Reviewing/rating games

So, I was thinking how games/anime/movies are receiving inappropriate rating, because of the average fanboy or retards that have no fucking clue by the slightest how to rate a game. Most people usually just guess the score and don’t look at all aspects how to rate a fucking game based off all its factors.

Before proceeding I’d like to note with my rating system it’s nearly impossible to get a 9.5 or a 10, it’s an unrealistic number, hi IGN. If a game manages to reach a perfect score it means the game is flawless in every aspect which is not realistic. Further I’d like to note before moving on 5 and 6 are not bad ratings. 6 means its good and worth your time and 5 means average, most people are confusing themselves with 5 and 6 being bad ratings, however 4 means is bad/mediocre and waste of my time.

Below is the general idea as far as ratings go.

Breakdown
10 – Godly
9 – EPIC
8 – Amazing
7 – Great
6 – Good/Solid
5 – Average/Decent/Fine
4 – Mediocre
3 – Bad
2 – Shit/Terrible
1 – Deplorable

Moving on, when we rate a game we have to break the rating system down to 5 factors and each factor has a certain scale how much impact the rating on that has, and this is how I rate a game based on these five factors.

30 for Story
30 for Gameplay
20 for Characters
10 for Sounds
10 for Graphics
100 possible points.

I used the basic 5 categories to review a game based off all these 5 points its score is determined. I’ll do an example below.

Take the game FFXIV for example these are the following critic rating. I’m not gonna give an explaination why I gave these ratings, this is a mere demostration to give you the basic idea how it works.

Story 3 (out of 10) x 0.3 = 0.9
Gameplay 5 (out of 10) x 0.3 = 1.5
Characters 3 (out of 10) x 0.2 = 0.6
Sounds 5 (out of 10) x 0.1 = 0.5
Graphics 10 (out of 10) x 0.1 = 1

0.9 + 1.5 + 0.6 + 0.5 + 1 = 4.5 Bad/Mediocre

Here’s an example of a good game, Skyrim.

Story 8.8 (out of 10) x 0.3 = 2.64
Gameplay 9.5 (out of 10) x 0.3 = 2.85
Characters 8.5 (out of 10) x 0.3 = 1.7
Sounds 9 (out of 10) x 0.1 = 0.9
Graphics 9.5 (out of 10) x 0.1 = 0.95

2.64 + 2.85 + 1.7 + 0.9 + 0.95 = 9.04 Epic
