This debate re-ignited at GamerDad as well recently. Andrew Bub decided that since his main thrust was content rather than critical reviews, that all platforms of a multiplatform review were covered at once by a single review - including next gen and handheld (ex. something like Tiger Woods Golf). That caused GameRanking to 'unbold' GamerDad, which was a major force in keeping scoring … I pushed the issue, but was rebuked … for now

I think fewer levels are better - I'd be happy with a Up / Down / Meh type of thing … even a strict Up / Down if pressed.

For me the problem is that I'm an engineer / statistician by training and trade … so I can't help but believe that the difference between a game rated 8.5 and one rated 8.0 is greater than that same 8.5 game and one rated 8.75. I believe that numbers should have *meaning* or not be used at all.

Of course, the majority of professional reviewers are non-science types, so …
