NEW YORK — April 1, 2012 — Paradox Interactive today launched an all-new platform to objectively quantify the art of games journalism. The new site, MetaMetaCritic (http://www.meta-metacritic.
“MetaMetaCritic will provide a more accurate, balanced system for reviewer reviews,” said Lars Larsson at Paradox Interactive. “In a landscape with so many diverse scales for rating games journalists, it’s hard to get an idea who the best writers really are. We all have different criteria for what makes a good review. How do we measure value and re-read value? And some of us try to base our ratings on abstract concepts like tone, voice, or whether an article was ‘finished’ or not. I’ve seen a lot of reviews get criticized lately for releasing day-one counterpoints – and don’t get me started on the ending of the Mass Effect 3 review.” Larsson continued.
Select media groups have already cited MetaMetaCritic scores as providing a good guideline for journalists’ bonus pay. The site is live now at http://www.meta-metacritic.net
