New on Crispy - User Ratings


Hello there. You might know me as "Chris Buecheler" - Game Trust author. Or you might know me as "CaptainHomeless" - guy who comments on a lot of articles. More likely, you just don't know me. Regardless, I'm here to tell you about a fun new feature on the site: User Ratings.

At Crispy, we have a pretty small development team. I handle the front-end stuff (design, html, css, etc). CG-Gabe is our lead engineer, and we have another engineer, stanblak also working on things. That's it! Yet somehow, we continue to keep the site humming along, and occasionally we even find time to debut great new features. This is one of those times.

You can now go to any game and give it your own Buy/Try/Fry rating -- try one: Arkham Asylum, Fallout 3, Modern Warfare 2 ... not only is your vote recorded, but you get to see it instantly effect the user ratings directly above the voting buttons. I believe that makes us "Web 2.0" ... or maybe you have to have a powder-blue color scheme to qualify for that. I forget.

Anyway, go find some games and rate them. You can also see the ratings on your user profile page, and even in the brand-spanking-new ratings tab in the Crispy HUD (aka: control panel). You can see what your favorite authors have rated on their pages, too. We'll be doing more stuff in the future to highlight the ratings, like showing off the top-rated games, so get started now, and we'll keep you informed as new stuff rolls in!
