This trope has other numbers as well, one example being IGN's famous 7.8 rating of Pokemon OmegaRuby/AlphaSapphire because of "too much water", generating dozens of satirical IGN ratings revolving around "too much" of something and a 7.8 rating.

Gamers, reviewers, and publishers all share the blame equally for allowing these controversies to arise. Angry gamers pile the pressure on reviewers to award high profile titles higher scores, often forcing editors of video games magazines to revise their scores and strip themselves of all credibility in the process. ''NGC'' magazine once gave ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'' a mediocre score. [[CriticalBacklash They received so much backlash]] that they eventually conceded and jokingly included a [[TakeThatAudience perfect score sticker for readers to apply over the original score if it upset them that much]]. [[DramaticIrony Ironically]], VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures ended up being one of the ''most hated'' Star Fox games after time had past.

On the other hand, film critic Creator/RogerEbert [[http://www.rogerebert.com/answer-man/why-did-the-chicken-cross-the-genders once pointed out]] that even such acclaimed movies as ''Film/Casablanca'' and ''Film/StarWars'' have ratings ''lower'' than 8.8 on Website/IMDb. All things considered, a less-than-perfect score doesn't necessarily mean a ''bad'' score.

'''8.8''' is a {{fan speak}} term that describes the stir created in the video game community when a high profile game receives an unexpected review score by a major reviewer, especially when it significantly differs from the general consensus. This is especially jarring because professional video game reviewers tend to give out [[FourPointScale very similar scores]].
