I was trying to get a list of the best PS4 games as rated by Gamespot but I'm having the following difficulties:
- If I access the Reviews page (https://www.gamespot.com/reviews/), leave it sorted by Release Date, choose Playstation 4 as the platform, change the minimum score to 8 and click on Refresh List, it will apparently work, displaying currently a total of 187 results, but if I try to get the same type of listing from the PS4 page clicking on "See All Highest Rated PlayStation 4 Games" (https://www.gamespot.com/ps4/games/) and applying the same filters then I will see games such as "Hand of Fate 2" and "Ruiner" which have a score of 8 but do not appear in the first mentioned listing...and the total in this second listing is of 374 results!? Why the difference?
- But not only that, if I try to use this second listing (https://www.gamespot.com/ps4/games/), sorted by the Release Date, only for Playstation 4 platform, for the release date of All-time and with the minimum score of 8 (the same exact configuration of the first listing) it will also show games which have a rating bellow 7 (examples: "Life is Strange: Before the Storm" and "LawBreakers")...this is even stranger as not only the Gamespot rating is bellow 7 but also the user average score! Could it be that you're taking in consideration other metrics about the user submitted scores?
I would really appreciate if you could look into this as it really kills the browsing of your reviews.
