    not sure if people really have been voting
    or the voting is just screwed
    if people are really voting like this, its kinda ridiculous dont you think?
    a doggie game at 90% with 2000 votes?
    and phantasy star has a 16%? cuz of its piracy protection?

    i dont know whats going on,
    but if people are randomly voting for the heck of screwing up the sysetm
    thats not very nice
    and if its glitched, it should get fixed soon :/

    The problem is that there are no limits for how many times a single person can vote for a game.

    Let's say that I think a certain game suck, I could then give it the lowest score a couple of hundred times and its ranking will fall rapidly.

    We could just get rid of the comments section. Nobody posts in the actual game release place to post a comment anyways :wtf:

    It won't be useful for anything unless it's fixed but seeing as I've already tried to tell them about this problem a couple of times already it seems like it isn't prioritized at all.

    Just use the average scores of all the gaming websites (ign,gamefaqs etc.) and come to a final score which cant be changed. [​IMG]

    Proof that the voting system doesn't work as it should:
    I voted 10/10 for Phantasy Star Zero a hundred times and bumped it from 16% to 45% in just a matter of seconds.
