I'd love it if reviewers utilized this one weird trick

I was thinking: the ratings reviewers give in their reviews are useless-ish.

Everyone uses the rating scale differently. An average game for me gets a about a 5, whereas another person's average rating might be, say, a 7.

I know people whose average ratings are above 8. When they give a game an 8, it may sound impressive, but it's not, it's average for them. They just love everything.

I would therefore be overjoyed if reviewers included screen caps of their ratings distributions in their reviews, like so:



That is all.

My new game Stinker is now a real thing that you can buy in real places, so I'm again taking up the mantle of daily challenges on Twitter, and reposting them here.

I'll be the judge, I'll select a winner for this one on August 26 at 2:15pm EST (if there are any entries), and the winner each day shall receive 1 very special geekgold (i.e. normal geekgold)

Enjoy
