EDGE Scores 1-315.zip Someone created a Google fusion table time ago. It included many fields like format and developer, not just game and score. Google closed the service and I can't find where the creator moved it, or an offline copy. It had all game scores. Metacritic has compiled the last 20 years and is a good source for the latest scores. It includes some quotes from the review. https://www.metacritic.com/publication/edge-magazine
https://kotaku.com/the-cyberpunk-2077-review-drama-1845860765 This is ostensibly about Cyberpunk 2077, so I considered posting it on that thread, but it's more wide-ranging than just that game, covering: The movement from print to the web The relationship between consumers and critics Gamergate/Ethics In Game Journalism ("There was, apparently, a mailing list in which some writers chatted amongst themselves—no one ever invited me, so I’ve no idea what they said") Reviews as buyers' guides The distinction between a journalist and a critic The role of rating systems, and some publications' abandonment of numerical scores The supposedly declining readership of reviews (which he says was not true for Rock Paper Shotgun: "All its graphs were curves that continuously climbed, and the events of 2014 or any other time since made no impact whatsoever") The defensiveness of fans that leads to them harass/threaten reviewers who dare award their game of choice a less-than-perfect score. All of which are subjects we've had threads on before, of course, but I couldn't really find an existing one that it fits neatly into. So, a new topic it is! (And no, he doesn't mention the former leader of the Labour Party at all.) Some quotes:

Somebody suggested that if we are going to have a dedicated sports folder then we might as well make the most of it and have a thread for each round of games. Fixtures formatted by the rather excellent whoscored.com I've just done the top two divisions in England for now. I'll just link to the fixtures for La Liga, Serie A, the Bundesliga the Scottish Premier League and Ligue un.
