I hate that with video game/movie reviews that just give out numbers. The amount of people I've seen who have said they won't okay anything lower then an 8 is ridiculous. Like would a game rated with a 7 be worse the one with a 8? Maybe, but 7 isn't a bad score. I think a 7 is considered good on the IGN rating so it's so dumb

I've seen 4's on video game reviews be described as average. Which if a game did get a 4/10, i think it failed. Or is that, because on average every game fails?

Average =/= Median

This is true if you are talking about median average. 5 is the the median average of 0 and 10.

If you are referring to a test, I doubt many people would consider 50% as average. It is quite bad, which is why it is a failing grade. In theory, the mean average score is normally 70%, hence 7 of 10 being average.

If you are rating a movie, I could see giving an average movie a 7. I would consider 5 or 6 being on the bad side.

Statistically speaking, the range from the 25th percentile to the 75th percentile is considered the "majority" or "expected" behavior (i.e., 2.5/10 up to 7.5/10). I think what you're describing is the majority, not an average. The average is not the median and the median is not the average.

Yeah I think of 5 being the "middleground" rating for things....it's not super great but it's not terrible, and obviously anything above that is good.

Even a movie like The Godfather only has a 9.2/10 on the site IMDb. Because it's a pretty harsh rating site and there's No such thing as a perfect 10. "Average" means different things across different types of rating scales etc.

Since when does anyone consider 7/10 average???

Questioning a system in place doesn't mean someone isn't paying attention.

In game reviews this is average, 90+% of reviews are usually between 6(not good) to 10. If u take the average all reviews made (in a year for example) by major game reviewers im pretty sure the average would be around 7+.

There was a research that people rated each other on average like a 7. Despite beiing a 3 or 4 I think qoves covered it somewhere on youtube.

Also regarding ugly when is someone ugly? When average (so a 7)? Or when someone is truely deformed? Or when someone don't get stared when outside and get no matches on dating sites?

Average in this case is (simplified) "what the majority of people get". Average doesn't mean the middle value, it means a performance which isn't notably better or worse than what most people do.

A 50% would be considered failing. A D is 60% which is still barely passing, and i would consider 60% barely enjoyable.

I like this system, but a lot of people consider 50% a average. If something got a 50% it failed (bad).

Average means not "ugly." So yes 7/10 is not ugly.

6s can be sexy btw.
