and by the way Assassin's Creed is an excellent game. ignore the ratings and play the game whenever u get the chance.


Gamescores. Do games really need them?
November 21, 2007

Assassin's Creed gets a 7/10 on IGN.com and a 9/10 on Gamespot!!!!!!??????????? whats going on here?clearly something is wrong.who am i to trust?so i think to myself maybe it's time game sites and magazines stopped awarding gamescores. reviews are just opinions so why cant we keep them just that. why do we have to assign numbers to opinions?
Game sites and magazines should ONLY write about what they found good and bad about the game and let the reader decide whether the game is worth buying or not WITHOUT gamescores.and how am i to differentiate between 2 games where one gets an 8.9 and the other gets a 9.0? what did one of the games do to get a score that is only 0.1 higher than the other. will that 0.1 difference affect my buying decision if it affects it at all?

Increasing in popularity with each passing day videogames, one could conclude, are becoming the entertainment choice of this, and upcoming, generations.


This is exactly the reason more and more researchers are studying how games affect our brains, behavior, and social relations. There seem to only have been two kinds of researches. On the one hand there are those that tell us games are bad for us (which most of you, I am sure, are familiar with).
