Did you know? Game score based on time-to-crate

Here’s a first article for a “Did you know?” series!

Did you know

At one time in the game review world, an online game magazine called “Old Man Murray” (aka OMM) which was usually critical of games that received strong reviews elsewhere, used a very unique way to rate games. They used: time-to-crate.

Depending on how long it took before the first crate or barrel was introduced, points were given. The longer it took, the better was the score and vice versa.

One game made a joke about it: ONI. Its developers inserted in the very first level a crate with a texture on it that said : “TTC 1.1”, meaning “Time-to-Crate 1.1 seconds”.
