DCfnaf's Scale For Rating Movies/Video Games

DCfnaf What's happening guys, this is DCfnaf! I just wanted to make a very quick post about the scale I'm going to use when rating movies/video games. I will be using Destructoid's scale for my ratings.

10 -- Flawless Victory ( 10s aren't perfect, since nothing is, but they come as close as you could get in a given genre. The new game/movie to beat in its sector, we're talking pure video game/movie ecstasy here.)

9 -- Superb ( 9s are a hallmark of excellence. There may be flaws, but they are negligible and won't cause massive damage to what is a supreme title.)

8 -- Great ( 8s are impressive efforts with a few noticeable problems holding them back. Won't astound everyone, but is worth your time and cash.)

7 -- Good ( 7s are solid games/movies that definitely have an audience. Might lack replay/rewatch value, could be too short/long, or there are some hard-to-ignore faults, but the experience is fun.)

6 -- Alright ( 6s may be slightly above average or simply inoffensive. Fans of the genre should enjoy them a bit, but a fair few will be left unfulfilled.)

5 -- Mediocre ( 5s are an exercise in apathy, neither Solid nor Liquid. Not exactly bad, but not very good either. Just a bit "meh," really.)

4 -- Below Average ( 4s have some high points, but they soon give way to glaring faults. Not the worst games/movies, but are difficult to recommend.)

3 -- Poor ( 3s went wrong somewhere along the line. The original idea might have promise, but in practice the game/movie has failed. Threatens to be interesting sometimes, but rarely.)

2 -- Bad ( 2s are a disaster. Any good they might have had are quickly swallowed up by glitches/story problems, poor design choices/poor imagery, or a plethora of other issues. The desperate or the gullible may find a glimmer of fun hidden somewhere in the pit.)

1 -- Complete Failure ( 1s are the lowest of the low. There is no potential, no skill, no depth and no talent. These games/movies have nothing to offer the world, and will die lonely and forgotten.)

Note: I know that Destructoid's scale is used mainly for video games, but I will change certain phrases to make them sound like they're talking about movies. I will provide a link to this post on every single one of my review posts so that way all of you know how I am going to rate games/movies on my reviews. Okay, thanks for checking this out and I will see you all soon! PEACE OUT!!!


Hmm, I never thought about making an actual scale for my reviews. I just rate stuff based on how I rate anime series on MyAnimeList.net. Anyways, this is some pretty nice info on how your rating system will work. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I'm glad it was detailed enough for you. This also makes it easier for me to decide how I felt about the movie. With Rogue One, I thought: "Meh", so I picked 5. Pretty simple, right? I will also have a link to this page on all of my review posts to remind everyone as well. - DCfnaf

Did You Ever Have To Give A 1? - JPK

Not yet bro, but once I see that Diary of a Wimpy Kid garbage...something tells me there's a chance... :l - DCfnaf
