There are a number of influential/popular/historically notable games that I consider to be ambitious but ultimately unsuccessful experiments. If you think I've rated a game far too low, there's a good chance I've excluded my rating from its average. My ratings are based on the question of "Is this game worth your time, compared to other games?", and I don't rate low out of spite, I promise.
