Let's discuss some of the most ridiculous reviews IGN has done.
>Pokemon AS/OR "Too Much Water"
This used a common complaint but now that it was used in a review it's no longer ok to dislike gen 3's water routes.
Because it's definitely on the list of what most people would call "ridiculous" coming from a professional game review.
That and it's purely an example, if you want my honest opinion I don't like Pokemon in general and don't care how the games are reviewed, they're all complete garbage to me.
I just want to enjoy some other ridiculous IGN or other professional game reviewers take on games.
They were absolutely right but retards decided to take the bullet point and turn it into a retarded meme
The issue is simple, IGN is considered a "professional", and I use the term loosely, reviewer. So their scoring of the game IS NOT AN OPINION. Wikipedia and other review gathering sites will factor in that score, and a bad score... doesn't really mean much. But a perfect score might make it to the box art of a GOTY edition or some such.
How did IGN become so influential, yet so infuriatingly stupid?
But ORAS doesn't have that much water at all, most water sections are linear as well. Unlike the other games.
Another complaint was too many HMs, that is a legitimate complaint because HM mechanics are fucking shit.
>"Too Much Water"
It's been a long time since I played RSE, but I feel like they dramatically shortened the water routes in that game. Not to mention there's only about four times when traveling over water is essential in that game, right?
I feel like they were just trying to play along with the big joke those games have been a part of for years. It's like hearing your grandpa make a "pants on the ground" joke or something.
