don't rate games based on how much fun I had but rather on the basis of several factors. Things like how influential a game is, how original it is in both a ludic and narratological sense, how well designed are the game's systems, how strongly did the game make me feel, and what was my overall enjoyment of the title.

This is not an exhaustive list of criteria, just a sort of general overview of some of the ways I think about titles.

My scores are indicative of how much I think a game deserves someone's time and attention. A 10/10 would be something I think everyone should play, while a 1/10 would be something I think everyone should avoid. Consider anything above a 5 a positive recommendation with varying degrees of intensity and everything below 5 a negative one. I try to appreciate the good in things so you'll see more relatively high scores than low ones however, and its also worth mentioning that I do believe in negative role models. I'll give decent scores to things that are bad in an interesting way, because it can serve as a good example of how to do the wrong thing - which I believe is worth our time to examine.

I can't promise you'll agree with my scores, but I can promise I can justify them. If you have any questions or criticisms about why something is rated the way it is please write on my profile and I'd be happy to discuss. If you can convince me of the error in my judgement I'd be happy to change a score.
