"Most Viewed Games"

Post by TwoHeadedBoy » Tue Sep 20, 2011 4:09 pm

Haven't been on the RG website for ages, but just been having a browse around it today...

My review of Richard Scarry's Busytown on the Mega Drive is the "Most Viewed Game" with 22,949 views - the game in 2nd place only has 12,617!

How, and why, has my review had so many views? It's boggling, that's what it is.

Richard Scarry is great, but I've never heard of the game. There must be some Internet Bot reading the page that got stuck in a loop or something. It's very odd.

Thanks, appreciate that :)

Just can't fathom how it's got almost twice as many as the one in 2nd place is all.

Maybe there are a lot of people doing a search for Richard Scary & game & it directs them to your review.

Then they tell their friends about how great it is & they tell their friends....
