That doesn't refute what I said. Edge uses the middle and the lower half of their scale more often than other publications.
Right, but my point wasn't just that they rated PlayStation games lower than Meta, my point was that they do it to a greater degree then games by other companies, so it was 12.9 points lower on average for those games I listed, now let's look at the last 10 Nintendo games they reviewed.
kirby Meta: 73 Edge: 70
xenoblade Meta: 83 Edge: 70
fe warriors Meta: 74 Edge: 70
metroid Meta: 85 Edge: 60
smo Meta: 97 Edge: 100
mario + Rabbids Meta: 85 Edge: 90
Hey! Pikmin Meta: 69 Edge: 60
Splatoon 2 Meta: 83 Edge: 80
Arms Meta: 77 Edge: 90
Super Bomberman R : Meta: 62 Edge: 40
So that's 5.8 points lower... So recently Edge has reviewed....
PlayStation Games 12.9 points lower on average
Nintendo Games 5.8 Points lower on average
That's what can happen when you work with small sample sizes: Outliers can skew the results significantly. Hellblade's score was surprisingly negative while ARMS' score was surprisingly positive. If only those two games get removed, you'll get ~7.0 for Switch/3DS and ~8.5 for PlayStation 4, so a difference that is lower than two points and therefore isn't big enough to indicate systemic bias. Rather than a platform-specific bias, it's more a question of why did the dislike Hellblade so much and why did they like ARMS so much.
That's because using more numbers of a review scale is only part of being a good reviewer. Of course it also matters that the scores can be justified, and Edge is without a doubt far ahead of Quarter to Three in that regards.
You said a publication is more credible if it uses more numbers on the scale. Quarter to Three does that and they are one of the least credible reviewers on Metacritic. Your original comment was nonsense because it does not consider how those numbers are used.
I said that Edge is more credible because of how they use their review scale, I didn't speak generally. Since I was talking about Edge, there was consideration for how the numbers are used, namely how Edge uses numbers.
My comment was nonsense only if you remove the context and pretend that I said something else.
