GameRankings was a video gaming review aggregator, founded in 1999 and owned by CBS Interactive. It indexed over 315,000 articles relating to more than 14,500 video games. GameRankings was discontinued in December 2019, with its staff and older reviews being merged with the similar aggregator Metacritic. GameRankings collected and linked to reviews from other websites and magazines and averages specific ones. While hundreds of reviews may get listed, only the ones that GameRankings deemed notable were used for the average. Scores were culled from numerous European sources; the site used a percentage grade for all reviews. However, because not all sites use the same scoring system, GameRankings changed all other types of scores into percentages using a straightforward conversion process; when a game accumulated six total reviews, it was given a ranking compared to all other games in the database and a ranking compared to games on its console. As of the site's closure in December 2019, the highest rated game with at least twenty reviews was Super Mario Galaxy, with 97.64% at 78 reviews.
GameRankings was shut down and redirected to Metacritic, another review aggregator, on December 9, 2019.

The 2018 Union budget of India was the annual financial statement, demand for grants, appropriation bill and finance bill of India for the financial year 2018–19. It was presented to Parliament on 1 February 2018 by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley; the 2018 budget was considered to be a crucial one, as it would be the first since the rollout of the Goods and Service Tax regime in India. It was expected that the budget would either increase the exemption limit, or introduce a standard deduction for salaried people to reduce the tax burden, in addition to a reduction of the tax rate for the ₹5 lakh –₹10 lakh slab from 20% to 10%, an increase in the 30% band above ₹10 lakh; the budget came on the heels of a cut in the corporate tax rate in the United States. Printing of the budget began on 20 January 2018 with the traditional Halwa ceremony; the budget contained a number of significant announcements. It included a healthcare programme called the National Health Protection Scheme to cover 10 crore poor families.
The Government proposed to contribute 12% to the Employees' Provident Fund for new employees for three years. It was proposed that the medical allowance and transportation allowance be replaced by a standard deduction of ₹40,000 for salaried employees; the allocation to the Ministry of Defence was ₹404,365 crore, with ₹195,947.55 crore to be spent on the day-to-day running of the armed forces, ₹99,563.86 crore on modernisation, with the rest being allocated for pensions. There was no reduction in personal income tax rates, the Cess on income tax was to be increased from 3% to 4%. A 10% tax on long-term capital gains was reintroduced after a 14-year absence; the Corporate tax was reduced from 30% to 25% for companies with turnover up to ₹250 crore. Customs duties were increased for various products. A special scheme to tackle air pollution in Delhi was introduced; the salaries of Members of Parliament were doubled and their total emoluments are to go up from Rs 1.4 lakh to Rs 2.3 lakh per month.
Further, the salaries will be increased every five years. Reaction to the budget was mixed-to-positive. Political reaction to the budget was mixed. Bharatiya Janata Party leader and Prime Minister, Narendra Modi said that the budget is "development-friendly," focused on the needs of the rural areas and will strengthen the vision of a "new-India"; the Congress leader, former prime minister and noted economist Manmohan Singh suggested that the arithmetic behind the budget was "faulty". The general secretary of the Communist Party of India, Sitaram Yechury said the budget was "unconnected to ground realities". Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Sri. N. Chandra Babu Naidu is not satisfied with the budget planning as it ignored the special status and special package for the state. Aam Aadmi Party leader and chief minister of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal said on Twitter that the budget contained nothing for the middle class and traders. Chief Minister of Bihar, Nitish Kumar, Janta Dal leader, praised the budget for the proposals on minimum support price for farmers and the healthcare scheme.
Congress leader and former finance minister P. Chidambaram said that Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had failed the fiscal consolidation test, that there was no relief for the average taxpayer. Both of India's national indices, the BSE SENSEX and NIFTY 50, fell in the aftermath of the budget; the government, said that the fall in the stock market was not due to the budget. Finance and Revenue Secretary, Dr. Hasmukh Adhia said that fall in stock indices was due to global market meltdown, not because of the reintroduction of LTCG tax, he added the government will look into the slump. Credit rating agency, said that the budget, whilst supporting growth, does not address the problem of fiscal consolidation, leaves the problem of India's weak finances, to the next government. Economic Affairs Secretary, Subhash Chandra Garg, that the government would try to convince credit rating agencies, like Standard and Poor's and Fitch, on its commitments to fiscal consolidation
