* This is a game I would keep on my hard drive.
* This game was presented professionally.

* This game ran smoothly on my machine.
* For a retro game, it was pretty original.
* I'd love to see the code for this game.

A score of 10 represented strong agreement with the statement, while a score of 1 conveyed strong disagreement. The scores in each category were then combined to determine the game's overall score. Games are ranked according to their overall score.
