If Game Marketing Used Negative Review Quotes

What if a big game publisher had in its marketing department a real drunky, like that guy in the picture? Well, OK, all game publishers have a guy like that in their marketing departments. But I’m talking about a real drunky, the kind who, when tasked with obtaining pullquotes from positive reviews of their games for the promo art, seems to find only the negative in even the most gushingly positive critique, even if he has to pull a phrase out of context to do so. I guess I am that guy, then, because that’s absolutely what I did last night after I went drinking. Here are the fruits of my labor. Note: Ron helped me.


1. Red Dead Redemption

2. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots



3. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves



4. Half-Life 2


5. Resident Evil 4


6. Flower


7. Super Mario Galaxy


8. Grand theft Auto IV


9. Gears of War


10. Dead Space

The problem with these negative review quotes is that they are not from negative reviews. In fact, these are from stellar reviews. I would like to have gotten the actual people who hated the game.

my quote for dead space review right now. “Intense game, but freakin stupid as hell!!” there. That is a game I would not play. “why play dead space when you can play doom” then there was two quotes. Isn’t there anything good corpse can comment on? well yes if you posted up something I cared about I would.
