Ahh I give up, I can't think of any more sorry.

You do realise Gamespot were always biased against the Dreamcast?

I was taking the 'meta' score from gamespot, not the actual review scores given by gamespot. Sorry I should have made that clear. I would use metacritic, but they don't have a whole bunch of games listed.

As for this argument, I agree to be honest. But I really cannot think of any games that critics universally shat on, but I loved. Nor can I really think of any games that were almost universally loved by critics, but I hated. Maybe if I think or look harder I'll find something though.

Because gamespot employs more than one reviewer.

yeah i realize this..but still i hate their inconsistency! at least give the assignment to the person who did the last review...and if they are gone, then give it to someone who actually takes interest into the type of game. i have a feeling the reviewer does not like tactics games or card type hybrids.
