Five Worst Gaming Articles of 2005 ;_;

(1/6) > >>


Stan's review of Mario Tennis: Power Tour made Somethingawful's "Worst Gaming Articles" list. Apparantly it was cited for fanboyism, something which I never much considered appropriate for the staff of Planetgamecube as they all seem very level headed.

However, I suppose this had to be mentioned, and this looked like the best board to do it in (when considering the conversation that might follow). I can say I was very shocked when I saw the site referenced.  

King of Twitch:
Honestly the review sounds like a joke piece someone forgot to take down

I thought this one was worse myself

hey i only counted THREE items in that top FIVE worst articles of 2005 article

Ahahah, that's definitley THE worst gaming article of 2005.  But hay, it's somethingawful, so really it's a pinnacle of achivement for them.

It's funny how Ty picked the two games of this gen most deserving of a perfect score plus jungle beat.  

I did notice a lot of high nintnedo scores, but a lot of them deserve it .  Of course, a lot of the games up there didn't deserve the score they got (Mario Pinball, POKEMON CHANNEL?)  If we take games just publised by Nintnedo- not developed- we get more low scores.  Star Fox Assault, Polarium, Trace Memory....some of those up there were developed by someone else, I think, just shut up

But still, not all nine's, so THERE.
