Ratings Nightmare

Erik Westfall checks in today with another column. This week Westfall talks about the ratings nightmare many gamers go through when they see what their favorite players were rated by a company.

Quote:
"The first thing I usually do when playing a new sports game is go into various team rosters and check how my favorite players are rated. I do it every time without fail. However, upon getting into the roster, I always find that someone has been underrated or overrated."

I can undstand that. I don't know if anyone saw CP3 becoming the player has has become or Shaq hooking up with father time. Most analyst were annointing Deron Williams the next best. Sports ratings are always playing catch up.

Re: Ratings Nightmare

I share the same routine mentioned in the article. I always check out ratings when I get a game, though I usually at least play one quick game first. Sure, there are frustrations and the occasional glaring mistake, but I think most games do a pretty good job with the ratings. Without a crystal ball it's practically impossible to get them "perfect." And even if you somehow managed that feat, there would still be plenty of people arguing and complaining that they're favorite player didn't get the respect they deserve.

Re: Ratings Nightmare

No disrespect but whoever does NBA 2K's ratings needs help badly. I can't excuse some of the default ratings that various players have in certain categories. But to the naked eye it is acceptable, but to someone that KNOWS the game, some of the stuff that they give people is inexcusable.

Re: Ratings Nightmare

I don't edit the ratings because if I did then I'd be doing exactly what the raters did - making an opinion based on my judgment.

I don't hate on people that do edit ratings. I've always been a firm believer of making the game you want to play. If you think Paul should be rated a 99 in speed then go for it. That's how you see him play. I'm no one to tell you what's right or wrong.

But, that's also why I get a bit upset when I see people hit the ratings so hard and criticize them. The raters are just making a judgment like you are. They are basing it off what they see.

No one would rate any player the same.
