The NovaCrystallis forum center Mognet Central have something like this, so I thought it would be good to do one for here. But this isn't about what events it will be at, or what year it will be released in, or how many millions it will sell, or whether the sales will be on the strength of name or game. This is about something more serious: what kind of reaction will it receive from the fan community upon release?
I've thought up four different tiers of expression for the pole below: "Wow", "whoa", "oh" and "ugh". I know these are extremes, but the pole that takes all views into account would be immense and rather impractical. I have also selected the game parallels without reference to my own feelings about said games. I am acting on what I've seen people being most vocal about when referring to them ("them" being both video game critics and the fanbase).
