Focus: Video Game News, Reviews, Features, and Community
Founded By: William Saw and James Cobb
Type of Site: Non-commerical, independent, editorial opinion, news blog
MonsterVine is an independent video game news and editorial blog that launched on November 18, 2008. The founding members William Saw and James Cobb envisioned a gaming site that would make a statement and ultimately showcase the best undiscovered talent from the internet. We convey our own unique voice through the latest video game news, reviews, editorials, features, and commentary on video games we are passionate about. Our aim is to create worthwhile content that creates an impact on our gaming audience.
MonsterVine approaches the topic of video game reviews by using what journalism is all about, words. Our approach focuses upon the breadth of our opinion and how effective we are in conveying it to the reader. Our intent when reviewing a game is to ultimately judge whether a game is fun or not. We now classify our reviews on a numerical scale out of five in order to best serve our readership. Our hope is to make our reviews accessible under a universal grading scale. We call this The Final Word and our countless reviews have proven that it works.
5/5 – Excellent
- While the game is not perfect, it is recommended by the reviewer without hesitation.
4.5/5 – Great
4/5 – Good
- The game has obvious flaws and setbacks that hamper its overall enjoyment, it is still worthy of a recommendation by the reviewer.
3.5/5 – Fair
3/5 – Average
- While there is appreciation towards the games aspects, the reviewer felt the title could have been better executed.
2.5/5 – Mediocre
2/5 – Poor
- The games cons outweigh the pros.
1.5/5 – Terribad
1/5 – Abysmal
- You might as well make a bad analogy of why this game sucks.
