i never actually thought about that, but you're right. i see other sites review VC games like ign, but MC doesn't for some reason. its as if they think VC rereleases are irrelevant.

This is an fantastic idea. I can guaranteen you that the Wii would have a better stand at Metacritics then it has now if they would include VC games.

Do they include Xbox Live Arcade games? If they do, then I agree with VC being on Metacritic.

They do. Games like Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Rez are decade old at least.

The sole purpose of Metacritic is to place an average on these games.

Not for all games. What about games like Super Mario Bros. 3? Plus, it is about aging. You know, the Atari2600 has the best graphics after all, right?

I never thought about it that way. you are so right about this. I mean writing out a new review for it for people who never got a chance to play it might work. telling them if the game has aged well or not. maybe metacritic should think about that

I dont believe they do because they mostly are old games which already have a rating most likely. Thats the reason.
