yes but even if somebody hasnt played a game and seen its rating, judjing on if it bad or good, theyll go with the rate. IGN pretty much tells us what good whether we like or not. But if you like a game but other ppl dont, so what, u like it, and nobody can tell you how you feel about a game. Besides, most games dont suck. They compare it to other games and get results. kinda like my childhood.
