I have long pondered the role of review scores, do people like them? If so, do they like scores out of 5 or 10, maybe a rating out of 100? What about An A-F scale, or perhaps something a bit more off the wall like ours?. Or finally, do people not bother with the actual rating and make do with the words of the review? Hit the jump for a poll and more words.
There is a nice little poll right below, feel free to vote and then leave a comment.
After reading Patrick’s piece I started to think about the nature of review scores and how others see them. I personally understand why readers want to see a definitive rating at the end of a review, but I am not entirely keen on using the traditional systems here on The Reticule. Then you have sites like Rock, Paper, Shotgun which don’t use any rating at the all in their ‘What I Think’ pieces. So feel free to vote and share your thoughts on how you like your reviews.
