Now games can be marked and recognised as Shovelware. Should they now all default to a vaule of zero points as a reflection of that?

Then where does it end people will want more then this to be classed as zero points. It’s too big of a can of worms to open

Not to backseat. But I don't want to discourage those who disagree with this question from posting their thoughts and opinions.

 

Everyone deserves their say.

No, it isn't.

 

Only Shovelware Bros think like that.

 

 

It's not - I don't think I have anything that is currently considered Shovelware, and I'm not against doing this for those current crop of Shovelware -  but I do worry about that precedent a little.

But yes, yes they should be worth nothing.

Happy to see a zero point function put in. To be honest, it's pretty clear what is and isn't shovelware. I don't really understand why people are wringing their hands over semantics here.

 

Cleaning house in this way would be great and for the minority (emphasis on minority there) of games that are truly truly borderline, a thread could be set up around that. No point in hindering something when the majority of titles in question are objectively shovelware.

 

It would be a little more work for the PSNP team, but it's a way better alternative than having all of this vapid shite smeared all over the site.

I agree, just games under 20 % Rarity should count, everything above is Shovelware. Autopops, Stacks, Story Games without Fighting and Visual Novels shouldn't count either.

Nothing is perfect, but some things are more problematic than others, and doing more in making the leaderboard a redundant feature for the majority of those who use the website.

 

If you are so inclined to actively want to compete for a higher ranking on the leaderboard, you have no choice but to resort to Shovelware. This is something which can be addressed by this website. Autopops can't be, and are a core part of the PlayStation eco system anyway.
