Metacritic is a joke!

The first time I logged to metacritic, I thought that it was a wonderful idea. A place where you could find links, datas and all kind of stuff about game's and movie's reviews. With a fancy user based score added to the mix, intended as a mean to balance the critics and a nice overall score as an economic index about the trends of the game in the critical world. I know that the metacritic score was not meant to be taken literally. I hoped that everyone would realize that the metacritic score lacked scientific value. I laughed at the fears of the people who believed that the metacritic score would have influenced creative and business decision in a negative way. I was so wrong...

Long live the king!

If I could only travel back in time to the middle of the 90's what kind of result would I get from googling the RPG's acronym? I'm not sure off course but I guess that most hits would have been about pen & paper games: Dungeons and Dragons, World of Darkness, Call of Chtuluh and the other traditional role-playing games. Just try now and most result will be about computer and console role-playing games: for most people in the world, RPGs are just a videogame's genre.
