Witcher 3

In the past month or so a few respected video games publications have dropped giving scores to their reviews. Given that scores still matter for several developers and publishers out there, we recently asked CD Projeckt the impact of recent events on Witcher 3’s post launch marketing campaign and whether scores are essential for major AAA releases.

“I think that if a game is good, players will know that regardless of anything. If you play The Witcher and you think it’s good, just tweet or facebook or whatever about it to your friends. If you think we deserve it after you’ve played the game, we’d be honored. Scores are important, that’s true, but at the end of the day, we’re doing it for gamers,” Michał Krzemiński, Senior Art Producer said to GamingBolt.

Personally, I cannot disagree with Krzemiński. If the quality of the game speaks for itself, it will do well regardless of the critical acclaim. There have been several instances in the past where some games did not received any media attention but still became a hit among players. CD Projekt is one of the most player oriented studios out there and there is no doubt that Witcher 3 is shaping up to be great game. But what are your thoughts on this matter? Let us know in the comments section below.

    Reviews are important even without the scores because there is a lot of information out there and most people don’t have the time, inclination, or patience to go through it all. I tend to agree if a game is good you hear about it more and it does well regardless. However, a good marketing campaign can make it do even better.

    I like review scores but don’t always agree with them. Some are highly rated but suck, others are stomped on but are really amazing.

    I don’t trust the critics, too many games I’ve loved that got mauled by them, so obviously we don’t see eye to eye. I’ve played enough genres to know what I like, and if a game looks fun to play, it probably is.

    Wish more developers were like CD Projekt.
