EDGE has been a joke for a long time now, particularly when it comes to review scores.

I don't particularly mind them in terms of their content/writing style etc. They just seem to feel a burning desire to be needlessly contrarian for the sake of it.

They aren't, those are honestly-held opinions. How many years is it going to take for people to get this?

I like the intention of using more of the 10 point scale. An Edge 6 doesn't normally mean a bad game

So much, man. [6] doesn't (or shouldn't) mean "bad"; it's above the average [5] (still not "bad").

Sometimes a 6 is better than a 7.

Games are generally rated from 5-10 these days, 5's being reserved for games of utter shitness like Sonic Forces.

Oddly enough I saw Sonic Forces next to Mario Odyseey yesterday, how the mighty have fallen :(

I hear reasonable things about Sonic Forces. The reception is definitely more mixed than universally panned.
