Well two things..
1st - Why does RDR2 hold the Meta record to you this gen when 2 Nintendo Games came out previous to it that hold the same score? If anything Zelda BOTW was the first this gen to achieve a 97 meta so that's the game to beat not RDR2 which only matched the record.
2nd - I cannot see any game this gen surpassing a 97 meta, maybe come close to matching it but not getting a 98. Too many troll reviews out there that will guarantee it wont happy. (I might be wrong) but I highly doubt it.

Apparently, BotW is a "low" 97 in the Metacritic rankings. Not sure why...probably due to possible hidden decimals that ranks the difference between the games that score a 97 or whatnot. I guess that's what the OP means when mentioning RDR2 being the highest rated game of the generation in accordance to Metacritic.

Actually Zelda both Beats and Loses to Red Dead on Metacritic. It is "greater" than the PS4 version, and "Lesser" than Xbox One Version, that is metacritic ranking. However the Xbox One Version also does not have the bulk of the reviews on it. 

However both titles are 97, and both are "highest rated current generation" games along with Super Mario Odyssey (making three titles with 97 for this generation). If you are going to do hidden decimal points to some insane degree that just being silly. 

The question for the thread should be will anything get 98 or join those three games.
