Last week we did heavy-hitting sales figures. This week we're having a bit of fun with review scores.
While many people felt that 2007 was quite possibly the best year ever for videogames as far as game quality, a feature we ran last winter showed that overall review scores were quite low historically speaking. What we didn't do at the time is look more closely at the correlation between review scores and the time of year.
Is there a "best month of the year" for games? Are there months when publishers dump crap games on the market? Is there a month with the highest review scores ever? Is there a month with the worst review scores ever? Did we go hopelessly nuts collating the data, crunching the numbers, and making an absolutely stunning visual aid that reveals all?"
