I think the review system should do a half star system. I am saying this because really, Resistance 2 is better than COD WAW. So in that case, Resistance 2 could have got 4.5 stars instead of 4.

I personally believe the whole 5 star system is flawed because it allows far less room then say a 10 star system would.

I think up is better because it's the opposite of down.
#5 Posted by Rowr (5539 posts) -

I think the review system should do quarter star systems because its more accurate than half and full star systems.

#6 Posted by Lunarbunny (1025 posts) -

How about 1000 stars with 1/100th star granularity? You can never be too precise...

#7 Posted by Rowr (5539 posts) -

so like one star, with a 100 units to fill?

i like it.

DUDES how can I tell which game I like better if they dont tell me ArRGHH!!!!!

Jinkies I lost my glasses and I cant read the review

I would be more fond of a 100 full-star rating system. That way I could meticulously arrange my game collection based on score, and help me cope with my O.C.D. in the process!

#11 Posted by Johnny5 (1355 posts) -

dude thats an awesome idea

seriously tiny increments are accurate for 100% of the readers so why are we downgrading HUH!?!

more increments = bettterrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

To supplement the 1/100th star system, of course we'd need some sort of magnification so you can see the difference between, say, 97, 98, or 99/100ths.

ok we are making alot of progress here, i think we nearly have it perfected...

Only 800 stars? Really? That's bullshit. Resistance 2 is worth at least 843 stars.

So you're saying our stars are female?

Ok, that was too easy.

I am deeply offended by the sexualization of the stars used in this 1/100th star system. God forbid some youngster comes in here and sees star vagina.

Im more worried by the lack of corresponding male star genetalia!! the species will die out and then there will be no stars for anyone!

This thread is full of win and stars....female stars....oh god rule 34 is going to ruin everyones view on the ratings system now....

Regardless of the gender of any specific star, some morality should be shown. I say that the stars naughty parts should be censored, in case an individual like myself should come across this. Here is an example of my idea:

#26 Posted by Gunner612 (4338 posts) -

The whole point of the star system is to get the person to actually read the review, you know, so people WONT go "OMFG ONLY A 9.5 IT SHOULDA GOT A 10!!".

#27 Posted by kitsune_conundrum (1202 posts) -

being the guy that i am, ive skipped everything everyone has posted and put up my own idea. Keep the whole stars but give the review badges or emblems that signify the ups and downs.

#28 Posted by OmegaPirate (5523 posts) -

Maybe we could do it like the dirty porn mags do whislt on the shelves of shops, and just put a small black star over everything naked on the cover as not to offend young eyes??

like so?

And be compared to smut? I think not good sir! Perhaps you can sit by and watch this wonderful system be "pimped out" for site traffic, but I will not stand for it! The 1/100th star system must keep it's integrity!

This whole situation is spiralling seriously out of control, i think we need some staff or mod input to reolve this whole thing

#32 Posted by OmegaPirate (5523 posts) -

What would you say is the best way of censoring out the maybe offensive star genitalia? - they are a neccessity for sure but theres a chance that the obstruction method itself may relate it to some less than flattering sources - it was the keen eyed staff that spotted the gender differances between the two - however we are having diffculty ind eciding how to deal with it!!

I totally say leave the stars naked, nudity can be awesome...and i only think Mario would be turned on by them. But if i HAD to choose, definately the one saying "Censor" over the offending parts. Its just a little more clever in my opinion....sorry man.

#35 Posted by Rowr (5539 posts) -

i dunno the other one turns me on, i can still see a little something.

Man this took way too long. Do you know how hard it is to do pleats with pixel art? Also like 3 levels of shadows and 2 levels of highlighting!

Now there's something new that's never been done before. I'm going to go pitch this idea to Jeff right now. It's going to blow his damn mind.
#39 Posted by TEAMHOLT (437 posts) -

I actually think they could ditch the two-star rating and make it a four-star system. Suck on that idea.

Gentlemen, Click the "help" link in the upper right.

Read it.

#41 Posted by Giantkitty (808 posts) -

I think certain games should also have starfish ratings too, and instead of a slit for percentage taken off, there should a hole in the center - the bigger the hole, the more percentage points taken off. The only problem is finding the area.

R = (S -C)/S  (R = rating ratio of star, S = Area of star (let's make it a regular 5 pointed star), C= Area of circle [S>=C])

R = (pi)r^2 (r = radius of circle)

S= a^2/(4 tan (A/2), a=length of the base of the "outer triangle" A="outer angle" of said triangle

so R = [(a^2/(4 tan A/2)) - (pi)r^2] / (a^2/(4 tan A/2))

How on earth did this thread turned into a topic for star genders?

Nah, you guys are all wrong. We need the buffalo out of 27 rating system.

Classy. lol.
#48 Posted by Under_Influenz (161 posts) -

that will defeat the purpose. The rating is not meant to be used to compare games, its a gauge as to how fun the game is.

THEY WANT YOU TO ACTUALLY READ THE DAMN REVIEWS! 5 star system brings doesn't answer all your questions, you should be reading the review. It's a generality.

The staff doesn't want to be like other sites, with users who read the points, and base that the game is good or bad off of that. They're writing is useless if everyone just reads how much it got. Even if a game is 3/5 stars, you don't know how good and how bad it is, so you read the review.
