It gets annoying and feels repetitive because of the music, change that out (Pinsound shout out!) and the game is magically transformed
Quoted from Zablon:
The number of votes also plays havoc on that list. Take Alien for example. Overall there is not that many people who have played it, and while maybe it might be a great game, not many actually would know first hand, yet due to the higher scores by the few # of people, it is rated at 50 right now.
I know that 'your picks' being on 'top lists' is something of a pride and justification thing, but in reality they are nonsense and very biased. I don't find them entertaining as most people just start arguing and being assh@ts about it
Wait, is there not a modifier to weight each score based on the number of votes? That would certainly explain why ever new game comes out on top immediately after release
