Ratings confusion (Gaming)

You list your site's rating system as:

The WTFB Rating System:
Fanboy Worthy
Matthew McConaughey
Straight to Streaming
Dumpster Fire

This makes sense. Five ratings seems sensible, equating to essentially Highly favorable, favorable, neutral, unfavorable, highly unfavorable. That seems to cover the range of feelings with regards to a game.

And yet you rate it out of 10, with a decimal.

I'm super confused.

Haha. People who don’t listen to our podcast are often confused by just the names. The numerical value is for people who want a more “traditional” rating. But thanks for the input! It’s helpful to know that might actually make it more confusing.
