In light of the occasional over taking of the number 1 rank. I would like to get some thoughts. Not that avengers is the one, but is MM always expected to be the best game forever and ever? Don't you guys think it is possible that masses might just like another game more than MM at least for a few months?
I think most MM owners (like me) love the game and won't sell it because it's definately a keeper, but most of us don't see it as the very best game we own. Granted my favorite is different than my wife's favorite. But most won't tell you MM is hands down their favorite.
Is having MM as number 1 just a tradition?
Is it ranked there only because of price?
Are people simply of the herd mentality and adjust their rankings to fit the flow?
No doubt there are people giving rankings with the intent of manipulation, which I disagree with (it defeats the spirit of the ratings system).
I really enjoy old and new titles, but I guess it doesn't worry me when MM slips from number one, I really hope there are some new games and game ideas that are better and more fun than MM, that would be awesome!
As far as the talk of cutting or deleting ratings, you can't do that, all the opinions mount up the the ratings! Just because we don't like them doesn't mean we manipulate them. Either by going in with a bogus rating either positive or negative. Or by going in after the fact and say this one does or doesn't count towards the ratings. We just hope everyone rates honestly with no agenda
