Scoreless reviews means less exposure, especially on metacritic. Which leads to less sight traffic, less revenue and less money to pay mods; and me to do nothing.

Pretty sure VGC was neve on metacritic in the first place



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Indeed, and tbh Marc from Metacritic clearly had no intentions of ever adding VGC, so to be honest that kind of freed us up to do as we pleased.

You're not biased enough?

We don't know his real reasons - maybe he just doesn't like the site - but we've applied several times over the years, comprehensively filling in the application forms, but he always comes up with an excuse (initially it was that the site design wasn't good enough. When we changed that he said it was because certain site functionality was missing. When we added that in he then said it was because he wasn't adding any new sites that year, etc. etc.).

That's some pretty poor excuses he came up with. Poor Gamrconnect review guys

But the potential... Have we given up on our talented review team to make meta, just because one person doesn't believe? Must we crush their dreams of fame?

I think that's an oversimplification, no?

My company just acquired two companies, and we're working to unify ourselves. Things are going "back to how it was before," but with 5 times the employees and 10 times the resources.

I said that because gamrReview was part of VGC in old days... you could even add user review or stuffs like that... VGC splited in two or three sites at time.

All these feature was part of VGC in the past.

Well VG Chartz use to be apart of I wanna say GameRankings (or Metacritic) but it's not anymore, maybe they were dropped and there's no chance of being accepted back into it hence not caring to be accepted as a site for reviews on Metacritic/GameRankings.



Scoreless reviews only denies the possibility of being added to the metacritic or gamerankings database thus reducing potential web traffic.

One thing I'd like to see is adaptation to mobile phones, the website as it is is clumsy.
