All About wolfpackfrenzy
27Dec 10Every Christmas I get an influx of games, which I will be playing and reviewing over the next couple of months. And sometimes I have to remind myself to be fair and accurate when I'm rating games. I shouldn't be biased just because I have some favorite characters or genres. I have a spiffy formula that I give ratings to graphics, sound, gameplay, story, etc that computes a final score, but in general here is a table that describes my personal rating system. 10 = Perfect, not a single flaw. New and innovative gameplay. Engaging story.
9.5 = Near perfect, very minor flaws. New and innovative gameplay. Engaging story.
9.0 = Near perfect. Engaging story. Gameplay is excellent, but nothing new.
8.5 = Great game. Minor flaws with gameplay or story, but still great.
8.0 = Great game. A few more flaws with gameplay or story, but still great.
7.5 = Decent game, common flaws with gameplay or story, but Not enough to ruin the game.
7.0 = Flaws are becoming really annoying, not enough to ruin the game.
6.5 = Flaws nearly ruin the game, almost not worth playing.
23Mar 10So a buddy of mine at work advertised on the bulletin board that he was trying to give away his girlfriend's Sega 2. His girlfriend was just going to trash it. I responded saying that I've never heard of a Sega 2 and explained the Sega Genesis, Sega CD, Sega 32x, Saturn, etc. But I said I'd take it no matter what it was just cause I'm cheap and like stuff for free. We walked out to his car together and when he pulled it out it was a PS2. So basically, I was given a PS2 for free. It was pretty funny.
7Jul 09This is an "about me" post which describes a bit of my gaming history.
Where did I get my name?
I'm a NC State Alumni.
How long have I been gaming?
Since I was 7 years old, so over 20 years now. Holy crap I'm starting to get old.
What systems have I owned?
Atari, NES, Gameboy, Sega and Sega 32x, N64, PC, Xbox, and Wii. Although I can't say that I've owned a SNES or PS2, I've had family or friends who have them and I've played them just as much as if I've owned one.
What is my all time most favorite game in the whole wide world?
Zelda: OoT and a close second would probably be Warcraft 3.
What kind of games do I like?
I like all different kind of genres. FPS, Platform, RPG, strategy, racing, etc. I truly enjoy a variety of games.
What kind of game do I dislike?
The only games I really dislike are games that are similar or identical to other games. For example, I kind of dislike sports games. And its not that I don't like sports, its simply because every year they come out with a new football, racing, or baseball game that is almost exactly the same as the previous year. It's not enjoyable for me to keep buying the same games over and over. Sports are not the only genre that falls into this category, for example, Guitar Hero or Call or Duty have been done to death.
How do I rate games?
I have a secret formula. Basically I rate each category (story, gameplay, controls, fun, etc) and plug them into my equation to get an overall total. Its weighted so some categories are more important. The "Fun" category is the most important category and is also the category which is based on my opinion the most.
