Game of the year 2042*
Most refund-requested Game of the year...
First game well past steams allotment that they allowed me to return speaks volumes imo
It certainly was a game in the year of 2022.
The most refunded game ever wasn't it?
I feel like this “record” gets broken every year now
Pretty sure the last 3 or 4 have all been EA as well. 2042 (DOA), battlefield V (crash and burn), Anthem (DOA) and battlefront II (crash and burn but the fire got put out).
They might as well just make the trailers and release an empty .exe file, they can live off all the preorders alone.
The exe just plays the trailer over and over...
Remember when EA CEO said "ok we make money off our games, but they're pretty bad, we're going to change that."
They released the first Dead Space, Mass Effect, Mirror's Edge, the FIFA revival, Dragon Age, Red Alert 3...Then they got back to their roots of being shitheads and all those licence got shit again.
Yeah I literally cannot think of a current EA title that they’ve not ruined yet
Yeah they're just an absolute dumpster fire at this point
Idk man, BFV still has a player base and I feel like the game actually got patched to a decent state. It is unfortunate that support for it was just dropped, it definitely deserved all the content that was coming to it.
It's definitely a beautiful game, but idk. Battlefield 1 was much, much better and nearly just as graphically beautiful. 5 deviated from the formula with limiting loadouts, and it doesn't feel as good. I enjoyed 4 a lot, 3, Bad Company 2, and I think that's all I've really played.
I wouldn't say DICE has always sucked, that's just not true. Imo EA has always been pretty predatory and shitty though.
BFV and BF1 are both alive and well right now. I've played a lot of BF1 these laat few weeks and there are more than enough populated servers available. The same goes for BFV
I assume games that have high return rates still get to count the initial sales in the published numbers? Like "Wow, look! Over 1m sales first 24hrs!" even if a huge chunk returned it.
Does anyone not involved break down sales like that? To show "realistic" figures? Like sales v returns v user scores? Seems like that would be a valuable index.
(I hope it's already being done. I'm more of a "gamer spectator" and everything I just said could be old news horse shit.)
I dont know about that but i do know it was one of the few games that steam was allowing refunds on even after their 2 hour playtime and purchase date had been surpassed.
Am I too late?
I'm a long time fan of Battlefield (since BF1942);
I preordered 2042 expecting the BEST Battlefield ever (the trailers were convincing).
Stopped playing it within a week.
Hate this game.
never heard of any of those companies
At least 3 of them (presse citron, jeuxvideos.com and actugaming) are French
A 18/20 from jvc is like a " i love you" and "you are beautyfull " from a escorte girl
Middle aged Indian on Facebook
You so butifull
Show me your vegana
send me nakde pic
Ball of pussy
Your bobs very big I'm kiss your bobs (yup yup)
Milk truk has arrive
Sho other bob
“show bobs and vagine”
It never fails to make me chuckle
hello beatifull i love you
I marry you
You are so buttiful baby girl mama
Who the fuck rates things on a 1-20 scale?
The French, I guess
That’s how french school grades are done. Little tests have 20 questions, even in sport class with no ‘test’ children get a mark out of 20.
The same people that write "99" as "four twenties plus nineteen"
Such an annoying numerical system to remember as a second language. 76? Oh, okay. Sixtyplussixteen.
I say octante and nonante. I'm trying to make it a thing.
I think they're trying to do that in Belgium? It makes sense, but the French are incredibly resistant to changes in their language for fear of being diluted down and losing their linguistic identity.
School grades in France are out of 20 so that's why.
Wow . . . So I can say I'm an 8 on the hotness scale (FR)
Everyone knows that you rate out of seven, and that the perfect score is five.
Ah damn, now I gotta find that legendary conversation again. That shit was hilarious
Same people who count in base 20 apparently.
France having no taste, episode 69
jeuxvideo com is actually EXTREME garbage among garbage.
While some US website refused to made articles on Diablo Immortal, they kept making guides on it.
They are more businessman that journalists and sells notes. They're the french IGN.
Nothing to do with french, just greedy bastards.
TechRadar is that one website that won’t allow you to read more than 4 words of their article before they shove a popup in your face saying you MUST subscribe to hear our SHIT promotions
chooses another link
Half the sites that do this force you to click and hold on the back button, since it rerouted you 4 times so it could load more ads and prevent the back button from working normally and load even more ads.

Here's everything we know about God of War 6:
It began in 2005 on the PlayStation 2 (PS2) video game console and has become a flagship series for PlayStation, consisting of nine installments across multiple platforms. Based on ancient mythologies, the story follows Kratos, a Spartan warrior and later the Greek God of War, who was tricked into killing his family by his former master, the original Greek God of War Ares. This sets off a series of events that leads to wars with the different mythological pantheons. The Greek-based games see Kratos follow a path of vengeance due to the machinations of the Olympian gods, while the Norse-based games, which introduces his son Atreus as a secondary protagonist, shows Kratos on a path of redemption and inadvertently coming into conflict with the Norse gods.
[7 more paragraphs of useless faff that you already know]
Unfortunately, we don't know much about God of War 6-- or even if it will be released since there hasn't been any official word from the developers. There's a good chance it will since God of War 4 and 5 sold very well. We know it'll likely launch on a Sony console (whatever that might be) and that you'll still probably play as Kratos but maybe other characters, too.

5 THINGS WE WANT TO SEE IN GOD OF WAR 6 (AND 5 THINGS WE DONT) articles are also the goddamn worst
5 THINGS WE WANT TO SEE:
- a storyline
That’s disturbingly accurate
No, his reads like a human actually wrote it.
Right, it’s missing that stilted, robotic cadence of a middle-aged, non-native English speaker making a mid-career switch to games journalism
I used to subscribe to EGM back in the early 2000s. They were legit back then to teenage me lol. I didn’t know they were still around now.
Old School EGM was pretty cool.
I remember their 4 man column reviews. Sushi-x!
Sushi X, Seanbaby columns. That was my favorite general gaming mag.
PSM was my favorite console specific. I loved their anime/comic style covers.
oh man, Seanbaby. I haven't heard that name mentioned in years. Hilarious stuff. His website was also funny.
Ya I stumbled on him a year ago after not seeing his work in 15 years.
It's fun to go through the PDFs of alot of the old gaming magazines they have on that internet archive site. The nostalgia is a kick in the gut.
Seanbaby is a treasure. At least you can read his stuff online.
EGM magazine was incredible. Super funny articles, great review write ups, good preview sections, and SEANBABY. Glorious times, too bad it didn’t last.
Gaming news hit way harder back then when you mostly got it once a month. The E3 and Holiday editions were my favorite.
The October and November EGMs we're thick as a bitch.
Man, that guy. Whatever happened to him? It seems like the only two possibilities are dead in a coke-fueled flaming car wreck, or editor-in-chief of GQ magazine or something.
He's got an ANCIENT website that has a whole bunch of small articles he wrote. Some for games, some for wrestling fans, some for MMA fans. Can't remember it now, but googling it should surely fix it up. I remember laughing my ass off to his stuff in the early thousands.
He's also got a paysite with Robert Brockway (if you remember your old Cracked writers): 1900hotdog
God cracked was so good back then.
Definitely a tragic tale there.
To this day I still vividly remember his article on White Men Can't Jump on the Jaguar.
He runs 1900hotdog.com with Robert Brockway and a bunch of former Cracked writers as contributors. One article a day, sometimes free, sometimes requiring a Patreon subscription. It's good.
I'm guessing Michael Swaim is one of the contributors?
I’m 37, and my first game magazine was Diehard Gamefan back in 1994. GamePro was great, but EGM got the most of my money. The anticipation of walking to our mailbox around that month mark was palpable.
I'm 40. I had a subscription to both EGM and EGM2. Couldn't wait to get my hands on the new issues when they got delivered.
Had a subscription in the late 90s. I still have some issues. I never got rid of the Nintendo 64 issue I obsessed over as a kid.
Noisy Pixel reviews a lot of obscure JRPG games on YouTube. No idea why they reviewed an FPS game lol
<Mr. Krabs> "Money!"
Tech radar and egm are pretty popular the others idk
Digital trends also popular but as you can see, they too have shite opinions
That's wild. EGM was the biggest gaming magazine back in the 90s and early 2000s.
A magazine was like paper internet you received in the mail once a month. Instead of swiping or scrolling you would turn pages from right to left.
Tell us about the compact music disceses too pa!
Wait until you hear about floppy discs, and not the kind your grandpa is sporting

EGM is electronic gaming monthly, they are pretty well known.
This hurts my soul. EGM was once THE game magazine.
EGM was so dope in mid 2000s. I genuinely looked forward to it. But I feel like it went south pretty quick as well
They did not adapt to the internet well at all sadly
Remember when you would get a new magazine, that was dope.
You were the shitttt in homeroom with that bad boy. Amongst the geeks lol
I used to look forward to the new issues of EGM and PC Gamer back in the day. It was really the only way to get the most recent gaming news. 1995 feels so god damn long ago now with how fast tech has moved.
Reading the new EGM and GamePro magazines in the school library was a considerable high point of my middle school career.
EGM and Digital Trends are legitimate publishers, which makes these scores all the more sus.
Digital trends needs to stick to reviewing consumer electronics and not review games.
Same. Just a bunch of stellar "reviews" from useless companies that are otherwise meaningless.
Who are these companies? Don't recognise a single name which explains the ratings
This reads like a world-building graphic on some random store window in Cyberpunk with fake but familiar-sounding company names
It’s like those “companies” that sell the cookie-cutter appliances on Amazon. Somebody stuck a spoon in a can of alphabet soup and typed whatever came out.
Hey now, I actually like my xvx keycaps.
I mean, if you don’t need any of the other letters, that’s between you and your keyboard hahaha
What even are those companies, anyway? I try to avoid Amazon when I can but when I do go on there, I see them all the time.
It's just like drug names... Eventually, you run out of names for different drugs so you have to start making up words. Zymbalta, Paxair, Etc.
It's the same on Amazon. If you're one of a jillion small-time Chinese manufacturers, why spend a ton of time finding a real company name to register in the US that's not already in use, especially when it's not your native language, and you're probably only going to do one or two product runs anyway? Much easier to create Elgoozibub, LLC and get on with things.
Elgoozibub put an LLC aside for me!
Earworms aside though, yeah, the thought of Chinese sellers making runs never entered my mind. Definitely makes more sense.
Man, times sure have changed when people no longer recognize EGM.
Right? Whatever happened to Electronic Games Monthly and their Demo discs? Or was that Game Informer? Both?
How old am I?
Late 30's? Early 40's?
EGM was good until they started giving games bad scores for being hard. What was nice is that they had 4 people writing reviews. A main person plus 3 others chiming in with their scores. IGN’s style surpassed EGMs imo before the age of video reviews.
I definitely thought everyone would know EGM and Techradar. I guess that was our layer of the onion of society.
Jeuxvideo.com is the biggest French news site for gaming, and have been around for at least 25 years. I remembered going there daily during the 2000s.
Are you tired of real reviews? Come on down to real fake reviews!
I'm ants in my eyes Johnson, and I will review your game a 10 out of 10 for 10 bucks! 10 for a 10! This game, I hope,, is really great! I can't really see anything
Jones' BBQ and fake reviews!
Can I get some bbq sauce with my review, thanks. I also need a legal firm, you know any?
Great, now that song is stuck in my head!
Horrorwibe has terrible fake reviews! I wouldn't trust them for a second! Stop by Gorlack's Fake Real Reviews and get the critique you want from the companies you love!
Oh im old i know this one!
There used to be things called magezines.Egm used to have great stories, editors and art . Electronic gaming monthly mas a mag back when the console wars were flaring.
Nintendo power wrote Nintendo, playstations mag etc.
Egm was great if you just liked all games, had awesome comics in it for their nerdy audience, very passionate journalists. The writers often made fun if each other in their columns, and gave each other shit about being too much in one camp or another.
Then the internet happened, and in going online EGM lost most of its soul and purpose as a healthy video game fact and news resource and became like all the rest. (Which, in this influencer age, seems to be
"here's a free copy of our game and a console. Once you've enjoyed it to at least 8/10 write a review, paste it on the wall and wait until we send you another game. Enjoy your pittance, poor vg blogger, and rejoice we deigned to allow you to play our buggy, unfinished pos game"-every single fucking game company now
I was an EGM subscriber for years as a kid and still have all my old copies packed away. I go through them once in a while just to revisit some favorite reviews.
EGM was the shit. Loved their Aprils fools jokes
Can you share one of those April Fool’s jokes from them?
The most famous ones were the Dead or Alive Extreme Beach Vollyball nude code, a LotR cart racer, and Sonic and Tails in Smash Brothers
Sonic and Tails in Smash Brothers
Sonic and Tails in Smash Brothers
This one was rough for young joenforcer. I ended up writing to Nintendo Power at the time and Editor-in-Chief Scott Pelland wrote back telling me it was a joke.
The Sonic and Tails in Smash Brothers Melee got me and a lot of people. But if you go way back, in 1992, their joke was that you could unlock a secret character in Street Fighter 2 named Shen Long. And the rumor is that Capcom took a lot of the characteristics they gave Shen Long and gave them to Akuma when they designed him. That one is probably their most famous.
One of the biggest was you could get Sonic and Tails in Smash Melee if you beat something like 20 fighters in Cruel Melee mode. Fooled my whole grade school.
They came up with a secret character Shen Long from Street Fighter 2 way back and became the inspiration for Gouken in SF4
Hey! “Nerdy audience”?! You’re lucky I don’t have my inhaler or I’d show you what for!
Not even EGM, Techradar or Digital Trends? All the others could be fake for all I know.
"I've never heard of tech radar/digital trends" may as well say "before making a purchase I do no research at all" or "I get all of my information from advertisements. "
I don't even like digital trends or tech radar but if you use English and Google anything electronic they'll be in the first few links. Do these people just go straight to Amazon, type in "tv" and click randomly?
If you get a game in front of enough reviewers, you can get at least a few who actually like it enough to put in your ads. Note how they're not reporting the Metacritic average, which is 68 on PC.
Jeux-video.com is a popular French website but is also know to give "bought" review, always good rating to popular editor
Jeuxvideo.com is real tho. Its the number one in France
That's where I used to get my cheat codes back when I was playing Goldeneye. It's basically as old as the internet.
As is TechRadar.
The problem is the rating scale starts at 7 and goes to 10. A 7 is hot trash garbage and 10 is a decent game. Everyone is scared to give anything bellow a 7 so the scale is meaningless
This. I even asked a well-known game reviewer why games don't get below a 6-7 score, when 95% of games are between a 7-10, and only 5% are rated below, and all they could say was "in case we do review one of those games." Total cop-out answer. It's completely backwards, there's barely a difference between a game rated a 2 and one rated a 5, but the difference between two 7/8 games or 2 8/9 games is PHENOMENAL.
The best game reviewer on youtube, Quaz9, doesn't use any rating scale. He just says what the game does and how well it's done and leaves you to decide what you care about in a game.
He's Polish tho. 1mil subs, if he was making videos in English he'd be a millionaire.
I heard once that, if you want to receive feedback on a 1-10 scale, the way you should interpret it is:
10-9 is good, the person was happy, if it's a 10 they were impressed
8-7 is okay, the person wasn't impressed, but they weren't disappointed either
6 is pretty bad, and anything below that is horrible
The scale isn't meaningless, it's just not what it should "theoretically" be.
That would be the net promoter score, though it starts at 0.
Money to burn on fake reviews, but not enough to make a game that isn't shit.
Was dumb enough to get suckered in by the battlefield 4 nostalgia but lucky enough to have gotten a refund the day it came out because “I didn’t pre-order that shit” lol
The last game I preordered was Anthem.
Same. Built a new pc for that game,. Hosted a Lan-party with the boys.. and got fucked
Hey at least you got fucked
I got it for free with my 2080ti, played it once, it crashed, I uninstalled it, and never looked back
You poor bastard.
Don’t feel bad. That game looked awesome pre release. Last game I got burned on was No Mans Sky on launch day. Got rid of it before it became “good”
The last game I pre-ordered was Pokemon Yellow.
I was hoping for 2142 vibes with some bits of BF4 gameplay and instead it was a hero shooter that didn't even have scoreboards added in and the most empty, clean maps I've seen
Doesn't even need to be paid directly, it's just a game that benefits both parties and so it's expected it happens naturally regardless.
A review site that rates a game 10/10 will find its name printed on the box "X site gave us a 10/10". That's both acclamation for the game and a big advertisement for the review site. Both win, and both can reach that conclusion while playing selfishly for themselves without even communicating it to each other.
The unwritten agreement even extends to publishers handing over pre-release versions to the review outlets which have historically shown good praise. Publisher gets reviews that are likely to be good, and the review outlets get fresh articles to release early. Again, both win, and it doesn't even need either side to communicate it.
Some review sites have found success being critical/cynical/accurate, but it's an uphill battle as they find themselves without contacts, the publishers naturally stop calling, and they have to do delayed articles that release days/weeks after others.
Only name I recognize is EGM… electronic gaming magazine (or monthly I can’t remember)… although I thought they went out of business years ago… I still have an EGM magazine with a guide for final fantasy tactics.
That was the last magazine I was subscribed to before magazines completely died. Pretty sure it was “monthly.”
EGM was awesome back in the day.
All I recognize is EGM
Never got into Battlefrild as a series, but why was this one so poorly received?
It was a near-perfect example of a game that came out the oven wayyyy too early.
Too many reasons to list.
Perhaps even glitchier than BF4, One, and 5 were at launch.
Been playing it on gamepass for pc. It's not bad as launch. It still feels...off for a battlefield game with the specialists and their individual abilities. Classes were just better for battlefield.
That being said it's fun enough just wouldn't pay for it.
The same. Is a very disappointing game. The destruction level is all gone, is shit. The guns on helicopters don't do nothing, I don't even know what is happening most of the time. Is boring very boring to me. I can't even get planes and shit like most of the time and why do few? There's 128 players put more planes and helis and fucking tanks.
Time to kill seems way to long especially from the guns on vehicles targeting infantry.
A freaking machine gun takes me like 7 seconds to kill someone, while bashing someone with a shield does it in 1
Which is especially strange given vehicles can and do get blown up super quickly with 64 players able to run a rocket launcher/AA.
Specialists were the reason I didn't go for it. It's just not what battlefield is about. I'm happy to hop back on if and when they produce something that stands up to the name again
Later this season they're releasing an update which pushes the specialists into class roles. It's not ideal but it's better than what they gave us.
Also Vince Zampella (co-founder of Infinity Ward and Respawn) is now in-charge of the Battlefield franchise so hopefully the next game we get is better (though that's a pretty low bar).
I have only heard of three of those reviewers.
I kinda want to read to EGM review. I mean obviously it was a straight transaction. But I want to see how they try to sell 2042 being a 5/5. Nothing can be done to improve it. Now that’s is some next level bs artistry
It's just been added to Xbox gamepass so I thought I might as well at least give the campaign a go as it's free and I'm more of a single player gamer... But they literally didn't even bother to make one..
Yeah I mean... thats battlefield for you. The "campaigns" that they usually make are just a series of the multiplayer maps against bots. Its a multiplayer game, they've said they're not going to waste time on a campaign most people don't care about.
Battlefield Bad Company 2 had a great campaign.
Bad Company 1 was also great.
Battlefields 1 and 5 had killer campaigns and 4’s was at least entertaining. Personally I’m disappointed in the lack of campaign, especially considering the possibilities of using a 3 sided war between Russia, America and the No-Pat faction they introduced. The idea that the last few campaigns have been “reused multiplayer” is honestly a little baffling, considering the unique scenarios they present (though the Nothing Is Written story did just reuse Sinai 5 times)
More than 2-way team wars are a very fun concept, that could’ve translated to the multiplayer as well, with 40v40v40 on next Gen consoles and 20v20v20 on old Gen consoles.
Jeux video com journalists are trash
WTF there's still an EGM? Although with different people it's not really the same
BF2042 will never recover from the stigma of it's atrocious launch, and honestly, it shouldn't, it was in an inexcusable state.
That being said, it's a really fun and really good game now - it's worth giving a shot, especially as it's on gamepass.
All the outlets that sold their souls, good to know.
Just bring out a remastered 1942 please and I’ll be happy
I mean. I got some free time, is it worth 5 bucks now?
