When I score a game in a review, I give it a number because it’s the ‘norm’. But that number means different things to different people. As such, here is the Rating Scale I use and how I apply it.
If you would like to know more as to how I apply scores, a more detailed explanation can be found here.
|Major Score||General Category||Description|
|1||Truly Awful||Not even for your worst enemy. Don't play these games.|
|2||Very Bad||So much is wrong with this. I will talk about it if you want, but I won't play again.|
|3||Bad||Yeah no. There was something that made me want to play, but never again.|
|4||Not Great||It's just missing that 'something'. I will teach you if you want me to, but I won't play again.|
|5||Average||These are games. They pass the time. They do nothing to stand out.|
|6||OK||A bit of fun. If someone really needs another player or wants to learn, I am in.|
|7||Good||Games that I have a lot of fun playing, and can reccomend everyone should try if they get the chance.|
|8||Great||I will play these a lot. I think a variety of people should give it a try.|
|9||Excellent||These games I will play at every opportunity, and think everyone should play at least once.|
|10||Masterpiece||Similar to 8's and 9's, but ones I think will still have that impact 10 years from now.|
