Spalding's Self-depricating humor + review COMBO

Hi guys...I'm going to review video games...hahaha...maybe this will impress the ladies...or at least you wee laddies...

DAWN OF THE FIRST REVIEW

Snatcher - For Sega CD, or "Mega CD" for you people who hate America

Genre - Graphic Adventure

Good story. Nice graphics. Cool cutscenes. Nice Atmosphere, got this Blade Runner thing goin' down. Full voice acting, rare for this system. Slightly Repetive gameplay. For those that like graphic adventures. Made by Hideo Kojima. You love Hideo. Recommended, 6/10. (5 is average, dicks.)

According to (you know) math, 7 definitely is not average.

Maybe on an English test, but not when reviewing.

crap Spaldin you are doing a lot in your first day, but seriously, is this a joke thread. Your review made more comments on Hideo Kojima than one statement about the game itself. Plus, wtf is the game about!?!?!

*EDIT* Oh, nevermind, you stated this is a humor thread so it is not serious, so continue...

sorry for the inconvenience

uhh not really Snatcher really is a good game, just a crappy review. try and get an ISO of it. (I would say "buy it" but it would be used and Hideo ain't makin money off it anymore)

5/10 is definately not an average score for a video game. if a game gets a score of 5 out of 10, it is below average.

Id say 5 out of 10 is average. Not Good, Not Bad.

Any higher of a mark and more than half of your scale would be below average. That gives you very little wiggle room to determine good games, from great games, to perfect games.

that doesnt make any sense. a game that gets a 5/10 is not worth your time and is below average. take neo contra, for example. that game is definately average, and is about a 6.5/7 out of 10. 5 out of 10 is a pretty bad score for a video game.

some of the games we anticipate receive a score of 6.5 or 7 or maybe 7.5 out of 10... which is somewhat disappointing. if you anticipated, say, kingdon hearts II, and it received a score of 5/10, wouldn't you be upset and agree that it really does suck and it's definately not an average score?

most games receive an average of 6.5/7... that is average, my friends. the good to great games receive 7.5 and up. the average game does not get a score of 5/10. thank you and good night.

If he says 5 is average, then it is average on his scale. He is not using the same exact scale as others. He could score from 3 to C if he wanted, with BLUE being average. It's his scale, and he sets the rule as to what is average on it.

You're right joe, which is why in the first place someone shouldn't have went on my thread in the first place telling me what's an average score or not.
