Shhh… it’s a quiet edition of Mystery Steam Reviews

Mystery Steam Reviews asks you to remember these forgettable video games

We don’t like numbers round these parts. We’re more interested in telling you whether a game is worth your time with words. One person’s three star review is another’s seven out of ten, so it’s just better to evaluate games via text. However, there are a lot of folks that think otherwise. They enjoy giving scores to games. And, without them, we wouldn’t have a Mystery Steam Reviews this week. So, thank you, score-givers. Read more
