Yeah, i don't consider that score low. I consider it slightly above average.

Not even slightly above average. By that metric, most games are complete duds.

Is 81 really that low for a game?

81 is worse than Bravely Default. So yes, that's a low score.

How does being lower then a very well received and reviewed Jrpg that even got a sequel, somehow mean that 81 is a low score?

80-90 = very good

70-80 = good

50-70 = average



81 is not a low score. I expect the game to be like the others.

Exactly, if an 81 is a low or "slightly above average" score, then 95+% of games are complete duds even some of the best games around.

These people clearly don't know what "low" or "slightly above average" is.

Ideally, a totally average game should get a 50, meaning that it got 50% of everything right and 50% of everything wrong. Unfortunately, nowadays the average seems to be 60-70. Still, 81 is well above average.

I'd say a 60 is hovering around average since it's below the norm for games on MC while 50s and below is below average.

Reason I say 50s is below average is because, by that metric, Transformers: the Last Knight has a barely average score on IMDb despite the fact that pretty much everyone says it's garbage and one of, if not THE worst movie of 2017.



You shouldn’t cancel a game you’re excited about because of metacritic. Though to be fair, I think you should never make preorders anyway, unless it’s something you need to play despite the quality.

Still relevant:

 

Dont blame gamers, blame reviewers. Back in the early 00's (late 90s) my unofficial cuttoff (for lack of MC) was about 80 based on eyeballing scores from various magazines. Back then reviewers were a lot tougher on games. Nowadays reviewers give high scores like candy and so my cutoff has been moved to 85.

So you never played games like Legend of Dragoon, Bloody Roar, Shinobi, Dino Crisis, Jade Cocoon, Rival Schools, Legend of Legaia, Parasite Eve 2, Tomb raider 3, Lunar Silvar Star story complete, Tenchu 2, Fable 3, Unreal Championship, Devil May Cry 2 or 3, Baten Kaitos, Knockout Kings 2001, Valkyrie Profile, Need for speed Underground, Motorstorm, Darksiders 1 & 2, Shenmue 2,  InFamous 2 or inFamous Second son, Tekken 6, TTT2, Midnight Club 3, Baldurs Gate: Dark Alliance, Just Cause, Mirrors Edge, Saints Row Resident Evil Code Veronica, Lost Odyssey, Xenosaga series, Crackdown, Alan Wake, Def Jam 1 or 2,  Resident Evil 0, Luigis Mansion, Dead to Rights, Super Smash Bros 1 etc.....plus lots more games because they ALL fall below your meta criteria.....really?

Wow that is crazy my friend......you are really missing out on some great games then.

How is that low? It's about the same as every other big name game the last 2 years. I doubt it'll effect anything, The reviews and score peaked my interest but I'm still not buying it even though it looks really good. Most people don't care about metacritic and are smart enough to know it's a shame site people basically use for fun now rather than any real advisory purchases.



 

Pathetic
