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.

    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.

    Of course, it's not so impressive to notice how stupid are some kind of people... Shitstorm is always a prerogative of idiots, who talks without even knowing the subject.
    Thank you for sharing this, another brick on the wall for my desire of Apocalypse :D

    Another change I would bring to Steam reviews, I wouldn't allow anyone to review a game until the refund period runs out. That way, they can't buy a game, review bomb it and then refund it - all within 10 or 30 minutes.

    When the refund period has expired, then I would give owners a chance to pour that venom on the reviews section. Not before, it's too easy to abuse.
