    Well, you can throw some pink paint, sprinkles and put a ribbon on a turd, but in the end it still stays a turd.

    7.8 out of ten?

    Fuck that noise.

    5 tops.

    How low have we fallen?

    8 out of ten is Fallout/Homeworld level writing.

    10 out of ten is more like...I dunno...H.G Wells?

    Is that 7.8 with or without inflation?

    Besids, I am pretty sure a lot of people give Fallout 4 some 9 of 10 as well.

    According to "story score" inflation of 3% per year since 1990's, that would mean in 1990's 'Story score' it gets a...

    4-5...huh....

    The only game I've ever played that is a straight up 10/10 overall is Tetris.
    Story wise... I guess Fallout 1 deserves a 10 (or a 9 at the very least).

    You give Fallout an 8 out of 10?

    That's terrible.

    8 out of 10 means a good but not great game. Which I and a bunch of other folk believe to be the case. A Silver Medal. Not a Gold Medal.

    10 out of 10 for Fallout 1.

    :)

    Numerical scores are idiotic and trying to argue about which subjective nunber is more objective is doubly idiotic.
     
  12. Yeah, let's keep that on its own thread. Or the Discord server's Gladiatorial Arena room! :lalala:

    Anyhow, plain, lone numerical ratings are stupid for the most part. Like, "Least Favourite" :lmao:

    10 is PERFECT.

    Fallout is a lovely game, easily one of my favourite, but it has FLAWS.

    Flaws which might not be TERRIBLE, but they exist.

    Ergo, not a 10 out of 10.

    Eh, I feel perfect is too high a bar to set.

    But I've stated many times that I view 8 as a 4 out of 5 and high praise but with severe issues.

    As they say, different strokes for different folks.

    Re: ME Andromeda

    I notice a noticeable graphical jump with the patch and things are no longer horrifying but I do think it's a bare minimum kind of band aid.

    Any company which dares to release garbage day 1, is not a company I want to fund.

    Gearbox did the same, and they were added to my shitlist of devs to not pay money to.

    EA is already on that list, so Mass Defect wasn't even on my 'consideration to purchase' list.

    All video game companies suck but I appreciate the work of their employees.

    Yes, which is why good games should be evaluated on their own merits.

    CT did you play with the recent patch they just released (1.05)? Some pretty big changes in there that I was pretty pleased with. Big changes to animations and space travel - Bioware surprised me.
