Game Reviews and Suggestion
« on: June 01, 2017, 12:15:26 PM »
I've been going through and playing all the "complete" SCI games here for the lulz and leaving reviews for each of them. That led me to a suggestion:

In order to present these games better to site visitors, these games really should have more reviews than they do. I think I've now reviewed all the "complete" games (except Black Cauldron, which is up next for me to play). I would invite all the "regulars" here to do the same.

The Suggestion I had:
At some point I complained that there was no way for me to grade a game's music and it is now worth 25% of the game's start-score. Since many of the games have no sound at all, it seems a bit harsh to give it  a 1-star rating (and sabotage the overall score) for something that isn't really much of a problem in these types of games. It also feels wrong to give it anything other than a 1-star for music because that would suggest the game has music/sound...Perhaps something like "Overall Presentation" which would included graphics and music, but not rely on either.

Edit: I forgot to mention that some of the games in the "complete" category don't seem to really belong there - such as "Osama Been Skatin" and "SCI Quest" the former which doesn't even qualify as a "game" as far as I can tell, and the latter is little more than the template game.

Can you provide a 'n/a', and just exclude it from the score (pun intended) in that case?

Cloudee would need to make any changes to the review form. It would be nice if he could be more active here again.

How about a "mini" or demo game category for those entries like Osama Been Skatin?
