HEY! Gamespot uses 5 as average, not 7.5, unlike everyone else.

50 latest PS3 reviews, only 13 of them scored below a 6.

5 is not their average at all -__-


Just want to clear up the fact that the op is not saying that the average score for all GS reviews is a 5, but rather that GS considers a 5 to be a game of average quality.

GS doesn't consider a 5 to be a game of average quality. That's only what their score descriptions say, but what they say in their reviews often contradicts that. Aside from that, the average is the average. It's the 'medium standard' set by all games together. If a website truly considers a 5 an average game, then summing up all reviews and dividing them by the amount of reviews should be around the 5. This is clearly not the case. Same goes for just about every reviewer out there.

According to Gamespot's own rating description, 4.5 is "poor", not average. So stop with the denial.


I never said 4.5 was average, I said 5 was average therefore it's marginally below average. Troll harder.
