GAME RATING SCALE:
We have started referring to and rating games by a rating scale. Here is how we are using this scale:
5 = Buy this! Buy this now!
4 = A good solid game!
3 = Decent with some bugs.
2 = Has great potential as kindling!
1 = Give me back the time I spent playing it!
Hot Topic: Unique Games
Cathy and Annette talk about the most unique games they have played. For the purpose of this discussion, they are defining “unique games” as, “a game that is one of kind in regard to art, theme, or mechanisms.” Additionally, the game should have been unique at the time it was released. It may have developed clones or sequels in the time since it was released.
