How close is Metacritic's scores to your feelings of your favorite series?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - How close is Metacritic's scores to your feelings of your favorite series?

This just shows that people need to not over-react when their favorite NEW game is getting lower scores than they want.

Let's see what people think a few months, let alone years from now Horizons 88-87-86 or whatever it falls at score. Most likely at that point they will agree.

Everything new always seems cooler than it is. It's fresh, its new, it's exciting, ect. Once that initial euphoria wears off you can better judge something.

Meta means nothing to me. I don't let a number decide for me. I truly feel using numbers to review a game is silly and doesn't make a lot of sense. Thing is people don't read reviews just look at the number. You can't just us e a number to compare one art form to a totally different work of art but people do it even tho it makes no damn sense.

If I am having fun that's all I need to know. It's possible to have more fun with a game that got a 60 meta more than one that got a 90. So meh dumb system.

That's why I prefer a review that uses qualitative words instead of a number. Gamexplain review is a good example of that.



Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

Pokémon is probably my favorite series (maybe Zelda too, but it's hard to compare whole franchises).

Yellow: N/A - 74
Emerald: 76 - 96
Platinum: 83 - 84
Soulsilver: 87 - 92
White: 87 - 82
Black 2: 80 - 85
X: 87 - 91
Moon: 87 - 87

(First score is the metacritic, second is personal)

So, my score is not the same as the Metascore, but the differences aren't too big (except for Emerald, but that's probably due to nostalgia - it was my first real game).

I figured games with a TON of entries would probably not match up exactly. Still pretty close though, with that many titles is impressive.

It varies, some are pretty good while others get like 70s when I really had fun with them

Pokemon is my favourite series too.

It's interesting how no one game in the series is the clear best one(gold/silver has a good case though)Each person has a different game they regard as the best. People opinions vary for this series more than any other.

My ranking:

(First Metascore, then my score)

Emerald: 76 -->88

Platinum:83 -->93

Soulsilver:87 -->90

White:87 -->87

White 2: 80-->89

X: 87-->80

Moon: 87-->92

 

I may or may not be biased towards Platinum since it was my first game.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Actually, Metacritic scores are waaaaay off my favorite games.
