Thinking about adding a score to the reviews

I really don’t want to stick a number or a star at the end of my reviews, but it’s a device that most everyone else uses and which a large number of readers look at if they don’t have time ot actually read what’s written. Not everyone either has the inclination to read a paper or plow through the details to get an idea of whether a game is good or not, but it does give a rough idea of where I stand on a title.

Or maybe do something like what Ars Technica has done, with their Buy or Don’t Buy recommendations? Or go for something bizarre like rating a game like Too Human with “Three out of Five Baldurs?”

I’ll give this some thought…
