How would you guys rank the major reviewers (like IGN), in terms of who you think is the best?

I'll share my thoughts later.

well i have gotten to the point that ign does there reviews by sticking numbers on a wall then blindfolding them selves and throwing a dart and what ever the dart lands on is the score of the game (Razz)

i recently found screwattacks.com which is FAR better than ign. not only are the reviews of the games funny they score the games based on gameplay and not frames per second like ign does or any other technical problems that it might have that has nothing to do with the game

ROTFLOL! That's how I feel sometimes,

I usually look at ign and maybe a couple of other sites (and occasionly some of the customer reviews on amazon, depending on how sure I am about the game) and I've considered them pretty good on rating the technical side (although they get a little carried away sometimes) but they tend to underrate things like the story pretty badly. I'd give them maybe 7.3/10 (have to think about it though)

Could you post a link to screwattacks?

and another reason why i like screwattacks better than ign is that ign picked world of goo as game of the year and screwattacks picked brawl. now i know that brawl was not the best game ever but how could and wii ware game beat a real 50$ game. that is like saying that halo got beat by pac-man lol!

Best of E3

That game looks amazing, how can you not agree with that??????? I'm not being sarcastic either, I think that game looks amazing. That's pretty much completely contradicting why you said you hate IGN and like ScrewAttack, IGN picked a game that looks innovative and fun, it's a DS game, but the gameplay looks amazing! Gamespot and Gamespy also picked that as E3 Game of the Show, it looks awesome.

Anyways back on topic, I use IGN, Gamespot, and Gametrailers as my main sites for video game news. Then I go to Metacritic for reviews, it's everything, you get to see just how opinionated reviews are. With games getting scores in the high 80s all the way to the low 60s. Game reviews are stupid, they're just opinion, and they're not the opinion that matters, you're the opinion that matters, the consumer, don't rely on big name reviews, I've personally done it for too long.

im not saying that the game is bad or anything is just it threw me off because i thought that they would give it to mass effect 2 a game that got about the same awards as it its just weird i did not think that it would of won thats all.

wow the last post in this tread was back in 2009.... guess it would not hurt to post one more time in here.

this is more so some more of my hatred towards IGN than anything else. I absolutely HATE just about everything they do. The way they review things, the way they post topics that are asking for another fanboy war (NeXbox vs PS4), and the obvious hipocrisy. I always say that I will never go back to IGN but time and time again I somehow find myself on IGN. My favorite parts are praising Nintendo one week on how they are the greatest console ever (see here) then almost a week later about to close its doors and never make a game again. (see here) And its not just nintendo. i was looking at the vita topic and how poorly it was doing but that is all about to change because of one game that was announced that will make the vita turn to GOLD! really? one game will change the outcome of a system? (someone should tell nintendo to release only one game this year then). I have figured IGN out (through the help of some of the comments) IGN works almost the same as Youtube. What this means the more views a topic gets the more money they are paid. I understand now. Think about it would you read a topic like 'Next Smash bros coming soon' or 'Smash Bros Dead?' OH! and don't even get me started on Greg Miller. I cannot read a topic or watch a review if this guy did it. He will talk down a game making it out to be the worst game ever. Im still baffled as to why he reviewed ZombieU. One day i will keep my promise and never return to that awful place
