OPs entire point for the thread:
“Someone liked a good game.”
How brave.
no he is just saying how the hell did it get a 9.3 im sorry but like it needs a 80 for it being so watered down

It’s a subjective opinion. Some liked it more than the average. Some liked it less. It’s not that big of an outlier. It’s stupid to whine about. Again...
“Someone really liked a good game.”
So brave.

Spotify can have their services go down, lose access licenses, and is reliant upon your connection to their service. If you notice no difference in quality its likely due to your audio device not being good enough or you not being that deep into audio quality as a listener, which means that's a difference that wouldn't matter to your purchase anyway, but doesn't serve for others who are more concerned. Spotify is a convenient tool for people who want to pay for their music and find songs with little effort, but it is not superior to physical or digital download. Or piracy, for that matter.

Legally one can buy FLAC and pay the same 10 a month for 5TB of cloud storage and tell VLC or Plex to pull the files to their computer or Android device (I don't know about apple device, but I assume they have something too). For a pirate they could do the same, but without buying the FLACs. Or the storage, some pirates just share Plex servers full of FLACs, even less effort than Spotify for even more music access. For people with poorer internet connections you just need a good SD or external drive to store your goods. Any of the options, legal or not, in this paragraph gives you better quality music tailored to your tastes with no concern over Spotify ever having liscencing issues, which it may wind up with considering how some labels are wanting bigger cuts of money with concert sales flagging.

Spotify is good if you are cheap enough to not want better goods and storage, but not so cheap that you will throw away 10 bucks a month. If your morals on purchasing things extends enough to cover a 10 dollar sub, but not enough to buy the physical media that isn't sold at a near loss. If you're lazy enough to want a low effort music source, but not lazy enough to use a pirate's plex server because despite being even easier, pirates are too icky.
I offer contracts. You get a wish. And other stuff! Apply now!

It’s not homework. It’s not based on some purely objective scale of excellence. It’s just about whether someone liked or didn’t like a game. Some other reviewers have it a 6.5. That’s cool. I disagree, but it’s their opinion. Average was like an 8.2. 9.3 isn’t insane compared to the median. It’s a good game. Depending on your preferences and expectations, 9.3 makes sense.
This just reminds me of a phrase I saw once.

Galar is literally surrounded by water (unless you can't go coast to coast).

Sound like something you want to be true, does it?

Seeing these comments make me glad that I talked to that kid on the bus on my way from school last week. I told him I loved S/M, and he didn't even question me. And even he knows how obnoxious this fanbase has gotten ever since June.
My favorite fire starters are Charizard and Incineroar
