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 rating revolving around "too much <blank>" and a 7.8 rating.

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]].

The name comes from the unimaginable havoc created by [=GameSpot's=] review of the UsefulNotes/{{Wii}} version of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' in November 2006, which awarded the game a great-but-not-amazing score of 8.8 out of 10. The Internet erupted in anger and chaos, as the game was one of the most anticipated games of all time and near-perfect/perfect scores were expected. Ironically, [=GameSpot=] gave the [[UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube GameCube]] version of the game a score of 8.9, despite claiming the Wii version was superior. [[note]]The reason for the score discrepancy is that the Wii was theoretically a more powerful console than the [=GameCube=], so the Wii version's score was adjusted downward as a result.[[/note]]

See {{four point scale}} for an explanation of why 8.8 out of 10 would be considered a low score. See also {{critical dissonance}}.
