Here’s the thing about rating websites. They use a rating system of x out of 5, x out of 10, xx% out of a hundred, and so on, but they’re all really just saying the same thing- how good of a try the developers gave it.
At Gamesmelter we’re pretty tired of that system. The way we look at it, most of the time no one is going to play a game with a review in the 3’s or the 6’s or the 60’s… so why even give it a score? Why do we care if it isn’t worth the player’s time? Instead, we opted for the system below:
– a game we wouldn’t recommend
– a good game
– a great game
– a fantastic game
– a masterpiece
Using this system the reader is able to quickly cut out the chaff and just get to that sweet, sweet gaming wheat- and we think that’s what a review website should be about.
