Is it possible to request for a review to be taken down? Of the thousands on this site, I would pick this one. This other "Johnny" doesn't even bother to give the game a rating. Complete failure.

Reviews written before the switch to a dynamic site design, and sometimes those just after the switch, didn't have dates and scores attached (even though they often were awarded scores when originally posted). Though they were written a long time ago, often they're still quite good. Up to that point, I remember this review being one of my favorites that was available on the site, written by someone I used to chat with in Yahoo! Chat.

I have no plans whatsoever to remove scores from reviews, or to provide an option to review games without a score. The score is one of the most essential parts of any review. Particularly on a site that hosts multiple reviews, it's critical that users rate the games they are reviewing... and that they do so accurately!

If you read through some of those older reviews and find that a score is named within the text (but that it doesn't actually show up within the database), please let me know so that I can update that review accordingly. The fewer unrated reviews we have, the better. I'm just not interested in removing the site's oldest of reviews for the lack of that score. Thankfully, they make up a minority of the on-site content.

What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

There shouldn't be many. I went through the unscored reviews a year or so back and added scores to the vast majority of them. It's now just a case of finding the few I missed.


For us. For them. For you.

Scores are overrated.

Some people even use the Score to decide what to eat for dinner.


Not sure how to make a sig? While logged into your account, you can edit it and your other public and private information from the Settings page.

The score is one of the most essential parts of any review.

For me, it comes in just behind the intro, body and conclusion. But slightly above the mass amounts of filler jokes I make about my abuse of alcohol and drugs.....at least most of the time.
