To piggy back off of the article Metacritic vs User reviews…which is more important?  In which I wrote about, (inspired by “Feeback”, G4’s show led by Blair Herter) the startling direction — “the review angle”, in which they tackled before directly addressing the Mass Effect 3 ending.

In that article I focused on which is more important?  Now I ask, who’s more qualified to give a quality review? (I told you there were so many directions it could go in).

Metacritic vs User Reviews…which is more important?

While watching G4’s discussion on Mass Effect 3’s ending  they brought  up something on the show truly interesting that I don’t think a lot of people talk about.

On “Feedback”, the crew of Blair Herter, Nikole Zivalich, Stephen Johnson, and Donell Tucker all got together to discuss what I thought would just be a “full out” defense of,  I mean, their take of, the ME3 debacle, but in a twist, started off with something that really stood out to me.  Metacritic vs User Reviews and had a back and forth on which is more important. According to Blair there is a huge divide between Metacritic Scores and User Scores for ME3, with Metracritic scores resulting in a 9.3 and User scores resulting in 4.9.

This topic is interesting for so many reasons because there is so many ways you can go with it, coupled with the fact that I just came off doing an article calledCause and (Mass) Effect (3): What happened to the reviewers? And a while before thatDo you believe reviewers have to end a game before reviewing it?” I felt compelled to tackle this question head on.

Lets first look at the Developers:
