I don’t understand the Median in the spreadsheet. There are 32 reviews of 75 games. The median of the reviews per game must be 0, since more than half of the games have 0 reviews. But the sheet shows it as 1.5? Does anyone understand this?
And now the (total) median is officially 1! We’re 8 reviews away from making the public median 1 (30 unique games, need 38 of 75,) and not far from making the overall mean 1. These milestones are fun to track.
Mods, should we pin this as we did last year?
I find when I edit it enough it jumps to the top of my recommendation in the tabs. And I also have a cron job to open it at 8 AM. But others might not see it right away.
I think people did a great job of targeting them last year. There was one with 5 votes, 2 with 7, 4 with 8, 12 with 9. I think a goal of 10 across the board may be unreasonable but we can get close. I think there’s a lot more potential value in reviewing sparsely-reviewed games than hitting one everyone’s reviewed and thrown ideas around about.
Two on the low end were Python games.
Last year’s tallies:
In 2021 we had some that required an unusual amount of installation. And there were threads on how to get them working. I don’t know if we’ll need that much this year. But if we do, I’m confident people will show up. The notes for Artful Deceit seem quite helpful.
I’m very happy to see that there are actually two reviews at the moment for Codename Obscura. The one mentioned below I found on the Playing -thread, so probably not by one of the authors in the IFComp competition? Sorry, I have not had much time to follow the discussions here, was the spreadsheet meant only for the author reviews?
