To be fair, it had Zelda to thank for that. I highly doubt the Switch would be doing anywhere near as well without it. Plus, let's discuss this in a few years from now when the honeymoon phase has ended. I do think Mario Odyssey will certainly make that jump even higher this coming holiday but what about two years from now? That bigger picture remains to be seen, though I'm hoping they prove everyone wrong during this E3.

The 1.5 million report was published on March 14th, though. And while the PS4 did sell 1 million units on its first day, it wasn't until 2 weeks later that Sony announced that they had sold 2 million PS4 units. So 1.5 million versus 2 million is not bad for the Switch considering that the PS4 is one of the fastest selling consoles ever and Nintendo comes straight from the sales fiasco that was the Wii U.

Eurogamer has been spot-on so far regarding the Switch, so I'm almost sure that Pokémon Stars is real

Tell me again why sales matter? when the Ps4 sold gangbusters, it didn't have a single worthwhile game to back it up. The Switch only has Zelda, and it's one of the most handholdy casual titles this year. Don't believe me? Look how much the normie audience is eating it up.

Never before will the US be so densely polluted with buyers remorse. Normies are picking this up just because it's hot. They don't know why or what games they want to play on it, they're just getting because they think everyone else knows what they're doing and the consoles constantly sold out so they want in on it. After people get tired of Mario Kart they're going to be wondering what they fuck they bought the console for. If you don't like non-nintendo jap games, this things going to be a fucking paperweight in a few months and most normie americans don't even know those games exist.

It's a very good console, but why you're treating this like some kind of triumph I have no idea. It's just good marketing.

>>16164

>So what games do you consider hard?
any game despised by game journalists and that's relatively unknown by the normal crowd and casuals. You know, shmups like Gradius and Contra which sadly faded from the public eye for having too much gameplay and not enough fancy cinematics and graphics.

You've made it clear that you don't know shit about the boss so your opinions about how easy you think it is not to get hit are uninformed and wrong. It's nothe a hard game, but it is comfortably challenging. Now go find another trough because I'm done feeding you.
>>
>>16126
Wikipedia says the wii had 3.19 million units shipped by the end of the year, and the console launched around the beginning of December. That 1.5 number came out around the middle of March so it's possible.

But you also have to remember these consoles sell out as quickly as they hit shelves, so these numbers are kindof retarded. Sales numbers are entirely dependant on production numbers, so you could boost your launch day numbers just by making more units. It's more important to look at how many units have sold by the time stores can keep their shelves stocked.

If that was true, it would actively prevent you from facing the final boss until you've explored enough.

Yes, and? Sometimes games need a little structure. If your boss is so terribly easy that you can beat him out of the starting gate, then you've completely nullified any reason I could have to explore. And no, I don't consider exploration "comfy". I despise that buzzword infact.

News tip: THEY'RE ALL LIKE THAT. You just don't notice it now because they're saying things that you agree with, so you've completely put aside their corruption, paid reviews, lies, and lack of any journalistic integrity, all because they like the new Zelda coincidentally around the same time that Nintendo had some extra money and needed their new console to sell.

Let's be honest here, Jim gave it that score because he was pissed at Nintendo's Jewtube policies, and wanted to stick it to the man by giving their most hyped game of 2017 a contrarian as fuck score, if it were any lower it would have been obvious the fat fuck was doing it for attention

Then why did it get acclaim from not only the critics, but the fans? You're saying the game isn't good, but the metacritic would argue otherwise. So that would imply that the metacritic is wrong, and that popular opinion doesn't mean a thing.

>>16224

It's a matter of not taking anyone else's opinion at all. Only one can determine for themselves if they like or dislike something. The fact of the matter is, you're still caring about their opinion, if them liking something affects your view about it.

Stop letting about other people's opinions of something affect your own.

>Stop letting about other people's opinions of something affect your own.
This would only be valid if I didn't also hate games like Zelda and TLOU for personal reasons. Them liking it just cements that they're paid reviews.

Now, if they don't like games, then those games could still be bad, but at least I know that they didn't slip some money to the websites via adspace and early review copies.

I've seen you say this a million times before. Last time you left because you got BTFO so you stopped replying. BotW perfected the open world genre. Tlou? It did nothing. Like I said before, movies are popular with critics and that's not going to change any time soon. God of War: My Wife's Son looks like dog-shit but you can bet your ass it'll get 92-95 or something when it comes out.

I don't entirely base my dislike off of reviews, but I'm just using simple logic here. Your game cannot be considered challenging or difficult if it receives high amounts of praise from the same people who make articles like pic related. It's just physically impossible.

Look at this person for example >>16243 . He pretty much said "Jim Sterling can be right from time to time". He's essentially validating his 10/10 reviews for Skyrim and Horizon, not to mention using the fallacy that eventually a broken clock is right twice a day. The problem is that game journos are the equivalent to a clock set to the wrong time, so they'll never be right.

If you're going to apply that logic, apply it to everything and be fair. Shovel Knight is a game that's liked by reviewers, and is a very casual game in general. Yet it's one of your two GOTY picks for 2014. Either dock Shovel Knight for those same flaws, or accept you give special treatment.

No exceptions.
>>
>>16252
Indeed i did.

>>16250
Because the ratio of gameplay to cutscene shit is terrible. And what the gameplay it has is pretty average to boring.

>>16255
Is the title in that picture supposed to be wrong? Because it's not. I used to be a little kid who sucked at video games but still loved playing them. It's not unheard of.
>>
>>16256

I did dock shovel knight for that, which is why Gigantic Army is its co-GOTY. The problem with 2014 was that there weren't alot of stellar titles that year, so it was more of a grading curve. That's why I explicitly avoided calling the game perfect, or even implying it. I'm not gonna pretend that Shovel knight is a hardcore experience.
>>
>>16255
So, as soon as someone becomes a journalists, he instantly is wrong about everything ? Jesus m8, you got some VERY serious mental issues. Get yourself sorted out

>>16259
No grading curve. No preferential treatment. No exceptions if you're already going to be that extremely critical. It's either one GOTY or not.

That doesn't really matter. A game with alot of gameplay can still be cinematic garbage, like pic related. The point of it should be the gameplay quality, and whether it can survive without the cinematic trash that follows it. TLOU fails this test, so it's not a good game. Yet it still receives praise from game journalists, so why do you trust these people with review scores now?

>>16258

If you wanna judge a game for a living and be paid for it, then yes, you should be good at the games.
>>
>>16260

When money is involved, logic and reasoning go out the window for paid reviews and adspace. See: Kane and Lynch.

>>16261

>No grading curve
Okay, fair enough. ThenGigantic Army would be the GOTY. Ironically I have more time in it anyway.
>>
>>16262
Because, unlike your autist self, i played the game and 98 is a perfectly acceptable score.

Now, your turn, why is 98 not a valuable score for BOTW. Until now, your retardation was that because shit game get good scores sometimes, then BOTW scores where automatically invalid.

I fear there is not enough synapse in your poor brain to make you understand the nuance here.

So, you want reasons not related to the game journos scores? Fair enough.

>hard mode is locked behind a season pass DLC, and you can't purchase it separately from the rest of the garbage that they peddle out
>ontop of that, the very implication that hard mode will be anything besides just doubling enemy health is laughable
>game constantly holds your hands with the mechanics, like the weapon durability system, which could've been good, but they don't teach you preservation or being mindful of your weapons, since they just give you several million anyway
>mechanics like rain which actively prevent exploration for no reason other than gimmicky physics. No matter what bandaid they give you to circumvent it, it's not worth the hassle in the first place
>relying on crutches like sex fanservice and several hours of cutscenes

So I took points off for it. It's not a perfect game. But unless it's over 90, it's not garbage paid off by reviews.

>IGN called Runner 2 one of the best music games of all time
And yet it was snubbed in favor of Dragon Age and Mass Effect. They also recanted and there were claims of being sexist because the girl character was pink. Gameplay stopped mattering to them.

>AM2R was also loved by critics and loved by fucking Kotaku
Are you kidding? Not a single critic even had the balls to give it an official review. The game was buried because Nintendo paid them to not touch it, or they'd be sued.

>All of these games were loved by critics yet they are on your GOTY list
They're not loved enough. As it stands, they just have cult followings, nothing more. Think of it like Wonderful 101 in comparison to Bayonetta 2. I consider the former better than the latter because it's not jerked off as much.

There is a barrier ( ie getting off the plateau) Straight to ganon is far from easy without AMPLE game knowledge to dodge gardians, lynels and assorted endgame enemies

back in the mid 1900's, there was a movement called New Journalism which enabled people to accurately and objectively discuss material on an intellectual level by sensationalizing or making the content much more interesting for the audience to read. this suggests that the content is fictitious but, it also explains that "factual orthodox" journalism is illusory.

You misunderstand the fundamental concept of freedom in a video game. Freedom is giving the player as many options as possible.

So I take it your second hardest game would be Call of Duty or Uncharted? "extremely hard to kill" is giving him a tad too much credit.

So if someone wants a challenge, they're out of luck? Sounds like bad game design.

>Yeah the hard mode is probably going to be lackluster but we don't know yet
I can take a guess that it'll be garbage since they don't even let you purchase it separately.

>That isn't hand holding. And this point again highlights how you haven't played the game
How so? Is it not disgustingly easy to replenish your weapon supply?

>This is actually the opposite of hand holding which you don't want to point out, the rain forces you to be aware of your surroundings
That would imply that you can prevent it somehow, instead of being forced to deal with a constant nuisance that ruins exploration.

>Sex fanservice and several hours of cutscenes?
no game should have these games. They're crutches for games, nothing more. Anything with them is barred from being considered perfect.

>Crossdressing as a joke.
It would've been nice if the joke was funny, or made the game better.

>Slowdown in a very specific circumstance that also drains stamina and can leave you vulnerable
The problem is that you can increase stamina way too easily, so it might as well not even be a mechanic.

>Yeah the pause to heal can be kinda lame but most enemies are going to be one shotting you in the beginning so it's negligible
Too bad they have horrible AI and can be avoided if you've ever touched a game like Half Life or Unreal Tournament.
