Way back when gaming was starting to get really big in a cinematic way, the titles on offer were all about shooting, looting and doing some more shooting. Sometimes on the loot. Stealth games weren’t exactly high up on the agenda for various developers, even after Metal Gear Solid had proven that covert espionage action could be quite profitable. And then Hitman came along, to prove that barcode tattoos on the neck were quite cool after all.
I get it. Not everyone is enamoured with the latest entry in the Hitman franchise. Gamers who grew up with Agent 47, haven’t exactly been bowled over by Hitman: Absolution, despite being a much needed new entry in the franchise that I loved. So what’s a jaded player supposed to do? Why go the nostalgia route of course! In HD!
I saw a tweet last night but unfortunately I can’t remember who posted it, but basically it was stating that the image below is the reason why Metacritic is ruining the gaming industry.
And when you look through this image you can quickly see the point and well it’s just not fair really is it?
