The 5 Best-Reviewed Games You Might Not Have Heard Of

Ben Richardson writes:Assigning scores to video game reviews is always a contentious business. GameFront columnist Jim Sterling tackled this issue in the latest installment of /RANT, pushing back against the idea that Gears of War 3 “deserved” a 9 or 10 out of 10 score that it may or may not have earned.

There’s no doubt that reviewers have a creeping tendency to inflate the scores of influential, hotly anticipated games. It is also obvious that they tend to overuse the high end of the scale — giving a game a 6 these days is like signing a death warrant. (Freedom Force, Galactic Civilizations II, No One Lives Forever, Out of the Park Baseball 2007, PC, The Longest Journey)
