Greetings, internet connoisseurs!
As you may well be aware, things change on the internet. It's an evolving platform that is always looking to improve itself and we at MMGN feel the same way.
Today I'm here to tell you that we're getting with the times and updating our review scoring system with a 20 point scale.
I'm glad you asked!
From the beginning of 2012, we have moved to a 20 point scale when we award a game a score out of 10 at the end of a review.
It replaces the old 100 point scale, which we used until the end of 2011.
This means that games will receive a score between 0 - 10 increasing in increments of .5 instead of .1.
There will be no more scores like 8.7/10. It will now be either 8.5 or 9.0.
We've also made some slight changes to what each score means. Click here for more information!
We've also changed the content in our scoring box. Our reviews still conclude with The Final Verdict, summarising the review, but now only include an overall score.
We have removed the individual scores for graphics, gameplay, sound and value as this information is included in the review and does not need to be summarised with a number outside of the overall score.
Is Every Score Being Changed?
No. The new system only applies to games reviewed from 2012 onwards. Previous review scores remain unchanged.
Likewise, old indie reviews will retain their score out of 5 stars. Movie reviews will continue to use the 5 star system.
