I don't see why an 'Overall Rating' should matter too much, but... It would only take a few seconds to give one, so what's the big deal about not giving an overall rating?
Say you give the story a 8/10, graphics 5/10, sound 6/10 and gameplay a 3/10, then the overall rating would be a 5.5/10. It's easy to find out the average of all the ratings you've given per category.
If yer not sure how to figure out the average of a sum, then you need to add up each rating and then divide it between the amount of ratings... if you get what I mean. In the example I gave, it's 8 + 5 + 6 + 3 divided by 4, because there are four numbers.
At current, we haven't had any reviews give ratings to each category/aspect of the game (such as story/graphics/etc.), we've only had them give an overall rating without giving individual ratings.
So what you're suggesting is basically number 3 from the list I mentioned above:
3 - More than one subject-based rating requirement (same as above, but would require more than one aspect of the game to be given a 1 to 10 rating).
And that makes sense, I just wanted to clarify. =]
Also, I think Shaddoval is implying we have a mixture of overall rating and #3.
Am I correct in assuming that?
