This poll is now closed.
Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge received 50 votes with an average rating of 7.14. The median was 8. The mode was 8.
Interestingly, all four games we have ranked so far have a median and mode of 8.

Today's game is Assassin's Creed III.

This is a daily "Rate the Game" series for Wii U games! I add all of the scores and divide by the number of votes for each game, figuring out the median and create a rankings list.

The Rule: I would prefer that people actually experience or play the game before voting. I have no easy way of proving this, so everyone is welcome to participate, but please don't make your score lower or higher than it otherwise would be just to change the averages. Give your honest rating on the day's title.


GAME RANKINGS LIST:
RANK/GAME/MEAN/#VOTES/MODE/MEDIAN/PUBLISHER
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Nintendo Land (7.57) (70 votes) (Mode of 8) (Median of 8) (publisher: Nintendo)
2. ZombiU (7.27) (75 votes) (Mode of 8) (Median of 8) (publisher: Ubisoft)
3. Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge (7.14) (50 votes) (Mode of 8) (Median of 8) (publisher: Tecmo Koei/Nintendo)
4. Call of Duty: Black Ops II (7.07) (72 votes) (Mode of 8) (Median of 8) (publisher: Activision)

Also, nominate your choice for tomorrow's game! The top nominated game when I close the day will be the game we rate tomorrow. We are also definitely rating eShop games, so you can nominate them too!

No doubt functions of group-think and the "professional" review ranking scale of 7-9. Makes for very uninformative review scores when everybody rates a game 7-9 regardless of objective quality.

I'm still in search of a site that actually reviews games fairly based on objective content, and isn't afraid to give a well-defended 2/10 or a 9.5/10 based on factors that actually contribute to consumers' potential enjoyment of the title.

Anyone have a go-to review site like that?
