~Scoring System~

80-100 (4-5 / 8-10) = Highly enjoyable releases & All-time favourites
60-79 (3-3.5 / 6-7) = Stuff that is satisfactory, although it has low to moderate replay value (due to various inconsistencies)
40-59 (2-2.5 / 4-5) = Mostly mediocre or underwhelming
1-39 (0.5-1.5 / 1-3) = Detestable junk (usually irritating, but some of it can also be quite humorous as well XD)
