Awesome feature!  Gave a bunch of high ratings to your negative reviews of 360 games.

So far so good guys!  Everything is running smoothly.
I fixed the Articles menu problem - thanks for the heads up Verm!

You'll be happy to know that the next phase will be to post various "reports" about voting patterns.  For example, which systems are getting the most votes, or which readers grades diverge the most from the critic's.  The possibilities are endless and I'll be open to idea once this is put into place.

I was thinking I could add this to a new panel on the right side of the main page.  It would show a random report, but you would be able to page through them all.

Yep, it works great! I voted on all of the 2600 games I own. Time consuming, but fun! Thanks Dave!

So...you give high ratings to games you actually like, or just give "opposite" ratings to be a contrarian?

All right, now we can rebut some of these unfair marks...

Nicely done Critic.  I went through the 2600, NES, and Genesis sections already.  I only voted on games I've played in recent years so that nostalgia wasn't a factor.  My votes were pretty much in line with the way others have voted.

I'm honestly not too sure on the VGC's site traffic but giving this a few months and the review scores should stabilize. Right now there aren't enough scores so people who put out funky outliners really stand out.

Submitted my grades for nearly all of the consoles featured on this site; it works like a charm and if your opinion fluctuates, like mine, you can change your grade and it will keep the same number of voters.

Critic, besides starting the site in the first place, this might be the most genius idea on here since.

The only downside, of course, is now all the Mario fans are going to vandalize your extremely well-reasoned Super Mario 64 review by making it an A for the user score....


SUGGESTION (if even possible):

I think it would be cool if you could click to see each individual user score.  For example, let's say that Sonic the Hedgehog has a B user score with 4 votes.  That's semi-useful to know, but you'd learn a lot more if you could click that and see each individual vote.  Was there a B-, B+, and two B's?  Or was it three A+'s and one crazy outlier that gave it an F?  Perhaps both sets of votes result in a B user score, but they tell two completely different stories.  I think it would be cool to see that info, if implementable.
