Spam Spam Spam Humbug: Episode 60 – Game Review Systems
Why do we still rate video games using arbitrary “star” or 1-100 rating systems? Is there a better way to assess the value, worth, or quality of a game? What if we rated games based on cost per hour of enjoyment; if you can get (let’s say) a dollar per hour of enjoyment out of a game, the game is good. Games like Skyrim or Fallout 4 — where some of us put in hundreds of hours — would have an amazing rating for cost of enjoyment per hour.
