I only rate machines I like.

Well, here is the thing about ratings. The condition of the machine greatly affects the players perception.

I fully plan on changing my rating of MM to a more positive one. The first time I played MM it was a piece of crap. My rating reflected that.
The second time I played MM it was pretty darned cool. Because the machine was in great playable shape.

There probably needs to be a rating added to the condition of the machine you played that you are basing your rating on.

Quoted from davewtf:

either that or you shouldn't rate based on playing a poorly set up game.

Yes, but at the time that was the best MM I had played. Since I did not have any other MMs available to play, that was all I had to go on.
The best you know is the best you have played. Not all of us have access to all the top quality A list games.
So if we dont play NIB, we can't rate a machine?
That would be why machine condition would be a nice rating addition.

All I know is the two best machines I played over the expo 2013 weekend was WOZ and MM. So there you go.
