The CoDec Rating System
The Way HardCore Gamers Review Videogames

The CoDec Rating System
 
The CoDec Rating System is a simple yet powerful way to review videogames. Reviews are based on final games, which we either purchase or rented.
 
(0 - .50): The Worse Game Ever Made or at it's greatest one of the worse games of our life-time.
 
(.75 - 4.75): Better then the worse game of all time. But still the kind of game you'll throw away, even if it was given to you for free.
 
(5.00 - 7.75): Complete crap, you'll find little enjoyment here. Only the brave shall apply.
 
(8.00 - 9.75): Good crap, this type of game ONLY deserve a rental or if you could purchase it under ten bucks.
 
(10.00 - 13.75): Average, there's enjoyment in this game. Just not a lot. But you'll find it.
 
(14.00 - 17.75): Great, It has flaws, but you'll be having to much fun to notice or care.
 
(18.00 - 19.75): Amazing, One that deserves your $50plus dollars. But there are some flaws keeping it from receiving The CoDec Elite Award.
 
(20.00 - 23.75): One of the Greatest Games Ever Made. But there's still something missing.
 
(24.00 - 25.00): Possibly The Greatest Game Ever Made or at least one of the greatest games of our life time.
