After playing with the Yooka-Laylee toybox for a long time, it felt great. I’ve been stoked for the full release for a really long time. At the time, I said, “I don’t care if the actual game is bad, if it plays like this it will still be fun.” So when Metacritic looks unfavorable toward Yooka-Laylee I was surprised! So I started to read the reviews. After having read 3 of them, they all, almost verbatum, said “It’s too much like Banjo-Kazooie… Ew.”

Uhh… Duh? It never promised to be anything other than that? Are you stupid? Or do you just not care about context?
