People purposefully giving 0/10 scores on metacritic

I have been checking the Metacritic scores intermittently ever since the reviews were released. Today, I was surprised to see that for both the Xbox and PS4, the game was getting a terrible score of 5.9 on Xbox and a 7.7 for the PS4 consoles. So, I clicked on each one to see what people were saying, and I was met with a never-ending stream of 10/10’s, with the occasional 9 or 8 which is to be expected. Then I start to come across groups of people giving it a 0/10, and their justification for that rating is because it’s not on PC or it’s just another cash grab by Rockstar. They have no right to do this, as some of them even admit in their posts that they do not own said console that they are writing a review for. There needs to be a verification system that both prove the reviewer owns the console, and the actual game. Reported masterpieces like RDR2 do not deserve to be tainted by petty morons on the internet, it is an insult to the people over at Rockstar and the genuine players who have invested numerous hours into this and given it their honest opinion. I say reported because I am painstakingly waiting until tonight to start playing it, and I cannot wait!

Yep, idiots do this on all the big game review sites.  It sucks and is one of the reasons I don't use them anymore for gaming reviews, I'll just watch streams to make up my own mind.  I'm glad you brought this to the forefront though as people need to know what's going on.

Who cares?  The only critic that matters to you should be you.  Everyone else is just voicing their opinions and those usually aren't based off good reasoning.  Played GTA last night and a guy in our group said he wasn't buying RDR2, cause it was nothing more then GTA in the old west.   He started ranting about all the idiots who was going to get RDR2 and started putting them down.  Then asked if I would be playing GTA tonight.  I said nope, I prefer the old west.  Conversation stopped.  He realized all his rants was insulting the players he had been playing with.

Bunch of sad bastards really. People Just shouldn't listen to their pettiness. At the end of the day, it is up to you about what your opinion is on the game, sure. Reviews can help you get a general idea of what the game is/could like. But watching/reading someone elses own opinion on the game, is not the same as playing the game  yourself.

Well, the game is pretty, but first 2 hours is for me close to 0/10. Follow someone 5 endless minutes before cutscene. Then shoot one thing and follow someone for another 5 minutes. Its tedious and just very boring to do in the long run. Everything is so slow and it takes very long time to do about everything you do untill now at least. Movement is not even close to as smooth as it is in Fallout or AC Odyssey and loadingtimes are like in GTA. 

The first 2 hours I havent actually played a game. I been following strict commands and pressed exactly the buttons im told in a very linear way. 

So seeing I think this is the most tedious and boring start on a game I played for a long time, I guess others feels the same...

A 2 hour tutorial?  That doesn't sound like a Rockstar game?

It's more than that, though.  They do a substantial amount of world building and storytelling in those first few hours.  

And I loved every moment of it.

Can I ask how long into this game before you are allowed to play yourself? Or is the whole game like this?

Preach brother....   

......and those 3 hours I played last night barely scratched the surface.  I really can't wait until I begin to free-roam but I am enjoying the lead up to that.  The scenery was amazing and I liked how they blended the tutorial with the setting up of the plot, characters, etc.

I can't put a number on it, but basically once you raid the rival gang place in the mountains, you head out of them and into a new area that's more of a sandbox style area

Not much longer.  I was taking my sweet time and when I quit last night, you could tell it was finishing up.  ....I won't give away any details to ruin the sense of discovery for others.

How is someone running it on their laptop? Its not even out for PC... Where's Pravduh when you need it?

If you're referring to the review, the person is full of sh*t (I'm assuming). I wouldn't believe anything from a 0/10 review.

Yeah they sure are, like who even creates a web of lies for a review of a game?

Trolls will be trolls...

What I REALLY don't understand is the people who voted those reviews as "helpful"... Those are the real di*ks.
