According to What Rating?

 

What rating is overrated? And if there is a rating lower then that; is it still a higher rating than it should be?

Hmmm, thanks for the comment. I think I was getting at something vernacular, as in 'overrated' is a permanent status that applies based on opinion of speaker and irregardless of other 'proper' rating systems. Rating might be considered 'The opinion of my friends' in which case there is no rating other then words; do we sort opinions into an ascending ratings based format in our minds?<br />
No, I think people are just lazy. This group might have been better called "I don't really like guitar hero'.<br />
Because even if they referred to IGN ratings, or Gamespy's comparisons, it wouldn't change the fact people don't communicate as well as we would like to think- I think so anyway.

You know, i never commented on this the first time I ran across it, partly because I still don't know what to make of it. It's on of those thought-provoking posts you have to think on for awhile. But I thought I'd drop a note and say, thanks for the thoughts. It's always nice to get a new slew of thoughts sparked by something.
