Yesterday I wrote a review of Hack Slash Loot. A review that actually started as a conversation with a friend on Steam. He was amused by my comments and we decided I should make it a little review on here.
Well last night that post got an anonymous comment claiming that I am "butthurt" and saying the game is bad because I can't play the game.
Eh, you guys know me, I freely admit I suck at games, that isn't much of an insult.
So yeah, no biggie.
But today that review has been getting an insane amount of views, which made no sense whatsoever to me, so I decide to check out the analytics and find that the views are coming from hackslashloot.com and Twitter. So I check out the Twitter post and found this:
I'm sensing butthurt, but it isn't mine. The game in my opinion (which is what a review is) is terrible. I suck at many games and still think they are great. Go to Steam and check out my recommendations, or look through this blog. Just recently I raved about how great They Bleed Pixels is. Do I suck at it? you bet your tits I do! Is it still a great game? DAMN STRAIGHT! I lost track how many times I died in that game, yet, that doesn't take away from the fact its a good game, and its fun, even with my constant impalement on spikes.
So when I say that I think the game is awful, it is because I think the game is awful regardless of my skill or lack thereof.
Reviews are subjective. Many games I love others hate, many games I love others hate. That's just how it goes. My reviews are just that, MINE, and I will give MY opinion on the game I am reviewing. This review was no different, except that my hate was described with more creativity than usual :p
Also..anonymous poster is outta luck, no more anonymous posting on my blog :)
Enjoy your night, hope you guys enjoyed my vid with the kids today and I'll be back soon to get my rant on :)
Ps...don't take my "butthurt" opinion..Here's another review for you to enjoy:
I don't give games numbered ratings but, if you're into that stuff the review above gives it a 4.4.
