Ya know, this is something that has been bothering me, for a good while. There are tons of good games out there... great ones, even, that many people don't even dare to try out. Games that might not have the best graphics, or that might not have been made by the most acclaimed developer out there... but that are pretty enjoyable, and sometimes can be even more addictive than those so-called "AAA titles".
Yet, why do they remain unknown? There are many factors, like target audiences, release dates colliding with more popular franchises being released, etc... But one of them is surely their review scores. Just because a game gets a 7 outta 10, does it diserve to be ignored, or mocked all the way to kingdom come? Just because a game receives a 6... heck, even a 5, does that mean there's nothing in it to enjoy?
I dunno about you, guys, but I've been playing games that received no more than 7.5 scores that I've enjoyed far more than many games that had reveived scores over 9.0... Kinda makes you wonder if those scores are actually worth for something, huh?
