Today, must be April fools day because this is just hilarious. As we all know Metacritic is a reviews aggregate site that gives us all a a hub for all reviews across several platforms. Well, it seems like Paradox interactive has take it one step further, launching a site that reviews the reviewers that do reviews (Yes, it really sounds that confusing). The site is live by clicking here. Here is what this site will do, “this new system will provide game-enthusiast enthusiasts with a better overall concept of these writers, and allow them to make easy read/browse/troll decisions before spending their hard-earned unique pageviews.” That sounds awesome!
“MetaMetaCritic will provide a more accurate, balanced system for reviewer reviews,” said Lars Larsson at Paradox Interactive. “In a landscape with so many diverse scales for rating games journalists, it’s hard to get an idea who the best writers really are. We all have different criteria for what makes a good review. How do we measure value and re-read value? And some of us try to base our ratings on abstract concepts like tone, voice, or whether an article was ‘finished’ or not. I’ve seen a lot of reviews get criticized lately for releasing day-one counterpoints – and don’t get me started on the ending of the Mass Effect 3 review.” Larsson continued.
Well there you have it. Meta Meta Critic a site where reviewers are being reviewed because they need to, Happy April 1st, everyone! I swear the stuff some people come up with pure comedy.
