    So this game got a 5 from someone who isn't even a known writer for the site, so why should I care exactly? unless you are really telling me that a no name writer can say something is better almost every other game save a few exceptions like Bioshock or Last of Us, if this isn't game of the month then the perfect score is dead to GR.

    1) I don't think he's an unknown writer. 2) It's an opinion, that's all. 3) Why can't someone who you don't know express their opinion? 4) Remember that 5/5 doesn't mean 100%, it's anything upward of 90%.

    1) if you have to think about it then thats not well known or you would be entirely sure. 2) I understand that it is Opinion thats all game reviews are. 3) People I don't know can express their opinion but it doesn't hold the same weight or value as much as some you know better. An example of this would be you be if you went to a doctors office and you had a regular doctor who has built up credibility with you over the time you have been with them, now compare that to a new doctor you don't recognize you wouldn't trust them as easily even though they are still a doctor like the other one because you don't know them as well. 4) I understand 5/5 isn't perfect but it still means a lot when a site rarely gives out perfect scores, for example things like Batman:AA won game of the year but still on received a 4.5 out of 5

    This game is apparently as good as Bioshock infinite and The Last of Us. :/ These scores are silly.

    A short story and little to no replay value should not merit a perfect score. Moving on..

    Length of the story doesn't matter, as long as it makes an emotional impact on the player, which this game clearly did with this reviewer
