"HOWL HOWL DESU NE" floored me.
I own Valkyria Chronicals and I have not finished it yet. I can safely say that the last battle, where I am currently, is a crappy battle compared to the rest of the game. Since I have not finished the game yet, is my opinion on how much I like or dislike the game valid? I happened to enjoy the pseudo-WWII story-line (which I think they told that way just to avoid stepping on peoples toes, in my opinion), although I thought a great number of the characters were tripe, as are most JRPG characters. I thought the game was a good first attempt at blending two genres that don't normally go together, and I eagerly anticipate more.Max-Vader said:What ad-hominem zealotry? Do you even know what an ad hominem is? I didn't attack him personally. I didn't say he is bad at it. And I know why he hates it. My problem is not his opinion - for all I care he could think that JRPG-players deserve to die. I'm bothered by the fact that his opinion is based on false "data", so to say. And that is where the "he didn't finish it" becomes important, because as I said he either played it not long enugh, then he shouldn't complain about the story because he doesn't know it, or he is lying.TetsuoKaneda said:Oh, I'm sorry, was there any point to your ad-hominem zealotry? Because it just seems like you and Yahtzee have a difference of opinion on the game, and nothing more. Way I see it, he played the game, didn't like it, wrote a review about what he didn't like, and then put it up here for public scrutiny. Why does it matter whether or not he beat the game? I haven't beaten Jade Empire, but I know I like it. Which is why I own it and will continue to play it. I do not own Halo, and I didn't have to beat it to know that I wouldn't even dignify it as a shiny frisbee. And the "he's just bad at it, that's why he hates it" nonsense? Stop. Please. That factors into everyone's reviews of games, not just Yahtzee's.

like? if someone says they are a nazi I'm pretty sure they mean racist first and foremost.Xelanath said:There's plenty more to Nazis than racism.Banok said:when he says hes a nazi sympathist I hope he doesn't mean racist, especially after all his "I'M NOT RACIST" mindwashing. but then I can't think what else he means... maybe he just likes the trenchcoats (well, who doesn't?).
I never said that. But you should know what you are talking about, if you make a review.Lord_Jaroh said:Why does a person have to finish a game in order to form an opinion on it?
As I said, my problem is not his opinion, my problem is that he was at some points wrong and ranted about something he had no clue about.He dislikes JRPGs, so why harp on him for sharing that opinion, when we already know it?
I'm not swayed by other peoples opinions. Also, who are you to tell me if I should watch/read reviews? If his reasons are wrong, then it seems perfectly valid to me to point them out. Why can't you accept my opinion then? Criticism works both ways you know. I can and will criticise everyone for being incorrect, no matter if it is Yahtzee or not.He was just giving us his reasons, and if you can't accept that, then you have no business reading/watching reviews as you are easily swayed by other peoples' opinions.
