    If you simply wish people to know what you like and how much (I don't know why anyone would care... unless the reviewer has gathered personal lackeys and sheeple), then it doesn't matter, but if you are rating things for others to get a clue on what it is they're about to shove their fingers in and whether or not they should, you should put subjectivity more in the marginal and focus on the objective (as objective as you can) view on what ever it is you're reviewing. Most people don't give a shit about your (or any reviewers) taste in games, they just want to know about the game, so if you wish to be informative and unbiased, you focus on the merits of the game as it is designed before you colour it with your tastes, and rate it accordingly. It's much more difficult that to just write a corporate verbal fellatio or a hitpiece like it seems to often be.

    Yeah, absolutely, the ratings system is stupid if it's trying to be anything more than what one individual reviewer thinks.

    But hey, whatever you guys think.

    Do it your own way.

    They should pay me money to kick them in the dick. I'd be happy to oblige.

    Fallout 2 is a masterpiece in my opinion. Personally I love the real life references, I think they add to its greatness.

    Of all of fallouts successors new Vegas is the only one that got it right tbh. Fallout 2 is a great game but it's not a good fallout game imo. That said its good enough as a fallout game to be just below fallout 1 for me.
