Once you own a title does the rating given by other people matter? I
understand how a rating can help in the decision to obtain a game/video/other
but surely after that it's your opinion, your rating, which is important. So I
don't see the need for two rating fields and we shouldn't overwrite the user's

So the only way that that it becomes an issue is if you've acquired a game but
don't play it for a very long period (weeks/months) - just how likely is that?
If you've played it you've formed your own opinion and changed the rating so
you're no longer interested in the one from the metadata source.
I often find myself in a minority on these sorts of issues, I clearly don't
always understand my fellow man so maybe I'm wrong.
