Who here is arguing that Skyrim be turn-based or have worse graphics? And do tell me how gameplay has evolved. What are the huge leaps in gameplay from Daggerfall to Skyrim?

    Why is it that you guys are called journalists anyway? You don't hear of movie journalists or book journalists.

    You might? Well, you might not. I'd wager on the latter.

    Take indie games as an example of what?

    So Skyrim is not outdated in any way? You just pointed several indies that excel at certain areas, what areas does Skyrim excel at? Is it graphics? Is it AI? Does it have some brilliantly honed mechanics? No. What Bethesda does is content, and lots of it, but many here feel that content is supbar.

    This is a common excuse for dumbing down, somehow magically knowing that the original developers intended to make an exact opposite of the game they actually made. How were old games restricted, and how have they been liberated with the power of new technology? And you better not say that "Fallout was supposed to be real-time but the technology at the time prevented it. Also Civilization. And Jagged Alliance. And HoMM."


    Yeah, that's great and all, but how does this relate to Skyrim being a good game or not?

    I'm sorry, what's your point? If a game had a bigger budget it would be a better game? Is that it? Is that what you're trying to pass off as an argument for Skyrim being a good game?

    Where do we do that, exactly? What innovation do we complain about? The innovation in Skyrim? Could you please point out that innovation so we could have a closer look.

    Sorry for the bit of a bump, but I can't stop laughing at this clearly visible alt, and how everyone jumped on bait.

    Yes, but his listed occupation on his profile is ''internet celebrity'', so that already is too dubious. Game Journalist would be given by the real Joe.
