Not at all. You are failing to understand what critical review is.
you are not making a critical review, you are telling us your opinion as if it is a fact. and the opinion of all others is wrong. you are calling a game that got multiple BAFTA awards "bad". you are calling the game with the world record of most game of the year awards "bad".

you are literally trying to convince the world of something that is objectively not true.

you can disagree with the story or some aspects of the game (as some were with the direction the story went in part2), but don't call it "bad". it's just not true.

I'm not making any review, true. I'm simply pointing out that POPULAR opinion does not make for correct understanding. Oh, and news flash for you, I'm not the only one who thinks The Last of Us was not worthy of the praise it gets.

Last of Us was popular and was given praise by the press, however that does NOT make it an actual good thing.

People used to promote and praise the use of cigarettes, even doctors recommended them and we all know how that turned out.

Getting back on topic, people are complaining about Forspoken and it is not even released yet. This is the kind of sad whining which is what gives crap games widespread popularity and how good games get buried.

"sad whining" - Hello? Pot calling the kettle black :)

Isn't that exactly what you are doing now?

FYI I also know a few people (very few) who don't like games like Doom, HL2, Witcher 3, Zelda, etc. But unlike you, they know those games are good even if they personally don't like them.

Ah, ego based reactions. Conversation over..

The conversation was over the moment you made a statement of fact instead of an opinion. But I just went along with it since it's fun to see how people defend themselves against overwhelming evidence against them.
You keep telling yourself that.

It's one of my favorite pastimes here as I can find plenty of people who don't do even the smallest fact checking before they write something
Thank You for proving my point about ego.
