Hi, I'm Nathan Morse. You may remember me from such games as these.

You may notice that my ratings bell curve sits quite high. It's not because I love everything I play; rather, the bias comes from the fact that I simply don't play games I don't think I'll like.

My Top 10 are the ten games I rate the highest, ties broken by whichever has had more plays logged, ties broken by whichever takes longer to play.

My Hot 10 are the ten games with the highest Morse Hotness Metric, which is the product* of Gray Hotness Metric × modified Whitmore score** for me over the last 30 days, updated daily.


* Actually, it's the absolute value of the product, turned negative if any of the factors are negative.
** My modified Whitmore scale is actually the following formula:
w = (myRating - neutralRating)² × SIGN(myRating - neutralRating) / 2.025
where neutralRating is 5.5

Here's how that falls for the integer ratings:

1 -10.0
2 -6.05
3 -3.09
4 -1.11
5 -0.12
6 0.12
7 1.11
8 3.09
9 6.05
10 10.0

An interesting side effect of this product is that with games I don't like, the more I play them, the worse their score. This seems quite proper to me, because I should be all the more certain that I dislike it.

I'm testing a streamlined rethinking of the metric. The rankings below are represented by the above, scratched-out description, but the live Hot 10 is based on the experimental approach.
