what defines a quality game? Some revieweres absolutely hate adventure games, while I on the other hand adore them. I would give them 4's and 5's, while those not too partial to them would give them a two or three, but give a FPS or side scroller a 5 because those are the kind of games they are more partial too. One man's trash is another man's treasure...

Well thats the beauty of the abandonia system.
Everybody chooses which game he or she wants to review (games that look interesting to the reviewer) if this game fails to entertain the reviewer the reviewer will say so in his or her review of the game.
Nobody is forced to review games they don't like.

Basing it on the reviewer's score's not that good a way, I think. Take Star Goose, for example. I rated that 2, but it's a classic that shouldn't be lacking. Besides that, I could take a game like Elfland, which is crap, rate it a 5 because as reviewer, I'd love to have this game on the site... that would mean a game that's crap would get added, or even concidered. On the other hand, Curse of Enchantia was given a 2 by Stroggy, while I know that game's worth at least a 4. Stroggy just disliked the game's guts while it's one of the games I'm most fond of.
I'm just saying that part of the time an update'll take, is to look at each game individually and decide if it's good enough or not in team, so it won't depend on one person's tastes or likes. There won't be something like adding a game just based upon the reviewer's rating, as it's a system so full of holes a golddigger wouldn't even concider using it in a river.

I still think I gave it a good review.
And after 337 votes it got a 3 from the other members and visitors.
And since the reviewer score is usually lower than that of the casual gamers (check out gamespot and other sites if you don't believe me) I reckon I still did a good job.

Actually if you'll check out the latest announcement you'll see we will stop putting up below-average/average games, thus there will be more 3 or 4 star rating games.
