    Well today a bunch of Zelda BotW reviews went online and to my surprise (or not), it's getting perfect scores everywhere. To name a few, IGN, polygon, Nintendolife, heck, even Gamespot who is known to trash Nintendo games gave it a perfect 10/10 rating. Well done Nintendo, well done.

    I have a feeling that nintendo is paying youtubers and/or reviewers to give good reviews. Like, has anyone counted all the youtubers and reviewers who got switch and botw for free? And all those reviews with miamoto? Didnt happen so widely in the last few zeldas...

    Well at least you always expect someone to troll a new Nintendo game with a bad rating

    No idea why it get 10/10. Horizon is 9.8/10 but not Zelda. Zelda is maybe 8/10: Go make Riddle, Go Make Riddle, Go Make Riddle. Oh wait: Go make Riddle xD that is the new Zelda.

    I mean it is fun, don't get me wrong. But after doing the first 2 Areas. (I accidentally got in highest Area and killed some Mecha Guys, because AI is just dumb in the Game)

    It is just doing the Temples to get Points. And the Temples all are just Riddles with some Mobs.

    Well then do 85 % :D So it is a B+? But is is not a 100% by far not. No game should ever get 10/10 (to be honest, would mean there is no better Game coming)

    I Guess the Rating is: 85/90% + It is Zelda 15/10% Bonus.

    Are you really shocked? Did you really think it wasn't going to be a circlejerk with reviewers?

    Skyward sword got a 10/10 (from ign). That game is shit house. Wait until the hype storm passes and then you will get a true assessment of the game.

    When I get a review for this site I review them "harshly". I give average games 5/10 instead of 7/10 like most review sites.

    I take reviews with a side of bullshit. Either they are biased because fanboy-ism, the site is looking for more clicks, or the game hasn't been out long enough to fully rate the game. I'm sorry critics you can't take games for face value.

    a good scoring system is one in which the average is 5/10. if 8/10 is bad, then the scoring system is fucked up

    Agreed. That is what we are stuck with, at least in the US.

    Some schools try and move to a different scale, everyone throws a fit and they end up having to make a conversion table rendering the new scale meaningless.

    there SHOULD be games that have a perfect score of 10/10, that doesnt mean no other game is better but that it was executed perfectly in every aspect it needed to. think of school/college exams- 100 is the perfect score (at least in my place), but the fact that someone gets 100 doesnt mean nobody else is smarter then him in said field. that only means he answered every single question in the exam correctly.

    Meanwhile in Denmark, you can have grades between -3 and 12.
    And you cannot get -2, -1, 1, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9 nor 11. Only -3, 0, 2, 4, 7, 10 and 12.
