GOG verified owner score is 1 point (20%) higher than from the all reviewers score

GOG have updated their website with a host of options to sort and filter reviews. If you scroll down, you'll see 3 scores: all voters, verified owners score, and your custom filter score. Dragonspear has 2.5/5.0 from all voters and 3.6/5.0 from verified owners. BG1, BG2, and IWD don't have such a disparity: the overall and verified owners' scores are similar there.

Quite happy to see GOG add review options like this. I know I voted for some of the features. :) It'd be cool if they could eventually get a graph of scores like Steam has: You could easily see what times a game got negative or positive reviews.

    The difference is insanely huge. 1.1 score. It's more than 20%.

    72% instead of 50%. SoD rating on Steam (and on Steam only owners can leave the review) is also 72%.

    You can also click and ask to show you only reviews written by owners. And voila: top "most helpful" 3 (!!!) reviews (and all of them are very negative reviews) are gone from the page.

    Under the previous system you had to go to the 27th (!) "most helpful" review to find a non-1/2 star review (4 stars).

    Now, if you enable showing reviews by verified owners only ... you will see the 5 star review as the 4th (!) "most helpful" in the list.

    Huh. So gog verified owners gave the same score as steam users (who are all verified owners)? Yeah, that makes sense. I remember people saying there was no review bombing going on. Steam only allowing owners to rate their games is something people have been wanting gog to do. Sometimes the problem is high nostalgia scores or scoring an older version of a game.
