    I wonder if my i5-2500k can run Cyberpunk. Listed minimum required is i5-3570K, but listening to that wouldn't be very punk at all.

    It's probably fine. I just played Control and it ran great on my i5-2500k even though the minimum spec says i5-4690.

    To be strait-laced is to be extremely strict and uptight. Your strait-laced cousin won't be interested in joining the rest of your family in an impromptu dance party.

    If you know anyone who's extremely prim and proper, you can describe them as strait-laced. This adjective originally described overly tight clothing, particularly women's stays or bodices. The now obsolete adjective strait meant "narrow or cramped" or "strict," but because it's become unfamiliar today, strait-laced can also be spelled straight-laced.

    it's very rob zacny

    straight laces on boots because of orthodox discipline, or something

    yeah I sorta feel like having PC Gamer and Gamespot both score the game in the 70s says a lot about the prevalence of bugs

    kinda side-eyeing a lot of the perfect score outlets

    i don't really have a lot of faith in most sites that give numbered review scores to weigh narrative/storytelling/world building as part of their rating criteria

    Yeah seems like you could safely disregard all of those 100s

    Like maybe a patch hits in the next few days and this is a different conversation by launch, but like they've decided to run a scored review on a build that sounds pretty fucked

    I reflexively discount any 100% review because no piece of media can possibly be literally perfect.

    so if a site used a star grade, would you discount any 4/4 or 5/5 star reviews because they are inherently flawed due to the impossibility of perfection?

    Or is it just the 100 that's tricking you (because Metacritic converts non % based scores into a % for their numbers)

    thinking back to the small group of people die-hard convinced that the reason WotC revoked the Netrunner license from FFG was because Cyberpunk 2077 was going to have a full Netrunner CCG in it

    5/5 or whatever doesn't mean something is perfect in pretty much any reviewing rubric I've seen.

    But this is Metacritic though and shit is whack regardless.

    2077 as a mess that'll be better after a year of patches and which doesn't do much past the basic ideas of the material is about as predictable as the sky being blue tbh.

    I discount 5/5 reviews because no piece of media can be perfect.

    And 1/5 reviews for the opposite reason.

    And 3/5 reviews because that's just the reviewer fence-sitting.

    I mean it all comes down to what those of us who are pro gamers already know, the text of a review is more important than the score. But there's too much institutional inertia for us to truly get rid of scores, and a large portion of the casual audience just wants to see a score aggregate.

    i'm not sure what my game of the year would be right now but i also don't know how much of that is that it's harder to reach that conclusion when you've had a depressing year and there was a global pandemic

    Only a 90?

    That isn't what 10/10 or 100% means, and is a very high-school social-studies teacher marking your essay a 99% because "nobody's perfect" type criticism. 10/10 to me means that the game is the pinnacle of its genre and expands on it in notable ways. Hades and Super Mario Odyssey are not perfect games, but it's reasonable to call them 10/10s if you personally feel that they are the current pinacle of roguelite/action games or freeroam platformers.

    That said, I agree that it seems unlikely these particular 100s, from small outlets, are given in good faith; at minimum it's clear that those 100s require discounting a lot of negative experiences as fixable in the Day 1 patch, which isn't the kindness that a lot of other games get (e.g. Mass Effect Andromeda).

    You can't write me off like that! You're just a voice, pal! You don't know a DAMN THING ABOUT RACING!!

    the way it encourages the player to interact with the everyday lives of the inhabitants of this bustling city
    This feels like some marketing bullet point

    With Valhalla crashing and burning the only game coming that could topple Night Road off the top is Cyberpunk.

    And i'm assuming that is not going to happen.

    Maybe if I get around to Paradise Killer or Haven before the end of the year though.

    i'm not sure what my game of the year would be right now but i also don't know how much of that is that it's harder to reach that conclusion when you've had a depressing year and there was a global pandemic

    Subnautica: Below Zero is probably my leading contender at this point. It's still technically in Early Access but it's story complete. It fucking rules

    That isn't what 10/10 or 100% means, and is a very high-school social-studies teacher marking your essay a 99% because "nobody's perfect" type criticism. 10/10 to me means that the game is the pinnacle of its genre and expands on it in notable ways.

    I mean, okay, I'll rephrase:

    Review scores are stupid and do not provide useful information for making a purchasing decision.

    so you're saying review scores are like a 7/10?

    I was too bad to continue playing Hades even with god mode so it's actually a bad game

    Is it a game? Yes? 1/1.

    It is in fact a toaster. 0/1.

    If all my years of playing videogames have taught me anything, it is that attempts to create worlds that feel real end up always falling short of some janky indie game that isn't even really trying to do that because attempts to do that always end up with a ton of really artificial feeling stuff
