Submission + - What PC Gamers Think About PC Game Critics (wordpress.com)

DaneM writes: Have you ever wondered why the Metacritic rating for a given "AAA" (high-budget) PC game is often the opposite of the "User" rating for that same game? In this (short) blog post, the "critic top 20" games are compared to the "user top 20" games, and observations are made on the contrasts therein. Do Slashdotters think this is basic ineptitude on the part of critics, sample bias, bribery, or something else? How many new games have you blown all your spare cash on at a critic's recommendation, only to find that it's utter crap?
