If you're going to link a definition, link the whole thing
"of only moderate quality; not very good."
Since you only linked the definition you wanted, I did the same :)
To clarify, I'm using mediocre as "average" here. My point still stands.
As does mine, especially considering the edit. A 7/10, to them, translates to a 'B'. In school, it is a 'C'.
Besides, Metacritic calls 50-74 mixed or average, but that's them. I'm talking in general. 7/10 is considered above average (or a "C" in school).
I think people usually think of 70 as an average score. Just look at No Man's Sky... That has a 71 on PS4, and people generally consider it as a bad or average game (at launch, at least).
Eh, I don't let people choose my points for me. For instance, many hated GTA IV. Yet, the numerics work against that. Plus, something can't be both bad (below average) and average. :P
But, it's your view. I just differ on the definition of mediocre.
