I only score games I’ve played through or otherwise a significant amount of time.
My scores are of course not objective, they’re more like my gut feeling.
I put a lot of weight on the overall atmosphere and the story, but everything counts. I try to take the game genre into account, and I give slight leeway to freeware and low budget games.
This is pretty much what the different scores mean:
10 ~ This game is perfect. Even if there was something to nitpick about, people shouldn’t bother.
9.0 – 9.5 ~ Awesome, just awesome.
8.0 – 8.5 ~ A great game.
7.0 – 7.5 ~ This is a good game. There are a lot of positive qualities in it.
6.0 – 6.5 ~ A decent game. It has some qualities that make it interesting and/or better than average.
5.0 – 5.5 ~ Meh. Average, or probably below it.
4.0 – 4.5 ~ Kinda bad.
0.5 – 3.5 ~ Terribad.
Because of the first criteria up there, it’s quite unlikely I’d ever review games that are actually bad in my opinion. I just can’t bother to stick with them.
This should not be interpreted as unfinished games all being bad. I have many reasons to have breaks on games.
