Game Rankings!!

On this page I list all the games I have reviewed by ascending order of rating.

One purpose of this is to help me re-assess and re-evaluate whether I have assigned the right rating for a game. But I also pray that this entry will prove helpful to others as a means of comparing the quality of different games.

I try to be as objective as possible - I even rate my favourite games lower than my own personal view if I think that other people won't like it (see Concept, for example, which is one of my favourite games).

The gaps in this list are deliberate as they represent different 'tiers' or 'levels' of games. I re-assess the scores of games quite often, as the need arises!!

Average Score: 478.74/66 reviews = 7.253, which is an extremely high average. This value suggests that I am either being too generous or I haven't reviewed enough below-average games. If the figure is correct, and in the context of my Ratings System, it also suggests that I think that a lot of games are good, but not great.

*I have not included the GeoPuzzle Series in the average as it isn't really what I would call a game per se - it's a puzzle


More to come...
