I wish to explain how I write my reviews and why.

I usually start by giving a quick glimpse foreshadowing my thoughts on the game.

Then in the second part I explain the premise in general terms trying to avoid spoilers.

In  the third segment I describe things about the game that stood out for  me, whether negative or positive. Well most of the time the negative  things are more notable.

If you see me going off on tangents talking about my own background  and how the game relates to me. That is not my attempt at exhibitionism.  and no reason for you to zone out.

You see, in order for you to  understand why I like some aspects of a game, you need to know my  acquired tastes and biases. Otherwise when I say I liked this or that it  will be meaningless to you. As there is no guarantee that my likes and  dislikes are overlapping with yours. But if you know my biases you can  get much more relevant information about the game even if you vehemently  disagree with my assessment.

After the essay part I'll give a  short summary of the positives and negatives of the product as bullet  points. Occasionally adding short descriptions to the list. As I might  not have touched on everything in the essay part that I list here.

Then  the final part is the scoring the game based on some metrics. I know  some people like to just read the score at the end of reviews without  even scan reading the article, I can't do anything about that. But  please at least make sure you interpret the score properly. I'm sick and  tired of people thinking a 6/10 review means the game is absolute  untouchable garbage.

Here is how the overall score I give should be interpreted:

  1. Absolute shit, avoid at all cost
  2. Really bad game, no redeeming value at all
  3. Bad game, that some still might find interesting if they are into the genre
  4. Worse than average, has some serious flaws, but still might be fun for some
  5. Completely average game, it does what it advertises and nothing more
  6. Better than average, good quality game, which shines on a few points
  7. Good game, that should not be missed if you like the genre
  8. Very good game, that's a must have
  9. Great game, that is truly awesome
  10. Ground breaking, genre re-defining, mind blowing

That's all folks!
