Watch The Garbage Pail Kids and then watch one of the Lord of the Rings movies. You'll see.

Is that supposed to rile us all up or something? Make us cry because you think some games we like are bad? I personally don't fucking care what you think and I doubt anyone else here does either.

And why are you referring to them as films? They aren't films, they're games.

Now stop acting like a whiny little bitch, because that's what you've been doing this entire topic. The Internet isn't censored to conform to any one person's outlook, nor should it be. If you can't handle games and movies getting negative reviews, get off the web because there isn't shit that you, I, or anyone else can or should do about it.

I still can't get over the first sentence of this thread. I haven't connected a Japanese game with an anime since I was like 13 and knew little to nothing about anime to begin with.

I have never treated an English game like an A-movie either, they are games, not movies. On that note, I'm not sure if I've ever even played a truly English game.

Judging actors has nothing to do with a form of media being a film or a game or a webseries or a flash animation.

Plus last I checked, the only games I have seen being referred to as films have been Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls. So to say, the majority rule does not apply here.

maybe not you, but you're part of the majority that DOES treat a game like a film, always judging a good actor from a bad actor, that's what i don't get
If you didn't notice, films and anime aren't the only mediums that have actors...Live theater, musicals, audio dramas, etc. all have actors, and I can say that any actor in any of these mediums are shit if I want to, that doesn't mean that I'm treating them like films.

If I judge a movie negatively for its bad special effects, am I treating it like a video game; judging it by its graphics?

tell that to the last author i looked at who reviewed RE6,

i said to them: why judge the actors? it's not a live action film!
and they replied with: yes it is, it's the equivalent of one
So one reviewer saying that means that we all treat them like that? Games have actors, they've been around for a long time. They're part of the game, therefore they shall be judged.

To be fair I've been watching Screwattack, NerdCubed, ProJared, Classic Game Room and Tilt in addition to reading reviews on Rely on Horror and pretty much all of Finland's biggest gaming magazines (and a couple of foreign ones too like the Official Playstation Magazine and Game Reactor) for years and none of them has compared games to movies apart from the aforementioned Beyond: Two Souls.

Besides, games have voice actors too so of course that's going to be one aspect to judge when reviewing them.

but look at a individual user review for RE1 and you will find out that they all judge the voice cast and nothing more

I honestly trust a professional review a lot more than some random internet review made by "some dude".

See, something like that would never fly in a professional review. If all you take into account are some people's biased opinions you're gonna have a bad time.

You do realize that we're talking about a franchise where a significant amount of the back story is told through reading in game files, right? I quite enjoyed finding books to read lying around in the games. Not to mention that there are Resident Evil novels as well, which I plan to eventually read. With a book you can fill in the blanks and imagine whatever actors you want, as well as go at your own pace so you have time to think and draw conclusions about what you've read.

because if there's no voice cast that's what you're doing, you're reading the whole story like a book

that is something else i see in these reviews

some reviews have said: the acting is so bad that i'd rather have none

That wouldn't work well for everything, but Parasite Eve (and many other older RPGs) pulled it off nicely.

Acting is acting, regardless of whether it's in films, games, Broadway, or any other media, and is subject to critique just the same as any other element. Are you an actor? I ask because, otherwise, I can't conceivably figure out why you have such an issue with people critiquing one's performance. Acting is no different from any other trade, everyone has a different level of skill in it.
