GAMES ARE GETTING WORSE? not so fast... - The Know Game News
00:08:08
A new study shows that fewer games than ever are receiving top marks with game reviewers (yes, in spite of all those «they were paid to say good things» memes). Does that mean games are getting worse? Or maybe there's something else going on…Linkdump: Written By: Eddy RivasEdited By: Ashley JenkinsHosted By: Ashley Jenkins and Mica BurtonGet More News ALL THE TIME: Follow The Know on Twitter: Follow The Know on Facebook: Rooster Teeth Store: Rooster Teeth: Business Inquiries: Subscribe to the RT Channel: Subscribe to the AH Channel: Subscribe to the Let's Play Channel: Subscribe to The Know Channel: Subscribe to the Red vs. Blue Channel: Subscribe to the Funhaus Channel: Subscribe to the Slow Mo Guys Channel: Subscribe to the Game Fails Channel:

I haven't seen a «first» comment get tons of thumbs up since like 2008.
Please stop. You're embarrassing yourself

no companies just need to focus on core gameplay more often and stop with
the over the top graphics which strains resources.

i think people are just turning into dicks more and more. it's like
everyone wants to have a negative opinion, almost 'cause it's cool.

Games are getting worse because their focusing more on graphics then how
the game actually plays

Also, I think reviewers usings a 5 star scale leads to a LOT of games
getting 4/5 which would be an 80%, but not all 4 out of 5 games are equal.

yes :( xbox and ps 4 are becoming giant market places and games becoming
different stores :(

We are more critical now then before imo. I can't believe Black & White got
a 90. I remember that game way back when and it had serious flaws and some
gand crashing bugs in it as most «ground breaking» games like the sims and
other games at the times.

10/10 they both put on sweatpants before they recorded this video so they
could go home and nap once work was over.

The more people play The Witcher 3, the more everything else will get a
lower score. Thanks CDPR. I mean honestly, thank you for setting the par
high.

I would love to see the list of games just in the 80-90 range

I think that part of the issue is that the game industry don't actually
understand what makes the games successful, and more often than not, they
copy everything BUT what made the game good in first place.
And they keep copying it over and over and over again, and the ball of bad
design choices keep growing and growing and ruining several games on its
path.
Things like QTEs, over-reliance on cutscenes, designing the levels to
basically force the player into the path the director wants, useless
collectibles «just to pretend you can go to other places»,
auto-regenerative life, shoehorned stealth levels, shoehorned water levels,
shoehorned shallow crafting, extremely limited range of character design
choices...

These statistics are very questionable… I persoanlly don't think that
data is factually reliable.

Back then, game reviewers didn't have to handle a lot of criticisms but
now, it's just a click away to receive them. This result to either
acknowledge the legitimacy of the reviews or leave most of us in question
to either the reviewers or their corresponding company.

Plus, games aren't getting worse but better because we're seeing companies
trying to compete with each other by delivering better products. They lock
each other's marketing horns and the consumers win in the end.

Personally I think it's just silly, there needs to be like a reviewers
guild or something for this kind of stuff… How many times Have we seen
one sentence reviews that simply say 10/10 because this game will be
underrated. Or 1/10 because this game will be overrated. It's silly really.

People are just getting stricter on what they consider good and also
nostalgia.

Yes, back then you didn't have to pay for dlc to complete a game.
Creativity and music choice was also better back then
