Edge's Let's Tap review: A disservice to gamers

10:00 PM on 02.09.2009 // Jim Sterling

Look, we're not here to say which reviews are right or wrong, and we're not saying that opinions aren't important, but Edge's review of Let's Tap is wrong and the opinions are completely unimportant. With this in mind, we definitely recommend that you ignore the desperate-for-attention, we're-going-to-prove-our-elite-status so-called "review" from Edge that has the entire Internet talking.

I'm not linking to it because it doesn't deserve to be linked to. Let's just say that Let's Tap got an 8. Like I said, we're not going to question Edge's opinions, as questionable as they are. By giving Let's Tap an 8, Edge basically said "this is not the greatest videogame ever made and we don't want to suck its golden, console-exclusive cock." That is a lie. That ... is ... a ... lie. 

The Let's Tap review is unprofessional and controversy for controversy's sake. We ALL know that Let's Tap is the greatest game about tapping on cardboard boxes ever made, and for Edge to not reflect that by giving it an 8 instead of a 15 is, quite frankly, emotionally devastating. As hardcore gaming journalists, we believe in toeing the industry line and giving a game the same score that everybody else gave it so there's a nice little column of the same number on Metacritic. If you DARE post a different number, you are unprofessional and should, to be perfectly honest, die

Your job is to make the reader feel safe and secure about his financial and emotional investment, and Edge failed each and every one of its readers with this horrible review. How are videogame journalists going to get the respect they deserve if they don't give perfect scores to important console exclusives? All you do is come across as a stuck-up little kid who is trying to prove how clever he is at the expense of the consumer. 

For your sake, please please PLEASE ignore the Edge review. Those lying c*nts.

This is a PSA: Never trust anyone who doesn't wet their toothpaste before brushing their teeth! Those people are clearly evil and their waifus are probably shit too!

Going back to Gravity Rush, I think I forgot how much I love it. The visuals, the interesting designs, the dreamy music, likable characters, and of course, just floating all over the place like it's no big thing. It blends together so well.

I don't normally bitch about life on the internet, but I need to vent. It's been a REALLY shitty week. Hopefully life's been treating my fellow 'toiders better.

Gotta go with Vaporeon as it is absolutely adorable and makes for a great Water-Type. I'd upload a photo, but my internet is being screwy.

My new least favorite type of team mate in Heroes of the Storm: they guy that declares the game is over after the enemy succeeds on one objective completion.

Hell yes. Nekro just pulled this from a Pokemon card booster pack. Don't judge me, I find the game to be fun, even if my deck is terrible.

So I decided to tinker around with some assets in Source Filmmaker and make a still image. Kind of a Jurassic Park-inspired thing with dino assets from that Ark game. Care to offer some comments, critique, etc.?
