A while back I did some analysis on Metacritic data on over 8000 titles that someone else kindly scraped for me. This was the data that showed Day 1 review scores are higher than all subsequent review scores about 70% of the time, and significantly higher about 20% of the time. In short: don’t trust Day 1 review scores.
Anyway, here’s a link to that data set – the original is on one sheet and other sheets have seen my tinkering. The file is in Excel format and is about 112MB.
It’s in a Dropbox folder that I think should be available – let me know if it doesn’t work.
As always: the following original data set was sourced from Metacritic and I make no claim to the authorship of that information. This should be considered fair use and fair dealing with the data set. No monetary benefit exists to me from my analysis of this data.
