I dunno, if you find a movie on direct to video that bricks your DVD player, induces massive motion sickness on the audience, is an empty soundstage with a red filter on the lens for 3 hours, made entirely of stock footage, or literally an unresponsive DVD menu. I'd imagine you rate that lower then 73 minutes of Steven Seagal being a cardboard cutout or people being doused in corn syrup.Phoenixmgs said:And, again, no other medium rates its art like that either. Movies released to theaters aren't automatic say 2-star movies because of Steven Seagal direct-to-video garbage or those knockoff Asylum movies (Transmorphers, Snakes on a Train, etc.).Seth Carter said:7/10 average is for "proper" games though. Some of its marketing concerns, but the trend also starts to correlate with the rise in Internet and Digital Distribution. Which created tonnes of shovelware, buggy garbage, rejected high school programming class assignments, and literally games that have a 5% chance to start up or get out of the menu screen to fill in 0-5 with.
Games have a lot more room for varying grades of absolute s***, which accounts for the allotment of more then a point/half star,
