I haven’t posted anything for awhile (if you don’t count the post from five minutes ago, which I actually wrote months ago). But I have new motivation in the blog, and that’s to add a review section.
The goal: To provide short reviews, that are (hopefully) not biased by any previously published scores or impressions.
The score system will be borrowed from what I consider the best video game magazine that was ever published, Next Generation. It is a simple 5 star system, but because of the simplicity the entire scale will be used. This is in contrast to a 1-10 scale, where most games place between 7-9, with anything below not being worth playing, and anything above being considered great (really what is the difference between 8.5 and 9, or even 8 and 9 for that matter?). At that level, the real question is it a 4 star (God of War 3), or a 5 star game (Demon Souls)?
