@colonelkilgore replying to user reviews with AI-esque generated text is straight cringe, no doubt. I just couldn't muster so much energy about a game thar I've never played. I've played it and can't, It's too mid to deserve it 🤣! With regards to scores and system bias, to be honest the last few bigger reviews on this site have completely brought me round on whether there should be a score on a review. I've always thought reviews should have scores. Yet comments for reviews are a whole barrage of people who haven't yet played the game and can't have an opinion on the game, commenting about whether they think the score is right. I find myself pushed more and more away from it and towards video content (like your boy shill up) as at least I can see for myself what the game is like.

@R1spam I know it's not technically mandated, but the base-building stuff was a tedious waste of time in Fallout 4 and is a big part of why I bounced off that game so hard. Hate that they doubled down on it here.

@R1spam any energy you think I’ve expended is purely as a result of @BAMozzy’s wilful ignorance and continued straw man defence if you read the full conversation. Also, I’m not the one typing War and Peace with every post 🤣, so if we’re talking wasted energy… ‘maybe’ you’re tagging the wrong dude tbh! I just personally find the whole Game of the Generation-farce absolutely hilarious tbh and love a good laugh.

To your point about review scores, I generally like a review score to be given on the whole… it helps people who are pushed for time to gain an understanding of the games quality, albeit a less informed perspective than if you had actually read the review in full. I get you though, review scores seem to be so scatter-shot these days that it kinda renders them useless.

I feel like the internet is having a moment with regard to Starfield, like it does en masse with other games.

Microsoft should commission a Starfield anime series by Studio Trigger and patch it a bit so that public opinion can magically turn around and retcon the numerous complaints at the time that had nothing to do with bugs or console performance.

@Ralizah it’s pretty obvious this ‘moment’ is mostly down to the game of the generation/messianic rhetoric that was trotted out on masse by most hardcore Xbox-ers prior to its launch. If it wasn’t built up to be something that pretty much no game could actually be… it wouldn’t be as hilarious as it now is. This ain’t triggered… this is just most of the gaming community (who ain’t x-bots) in constant fits of hysterical laughter with each new news cycle 🤣.

@colonelkilgore I never got that sense. The tone of the rhetoric I noticed was people hoping and praying it WAS a big moment for Microsoft again after a string of bad releases and publicity prior to launch. Hopes peaked after a pretty good pre-release Direct that made the game look pretty cool.

Then again, I'm also not invested in console warrior nonsense ("X-bots;" c'mon lol).

@Ralizah x-bots-x-shmots, it doesn’t matter what term is used for people who post unrealistic rhetoric… whether you personally read/viewed it or not. As it goes, I was actually someone who while a predominantly PlayStation gamer was still interested in Starfield regardless of the pre-release hype beyond all hype… but the way it all played out just tickles my funny bone.

Starfield was nearly totally snubbed lol. Won't get any actual awards, since there's not a ghost of a chance BG3 doesn't win best RPG…

Guess you found it at least a little funny too huh 😉

@colonelkilgore Don't get me wrong: there's a cruel b*tch inside of me that found the sequence of events leading up to Starfield being TOTALLY snubbed at TGA to be extremely funny. It just feels like one of those situations where the rhetoric around it can't be trusted for a while.

I was initially going to play it on Game Pass, but eh...

@colonelkilgore lmao

It makes me want to do mean things with the name. I'm still fond of "Horizon Zero Awards" after HZD was mostly ignored in 2017 after being hyped up as a Zelda Killer.

Starfailed, maybe?

@Ralizah cruel-away… with the **** that is actually happening in the world today, a little spice spread here and there about video games is little more than a distraction from the horrors of the real anyway.

@Ralizah Starfield is worth a go. It’s not my cup of tea really but it’s one of the most obviously subjective games I’ve played, there’s clearly an angle where I can understand people loving it even if it’s not for me. I’ve noticed a lot more people laughing at the game not doing great than ones defending it to be fair, that’s just the nature of online discourse. It’s one of those games that I just don’t think is possible to judge without giving it a go yourself, there’s moments of genuine immersion if you’re in the right mood.

@Ennui There’s a certain level of quality that can be judged from an outside perspective. Usually in the sense of it being rubbish like that Kong game and Gollum. I usually err on the side of believing that every game should be played to be judged but with the rise of YouTube playthroughs and all that, a whole generation of gamers grew up never actually playing their favourite games. Persona being a prime example because a section of the fandom had the Switch and were too young to have experienced the games the first time round and so resorted to port begging. Something like Starfield though, with it being played entirely at your own pace and a lot of the fun being the individual stories unique to your playthrough and the exploration you do, I’m not sure that can be quantified by watching streams.
