...games like Crysis, Uncharted 2, or Gears of War 2 would have lower scores on Metacritic if they looked like Ps2 games?

Of course they would. Although they'd be affected differently. Crysis the most, then Uncharted 2, then Gears 2 in severity.

That's kind of sad though. That just because a game looks good it gets extra points.

Maybe. From what I've heard, Super Mario Galaxy 2 has a completely rubbish storyline but it still got 10/10 from every site.

I don't think graphics should be counted for extra points. Pretty CGI didn't make Avatar the best movie of all time.

I doubt its extra points. All games are based on certain criteria and Graphics happens to be one of them

Yeah, that's why I don't believe in reviews.
To me, Bully/Bully: Scholarship Edition, Fable 2, Left 4 Dead 1/2, Demon Souls, Dragon Age Origins, Midnight Club LA, Splinter Cell Conviction, Heavy Rain, Assassins Creed I and Alan Wake are all AAA games.

But still, in terms of console war, ratings are the most reliable sources that present to us the quality of the games, so we have so we need to stick with them.

The problems with ratings in the console wars is that ratings are based on an average of a lot of peoples opinions where as people who make vids about the games are based on one persons opinion

I look at gameplay and take a risk. Sure I read reviews too but even if they give negative reviews I'm still usually willing to give the game a try anyway so long as the gameplay looks appealing to me.

That's what I usually do myself. Go to youtube and watch other people play it.

Same here. Gameplay can show a lot of things that they missed in reviews.
