Game ranks on profiles

71 posts in this topic

I've always said eburk is an ASS... or was it "has a great ass"? I can never remember...

But yes, I love the rankings, I was surprised that my average was a B rather than a C considering how many games I hate.

However, I do retract the idea though, but for a different reason. You'd have to obtain 100% on all of your games to have an overall S rank. Screw that, lol.

That's what I've been trying too say! If you want your trophy profile to be like :eburk:,then you might as well start over! All 100% is a good trophy hunting insentive though. But it is a difficult one. I guess my assumption was based on the fact that evryone will strive for the Platinum "S" rank.

Nice idea!

I think S, A-F and maybe a U for 'Ungraded' if you have no trophies, or less than say 5% completion? Like the exams. :-)

So

U - 0%

F - 0-59&

D - 60-69%

C - 70-79%

B - 80-89%

A - 90-99%

S - 100%

Is this what you mean?

The grades aren't based on fixed percentages, they compare you to everyone else that has the game.

That would make sense.

"‘S-Rank’ is a term used in games, most commonly awarded at the end of stages with graded missions or side objectives.

Originally created in Japan where anything below grade ‘C’ was considered a failure. The 'S-Rank' allowed for a wider range of obtainable grades and thus player motivation, meaning that it was soon adopted by western developers who realized that the ‘S-Rank’ was much cooler than the boring ‘A’. An A rank is commonly obtained by getting a 90% to 95%. If the player is flawless or achieves perfection in something, it qualifies as an S . Many people have wondered what the S stands for… Special? Super? No one knows for sure."

Thanks for the explanation. That makes the existing ranking scheme perfect as is. Carry on.

When im finished if you want you could import that table off my db.. When i get bored i been adding shit to a database, so far i got about half the games done. Ive added, developer, publisher, esrb rating, marked 3d support, move support, genre, and source (Retail/PSN/Both) to the games table. Also i have been marking in my trophy table which trophies belong to which dlc for seperation

Example game. (Dont mind the total, retail, dlc fields i havent ran my update script)

Time aside, I'd imagine it would also be difficult, since ratings change from country to country - not only in terms of age, but also style. For example, the US ratings M and Teen do not apply in the UK, and European countries differ yet again.

Ratings differ yea, but if you know the ratings for each country a simple case and replace could work to display each countries rating based off just having the esrb (US rating)

Actually the easier way would be to have the user's point of origin be the factor on which database used...which would encompass an enormous amount of time inputting databases for each region/country. It would use up a lot of time and memory to have multiple tables, but it would be the easiest way to implement. If it was an important feature it might be worth the trouble, but for something minor, would you be willing to do it when there are more pressing issues at hand?

Your percent vs average game percent, it also depends on what the average percent is too.

That's interesting. Doesn't make me feel as bad to know others sucked just as much. :P

My original goal was to try and platinum every game I had. Now it just seems like an easier and more obtainable task to just get all of my games to S and A rankings. :)

I agree with a lot of people here about the "D" rating, I think it would be good for the 0% - 5% mark as this would definitely be a fail.

Also the rank colours would change to as follows:

A - Green

B - Yellow

C - Orange

D - Red

:)

Haha I agree with the D/F...I shouldn't be getting C's on all my 0%'s ;).

0% should be F for no effort being put in!

But would it be possible to introduce, say, a "D" rank for a fixed 0%? I know the other rank percentages aren't fixed but I think (like the "S" rank) a fixed 0% rank would be a nice touch :)
