    It really doesn't. Sure it's 1 point from weak because it got a 7/10. if it got an 8/10 it would've been 5 points from Mighty. So what?

    Consider if they had 14 steps for each rank, more evenly spaced out:
    100 = Perfect (41 reviews)
    99 - 85 = mighty (22 reviews)
    84 - 70 = strong (1 review, gbatemp)
    69 - 55 = fair
    54 - 40 = weak
    39 - 25 = bad
    24 - 10 = awful
    10 - 00 = broken

    See, now the gbatemp review says the game still is a strong one.

    Now, I love the game. I don't agree with the 7/10 score, but it is not my review! Honestly, I don't agree with those 41 Perfect 10 scores either. The game HAS slowdowns, I've not noticed a lot of them, but when they do happen it's only for a short while. The weapon breaking is not balanced enough. If a rusty sword or a twig breaks from a couple of blows, sure... but when I can kill 1½ regular enemy with a shining soldier's sword? That's a bit too weak.
    It doesn't take away any of the fun I have with it though, so for me it's really a 9.5. I probably have some nostalgia glasses and a fanboy hat on at the same time too.

    At the end of the day: 7/10 is not a bad score.

    The meaning of clickbait should be obvious if you just look at the two words in it. "Bait" and "Click". Has nothing to do with making one upset. Guy's trolling his ass off.

    Don't worry I'm only pretending to be retarded. Haha, isn't that funny. Woooooooooo eeeeeeeeeeeee I sure do love irony. By detatching myself from serious engagement in any situation that makes me the calmer and therefore smartest in any argument.
    (This is double/triple/Poe's Law irony btw)

    You're so mean sometimes, Chary.

    Back in my day we just called it trolling. Dammit.

    I thought this thread was gonna be about the crap titles people have been giving their forum topics, not the BotW review. All the same, people are now gonna know this site as the GameSpot of the BotW era.

    I will admit, I don't think BOTW deserves only a 7 out of 10. ESPECIALLY when most other games were rated with 8s or higher.

    I mean, seriously. Does the Virtual Boy deserve a better score than BOTW?

    Can my next review be click bait? Mario kart 8 deluxe, 0/10 cause is a cheap cash in on a port which brought exclusive content that should have been in the original game. :creep:

    On a serious side, maybe i will do all my reviews with a perfect 0 score. If people care about score so much instead of ACTUAL CONTEXT THAT HOLDS THE IMPORTANT INFORMATION. :teach:

    "Why does all his reviews have 0 score? He clearly seem to like this game a lot, based on the description he gave so conflicting." Is that clickbait you want? :P
