People like you are the reasons why the review scale is stupidly broken like it is.Just like a middle school will say a C is an average grade. It's not. Its below average. But this makes below average kids, feel better about themselves.
I see basically all game reviews. A 70 is not a good game. I don’t care what they list it as. Look at the actual games that get those scores. They might not be terrible, but they are usually pretty far from good.
1-7/10 = GARBAGE! UTTER BROKEN TRASH!!!!
8-8.9/10 = averge, will maybe buy second hand when it's in the bargain bin. If it's an exclusive it's garbage if it couldn't even get a 9/10!
9+/10 = Good game! Only acceptable score for an exclusive game.
The way it *should* be is:
1 - terrible
3 - bad
5 - average
7 - very good
8/9 - amazing
10 - best in class
I've enjoyed many games that I'd give a 5/10. Hell even some that deserve a 3-4/10, like Killzone 1 on PS2 for example. Because of people like you though, the default score for a game that boots and doesn't set your console on fire automatically is about a 7/10.
