Over the years I’ve grown disillusioned with most current rating systems for content. I’ve never been a fan of the star based system, yet wanted more diversity than the simple thumbs up / down method. Don’t even get me started on the number system used in video games.
So in response to this over the years I have developed my “Goblin” rating system. It attempts to mix how I feel about a work, while also giving an impression if a work is any good.
The beauty of the system lies in not given a definitive numerical value, but instead a subjective overall quality to the work. It relies not on where in the system a given work falls, but more what category it falls into. While you could force this system into a 5 star system or 2x it out into the traditional 10 numerical system typically found in games, you would be doing it a disservice.
I won’t pretend that it is a perfect system, but I like it. We will see how it holds up since I will be using it whenever I discuss things that I’ve recently consumed.
Lastly, if you wish to use this system by all means, have fun.
“Me just couldn’t hold it. Make stomach ache. No good.”
I just heaved this up and onto the floor. No really, you don’t want to consume that.
“You can eat it, but me no likey.”
I’ve managed to keep this sucker down, but it’s not good.
If you’re a fan of this particular kind of genre or style, you should like this.

Really, it’s good. You should consider it even if you normally don’t go for this type of thing.
“If you no eat, let me have it!”
