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.Last edited by Acevil - on 29 December 2018
