Funny how metacritic is treated as useless and useful at the same time by fans.
I've heard many fans on this site claim there is a bias against Sony when The Order only reached 65%.
Anyway, remove all the cross-gen games and late ports/remasters and you get a different story. You could play most of the games you listed on a PS3.
People clearly don't base their opinion of metacritic. Reviewing games isn't exact science lol! Do you enjoy a game more just because the score is high on metacritic? I think DKC: TF is much better than Bayonetta 2, but metacritic says otherwise! Yeah, I'm going to follow my own feelings instead of relying on metacritic.
The Wii U list also includes cross-gen games and late ports. Games are games. Removing cross-gen titles means removing almost all 3rd party titles (all on PS4, almost none on the Wii U), so it isn't a fair comparison.
Including all these games, PS4 is ahead in the following metrics: higher meta, higher sales, GOTY awards, more games. The only "metric" we can't talk about is the personal preference, which is fairly unreliable.
You're funny, that's the only reliable metric.
Game companies buy all the ad space of review sites the day the review embargo ends. There's clearly a clash of interests going on here, so that makes review scores unreliable. You don't genuinly believe GTA gets those review scores fair and square do you?
GOTY awards are again determined by the same gaming "journalism". Do these "journalists" even have a degree in journalism or a Master degree at university?
More games? That's true. Most are cross-gen though. PS4 will win this year easily because most third party games will not be cross-gen. That wasn't the case in its first year.
As for personal preference. If you like Nintendo games a lot you vote Wii U, if you don't then you vote PS4. As it should be.
This year the PS4 will win though because of Uncharted 4, The Witcher 3, Batman: Arkham Knight, BloodBorne, Persona 5, Ratchet & Clank, Tearaway Unfolded, etc.
Nintendo is great, but only one company after all. One that has to support two consoles.
