– Grading Scale –
I’ve never liked the game grading scales that many magazines or websites tend to use. Numbers can be so arbitrary so I’ve come up with my own scale which uses a basic (how much cash should I spend on this game) idea. There have been some questions regarding how I grade so I’ll just give you the lowdown here.
Here is a basic example of a score that I would give – $45/$60.
The first number is what I deem the game is worth in cash value. The second number is what I paid for the game or how much you can expect to pay for it at the store.
So in this example, if you were to find the game for $45 or less, I’d say get it because I feel that the entertainment value is worth at most $45. If you find the game for more than that, I’d say wait until the price drops below the $45 threshold. Voila! Hope this has cleared things up.
