Forums - Gaming Discussion - How will the low Metacritic Effect Far Cry 5 sales?

How is anything in the 80s considered low?

Now say.. 68. Yeah i'd say 68 is low. Although that is only two points away from 70 which I wouldn't consider low. But anywhere in the 60's and below I'd call low.

It is pretty sad to use a metacritic score to determine what games you play. Something hits 84 and suddenly something possibly Goty is unplayable?

Although Apparently two months ago it was "If it's under 82 / 100 I wont look at it. " So you've at least improved 3 points in 2 months..

I can think of probably at least 20 great games I would have missed if I went with such a awkward cut off point.

  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

Can I just report this? This just hurts. 

Edit: Christ this thread is so pointless. 81 is considered bad? lol cancelling a pre-order over a meta, get real. 

Why would you report it? I'm just point out that the game has been advertised and shown as a Christian killing simulator and doesn't have much changes from other Far Cry games so that led to the very low scores which can cause the game to flop. 



Far cry primal got a lower score and was actually an spin off, it still sold great, 81 is not even a low score lol



Imho, lower 80s (80-85) is a good score.
Games under 75 are the one that are low.



Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.

Depends cuz it usually means the game is getting 7/10 or 8/10 reviews most of the time which ain't low by any metric



Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

I don't know about the game, but your title already affected me deeply.



I just played and beated A Way Out (another new game with the same Meta Score) with a friend today and loved it.

I dont believe thats a low score at all, for me low would be below 70.



it doesn't matter, is it a bandwagon mainstream shooter thats advertised online well? yes 

it will sell well.. nuff said.
