These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: IGN 64
8.8: Mostly averted. The editors were HUGE Nintendo fanboys and never gave a good game a less-than-decent review.
One notable example is San Francisco Rush: Extreme Racing. Although they did reward it 8.9, that score is higher than in most other publications, whose editors did not play the game very extensively (Nintendo Power: 7.8; Electronic Gaming Monthly: 6.75; Gamespot: 7.1) and tended to evaluate it against high-tier racing sims such as Gran Turismo. Casamassina correctly recognized Extreme Racing as a stunt racer and reviewed it as such.
