This is What Fans Think About Forspoken Reviews
As you can see, the press reviews are entirely different. But what do the fans actually think about it? Reddit user u/Olgrateful-IW talked about the criticism of games in a thread, using Forspoken as an example.
Like most, I am aware of the criticisms, the reviews, the good, the bad, and the ugly for this game. Despite the flaws I am still very interested in getting and playing Forspoken, but understand anyone who isn’t. I am hoping after release this sub will finally see fit to regain its sanity. from Forspoken
The user mainly talks about how people who criticize the game and only talk about the bad things about it can’t stop. He’s looking forward to when the critics can just let go of their well-guarded criticism of the game and “move on.”
He’s not alone in that, either. After all, every player has his or her own individual experiences with the game, and those are important. Of course, players will encounter both the good and the bad in the process, and problems must be fixed and not the entire game put down because of it.
The important thing, he said, is that the experiences are reflected in such a way that the community, unsure whether to buy the game, can decide objectively based on the shared experiences by other players and the resulting reviews. However, highlighting and dwelling only on the ugly doesn’t help anyone.
