I believe I adressed this point with the next thing you quoted, which was my entire premise. Baserate overrides individual opinions. Like with gamescores; you may certainly reject a game with 95% average score, but that tend to reveal more about you than the game. Chances are greater that a friend of yours enjoy that game, than the 60% you loved.

Acknowledging this might be tough, but to do otherwise is called baserate neglect, a habit not beneficial in the long run.

Congratulations of being special. Care to list those games?
