Does anyone else hate the ranking Sega games give you at the end of every damn mission/level/quest/puzzle!
It's like you work super hard to beat the level and then here comes an "E" ranking. Isn't that degrading?! It's like for what right? Makes you want to have to complete the level again until you get an "S". Am i right or am i right?

Yeah. And are you a hater of the E-A rankings they give after every completion of anything? Or do you not mind?

I haven't played many Sega games lately, but I'm guessing they are for replayability.

No, they do it purposely to be of annoyance to me.. (joke). Yeah i assume it's for that exact reason of replayability but i'd prefer a high score rather then a grade/rank on your performance. I mean that whole grading/ranking thing is frustrating. It makes you redo the same level so many times that at the end you really don't want to put up with it anymore and never touch that game ever again until maybe 5 years later when you've forgotten about it ,soon to discover why you'd quit that game in the first place.

Yes you're absolutely correct SeniorDingDong. "S" rank is the highest. I had forgotten.

But doesn`t the rank you recieve come from a score?
Seen in most Sonic games for example.

EDIT: Otherwise yea I don`t mind the rankings really and I have to agree with Josh, it`s for replayability in which you play more of the game instead of breezing right along through it.

Yes. But it's less stressful with there just being a high score rather then a grade/rank.

Well nobody said you had to get an A or an S to begin with. Really beating the game is simply beating the game. High scores and Ranks are provided for you to go back and the play the game more,(Its like getting your moneys worth).
High scores and Ranks are just nice little reminders on how good you did on that level :)

Just for you.

Yeah but some special people (like me) can't proceed onward without getting those special "S" ranks on every level. I can't go to level 2 without first getting an "S" on level 1 and i can"t go to level 3 without getting an "S" on level 2. Just can't. It's people like me that want everything to be perfect and done while beating the game and not after.

Change your attitude then.

At least they're using all ranks, in some games C or even B is the worst possible rank.

Getting a B after you bust your ass to scrape through alive in Umbrella Chronicles is a bit galling, but then getting an S rank in that or Excite <vehicle of choice> is quite satisfying.

I dunno, I try to ignore them, though when you're required to get the S ranks to unlock stuff and they're bloody impossible it does irritate me a smidge.
