Interactive Fiction Ratings, aka IF Ratings, is a website and database maintained by Chrysoula Tzavelas. The site first opened in mid-2003. Its intended purpose is to provide recommendations for newcomers to IF, rather than to provide an objective scale of quality. Visitors can search the site for specific authors or game titles, and if they wish, they may rate any games in the database from 1 (worst) to 10 (best) and add short comments about the games anonymously. They can, of course, also read the comments left by other users.

The list of games in the IF Ratings database is based on data from Baf's Guide's database, and thus, the only games that will be listed will be those available at the IF Archive. Users of IF Ratings cannot edit basic game information.

Users may also peruse the IF Ratings by various statistics:

  • 10 (or 20, 50) Highest Rated
  • 10 (or 20, 50) Most Votes
  • Top 10 games sorted by genre
