David Jaffe, Ready At Dawn Weigh In On The Order's Reviews
The controversy surrounding The Order: 1886 reaches far and wide.
Recently, industry icon David Jaffe and some of the Ready at Dawn members weighed in on the situation.
Check out the video below: I think one of the most important parts of the footage is when they wonder if people are simply posting super low review scores for the sake of attention; what Jaffe is basically calling "sensationalist scores." Furthermore, Jaffe makes the astute observation - one I've made many times before - that it seems a little weird that seemingly anyone can get labeled a "professional source" just because they're on Metacritic.
Bear in mind that Jaffe hasn't played the game in question; he's merely talking about reviews and the state of the industry in general and really, he's not far off. What do you think?
