If I gave Ultima Underworld an 8/10, but someone else said it was 8.5, which one is correct? Or should it be 9/10? Every reviewer will judge games differently based on their experience and tastes, so getting truly comparable reviews is impossible.

Certainly from my experience, even the same reviewer can be erratic in their grading decisions, based on mood or whatever.
If this is the case then we should also look into how the games are scored. For example we could have scores for graphics, sound, story, game play and then an overall average.

Who am I to judge their sanity? And who are they to judge my insanity?
