Unfairly Rated

With every new game released comes a new rating from various rating sites. However, when a new game is released more multiple platforms, multiple ratings are given. Yet, these ratings are usually all based on the same principles. Then, after giving the rating, they compare it to the other consoles. For example, Fallout New Vegas was given an 8.5 for Xbox 360, but a 9 on PC. Why? Because the PC handled the graphics better and let the game run smoothly. I don't find this fair at all; it is obvious an Xbox 360 cannot stand up to a PC. And yet, the reviewing sites always make a comparison between PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. To compare these things is like comparing Apples, Oranges, and Plumbs. They are all different. In my opinion, each game should be rated on what the console can handle and compare it to one of the best made games for that console. Yes, the PC is most likely the best when it comes to performance, and the PS3 probably has the best graphics, but they are not the same well oiled machine; thus, they should each be rated on what they CAN do and not what they CAN'T do. If you always look at the negatives of a game, you don't see the greatness that may be within it.
