@HolyMackerel "I've noticed user scores are almost always more accurate than the metascore anyway"
I strongly, yet respectfully, disagree. Most user scores are either insanely overrated or insanely underrated.
Whenever someone likes the game, they give it a ten. If they do not like the game, they give it a zero. No matter how good a game is, someone will undoubtedly not like it, and give it a zero. This drags the score way down, making it seem not as good as it really is. As for the tens, if they liked the game, and were giving it a logical score, an eight or nine would be the right score. If they did not like it, a four or three should be used. When you do the math, you will understand what I am saying.

tl;dr playing a game does not make you automatically make you a good reviewer of the game, and so user reviews are almost always a dodgy thing to check.
