I tend to agree, its far too money based, which, it always will be.

Its a problem, I would rather have good games than massive sellers - I loved TimeShift, for example, as it was fun controlling time. It didn't do well, most people barely remember it, but I enjoyed it - it had a good story, and fun to play.

The big brands always piss about. Did you know that Metacritic was asked not to give any scores less than 8/10 for Tomb Raider Underworld for at least a fortnight, in case they damaged sales?

This is the kind of retarded thinking we have, and that's what my example sums up: if Bungie put shit on a disk and branded it Halo 4, every single 360 gaming magazine in the world would hail it as the greatest game of the year. They did it with Halo 3, they did it with Fable 2, Playstation did it with MGS2 (which was a good game, but got seriously retarded in places), and we get it with every new GTA.

Thats why we need completely independant reviewers. Ones that can be "sponsored" will never give a good review - and you see bias everywhere, IGN, places like that.

Gametrailers.com tends to be rather good, but even there you can tell when they are forcing a better result than they should.

Hell, its why I like TO for game reviews - people on here post about a game I am interested in, and I get to see a decent, player review from someone who ain't gonna piss around with a score.

I'd like it to be known that (a common theory) is Microsoft screwed up the Halo series, not Bungie.

I'm inclined to believe. With Bungie leaving Microsoft, I have high expectations for Halo Recon while the same could not be said if Bungie were still with Microsoft.

I find IGN to be rather unbiased actually(although they do prefer the wii.) and they do overrate games such as Halo3(Im sorry but does anyone actually believe it deserves a 9.5?maybe a 9 but 9.5 no way.) and underrate games like SSARPBC(supersonic acrobatic rocket powered battle cars it deserved at least a 7). Gametrailers is also biased towards the 360 a bit but not too much(I watched it on spike T.V. once and 25 minutes of it was about halo wars and then there was a short resistance 2 trailer at the end.)
Gamefaqs.com however is insanely pro-nintendo fanboy.

The only video game awards I pay any attention to are the Penny Arcade's "We're right" awards.
