Title: Mainstream Appeal Posted: December 08, 2008 (04:44 PM)
Metacriticking just now, I stumble across one of those horrendous websites that scores 'individual aspects' of a game, such as 'graphics, sound, longevity' etc, assuming those facets to be relevant to the overall experience.
Which, y'know, I'm kind of used to. A great deal do it. IGN do. Gamespot used to, 'til recently.
Anyway, Jolt Gaming decides "Mainstream Appeal" should be one of those rated aspects of the game.

Wow. That's real smart, especially considering a lot of obscure games really are great.
