Gamers Embarrass Themselves @ Mmorpg.Com

We love games. We play games. That's why we are here. Sometimes we even give opinions on games. But at least we actually play the ones we give opinions on. In a kickback against the uproar created by a "low" score for The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, VG Resource Centre produced an awesome editorial politely pointing out that while 8.8/10 is in fact a pretty high score, the fact that the reviewer had played the game while the 70 pages of critical comments from gamers didn't contain any from anyone who had played the game didn't seem to enter the gamer's minds.

Once upon a time, there was an extremely hyped video game called "The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess." It was looked forward to by every Nintendo fanboy in existance. One day, two days before the game released, it was reviewed by a man named Jeff Gerstmann on Gamespot, who gave the game a score of 8.8 out of 10. Not content with the game getting a good score, fanboys across the internet erupted in anger at how 'low' of a score the game had gotten, despite never having played it.

Something dawned on me today: Opinions don't matter anymore.

Opinions? Meh. Opinions are like a******s, everyone has one and the only one you care about is your own. Read the full editorial here
