He was far too generous with his BOTW and MK8D scores. Both were sub par sub 5 games at best.

yet he gave MK8D 9/10 despite that being the same as every other mario kart at it's core

how the hell is that fair? you can't just say "yeah this game loses points for just being the same game with a couple new things added" when previously you had praised a game that was just more of the same with a few new things added


The standards for a port and sequel are different.


what was he expecting? for the game to drastically change in the sequel

you are not gonna see a shooter or fighting game overhaul itself to the point where it's not even the same game anymore

Yeah, which is why he gave it a 7, which means it's good.

7 (Good): A 7 represents a favorable slice of entertainment that ought to prove welcome in the right house. Not the most glamorous, polished, or jawdropping, but most definitely good for a chuckle or two.

yeah no, a 7 is awful bad but still has few ppl that could enjoy it, 8 is good, 9 is great, and 10 is flawless. at least by Asia standards, not just my country.

After seeing that link, I took a peak over there and decided to see what Jim's numbers mean... And I actually like his scale the best.

He makes some valid points as to why he uses the scale he uses and how modern rating standards have culled us into thinking a game isn't worth it unless it's at LEAST an 8... Which is fairly stupid

He also makes it a point to have 5 as the "neutral" score, which is where it should be, given that it's the middle number (or fights for middle number spot, technically)
"No internet required!"

No one thinks of a 7 being good these days. I blame the school system.
I woke up like dih!

Yeah, his scale is pretty much the one I use.
There's a mystery to be uncovered here, that's for sure. And I get the feeling the truth is beyond my wildest imagination.
