What Review Score Should We Give Metacritic?

How does Metacritic work? How do they decide what video game magazines and websites make their list? A Metacritic listing should be a statement of legitimacy for a video game review outlet, but is that always true? Dennis Scimeca investigates. (Culture, Industry, Metacritic)

Forgetting the abysmal fanboy user score section which should be removed the problem with metacritic is that some review scores a more weighted than others and it is not averaged. The fact is we as user cannot rate reviews over a period of time which should show as a community which review area actually descent (some are really poor). The creates its own problems of first party games being trolled. I am not really sure why metacritic holds so much wait in the industry. The method of averaging is flawed without any of the reviews being criticised (internal and/or externally) themselves which the are not
