< report >Any particular reason you voted 1 on v1290? You really think this this game has absolutely nothing to offer, and that it's the worst game you have ever played?

Exemplary user...

< report >My voting technique is different to most other people. The 1 vote is _in comparison_ to the other 9 games.

That's not saying that it's the worst game ever. That's not saying it's bad either.

And it's just luck that I've only completed 10 games...

< report >His system is also pretty flawed as it requires him to remember every VN he ever plays, or more realistically go back and play every VN he has played every time he plays a new one (Which is pretty farfetched for the more realistic option).

< report >That is not a flaw in just my system.

My system is based on feelings and technical (story, graphics, etc.) merit. I don't have to remember every game; if it made me feel better or worse than any other single game, I slot it in there.

I'm pretty sure that's what everyone else does; except they keep to the top half (why?).

< report >VNDB says a 1 is "worst ever". So you voting a 1 is pretty much saying it's the worst ever.

Granted no one can force you to follow the scale on VNDB. Vote how you want.

Most people vote relatively in line with the descriptors next to each number. Most VNs aren't completely terrible so it's rarer to see 1-4's. Also many people will only play VNs that have good reviews/decent scores so their votes will all be 6+.Last modified on 2012-06-14 at 03:45

Myself, I'd give something less than 5/10 only to something that I can honestly say "this is crap", and so far, I haven't read something of that nature. I'd say this is the case for many people. I feel that the lowest votes are meant to be for the crappiest of crap.

Like horseband says, many people, including me, pick VNs with high votes, just to be safe. So giving <5 to them is a very rare possibility. (Unless I hated a particular high rated VN for some reason.) (Also goes the other way around, like me voting MuvLuv higher than G Senjou no Maou cause I liked MuvLuv better, even though MuvLuv is pretty much overly criticized.)

Ultimately, however:
Granted no one can force you to follow the scale on VNDB. Vote how you want.
^ this is how it goes. As long as people don't purposely make troll accounts and give multiple votes, I'd say anyone is entitled to vote anyway they want, even if they want to give a 1 to every VN they read.

< report >This was definitely crap. Gave it a 4.
