Eurogamer has dropped review scores

The optimistic side of me loves this. It puts the emphasis back on the words, rather than a semi-arbitrary number at the bottom.

The pessimistic side of me can’t help but notice that this is exactly what Joystiq did just a couple of weeks before it was shut down.

But this also means that Sunless Sea got the last ever Eurogamer 1010. I can’t think of a better way for review scores to go out.
