I realize this has been covered before but just had to say the rating should be honest and for fun. I know we all like different. But it’s also clear when a game is being rated just to lower the overall rating.
Here’s an example of a Pinsider 2 days on the site so he probably has other accounts here as well. He rated several pins at 10 and then several pins at 1.0
1.0 is the lowest possible in every category. So if it has good music or lights or theme integration he still just rated as the worst possible pinball machine.
Also likely every pin is rated somewhere between 7 and 10 and so if someone tried to reverse sand bag it would only be a 2-3 point grade upgrade but if someone rated at 1 that’s a 7-8 point downgrade.
Might be there should be a way to toss out any votes of 1.0 or 2.0 or so on as bogus.
