Seems about right.

One didn’t even try to hide it saying something like “PC master race here to give this game a 0”

Oh how mature they all are.

I'm convinced a majority of video game fans are just brats..just like those heavy in politics and cant separate their emotions. I wish I could tell these people to grow up but a lot of them are 30+ year old's

Hence, why user reviews don't matter. It's all about fanboys, like they did with LOZ:BOTW.

PC MASTER BEGGAR RACE! They need to wait a year or two for most AAA games, lol.

They should just cancel the pc port. It won't sell anyway, and if they protect it with Denovo, pc gamers will cry they can't steal it their rights are being violated.

He has a point though. PC gamers are 0/10ing purely because they of the lack of the PC version. Not only is that childish it completely undermines user reviews and makes them worthless.

No one should be using those numbers for anything, they're trash

And this is system wars not fanboy wars

I doubt it's just PC gamers behind the review bombing. Most are likely to be gamers who are fed up Rockstar games always getting so overrated by the press... Whether RDR2 deserves it or not, most of Rockstar's previous games have been overrated by the press, with a similarly large disparity between critic and user scores.

@that_old_guy: If a company wants to nickel and dime people buy staggering releases with no REAL reason, then yea, expect a backlash.

Meanwhile the game gets 10/10 for being a repetitive bore chore.

Keep beta testing for me. The PS4 version is dogshit. My servant.

This is objectively false. PC gets most releases on the same day. Rarely few years down the line. PC has more AAAs than any other system this gen.

This is why Metacritic's user review scores are irrelevant to a large extent.

Says the clown they are expecting to double dip.

PS4 incels playing the dogshit version, while having a much smaller library this gen. We'll be getting RDR2 after you beta test, but you certainly won't be getting that 100+ games deficit.

I wouldn't post a negative review unless I played the game and didn't like it, but I can see why people are revolting/review bombing. The game really should be released on PC at the same time as consoles. RockStar are greedy bastards that want to milk the game in as many ways possible. They want people to double dip, but I refuse to play the game on console.

I won't apologize for my PC gaming brethren (does a human apologize to an ant? A weed?) for shitting on console-playing simpletons, but they should not be review bombing a game. No honor in that.

The game was over hyped and will be over rated.

It looks nice but outside the main story is boring. You will spend the majority of your time riding between locations.

The controls are clunky and it's not a very good shooter. Then again Rockstar hasn't really been famous for it's amazing combat or controls so I guess that should have been expected.

We may have to wait but we get the definitive versions and at a cheaper price with all DLC included.

User reviews are typically shite across the board. The only ones that i'll really look at and read are Steam reviews, and that's typically only if they have a sufficient amount of time in the game.

Oh the horror.

Anything to be righteous about.

Its not about fanboy wars, it’s about PC gaming community/culture which has to do with PC gaming.

I didnt say anything like “Cows are so much cooler bc Hermits are doing this”.

that would be fanboy wars.

That's never been true. Fanboy Wars basically just means you make a topic about a fanboy faction... You don't have to actually compare two or more factions.

Don't you understand? When the Xbox One X released, all of the OG Xbox Ones were immediately transformed into Xbox One X consoles - just like all of the PS4s turned into Pros.
