Posted on November 9, 2011, Mark Burnham Glen Schofield Wants Your Help Boosting Modern Warfare 3′s Low Metacritic User Score
Here’s the full tweet, which appears to have been recently deleted:
I don’t usually do this but, if u like MW3 go 2 Metacritic.com & help our user score. It’s suspiciously low. Be honest but help if u agree.
Schofield spent his next couple tweets defending this request against aggressive douchebags and general player haters, who called him out for “begging.” Here’s one such douchetastic tweet, with Schofield’s response:
Personally, I don’t see anything wrong with a developer asking people who enjoyed his game to go and give it a good score. That seems like a perfectly logical and honest thing to request of your fans. Glen, haters are just always going to hate, man.
But what do you guys think–was Schofield begging? Do you guys see anything wrong with this request? Do you think Modern Warfare 3 honestly deserves a 1.5/10?
