Locked: What games can surpass RDR2 and BotW as the highest rated current generation game?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - What games can surpass RDR2 and BotW as the highest rated current generation game?

Why am I not surprised this turned into a debate over which game really has the highest score.

Anyway, it would need to be something with enough mass appeal to win over virtually every critic, while simultaneously not just being a copy of a previous game. Out of any currently announced games, my first thought would be Last of Us 2, followed by Metroid Prime 4 and maybe Elder Scrolls 6 as a dark horse candidate. In the not so immediate future, GTA6, the next 3D Zelda, and the next 3D Mario are all decent candidates, although I'm not convinced any of those will end up releasing on current gen hardware.

Rdr2 deserves to be the highest rated game. Gta 6 and tlou2 have a chance but TLOU2 being exclusive to a playstation console will cost it a few points I feel.



Metroid 4 or a new Mario Galaxy game for switch... But I doubt it

LOL, looks like RDR2 already got surpassed by games that came out before it.  Also if you look at user reviews both BotW and Mario Odyssey are higher.  RDR2 is not the highest rated game.

Maybe the OP meant to say, "What games can surpass RDR2 as the most OVERRATED game?"

That list is from Gamerankings not Metacritic, which also has more reviews than Gamerankings. 

And saying that RDR2 is overrated is not a valid argument unless you also want to apply it to Zelda and Mario games.

- Single-player Game

Cyberpunk 2077

Metroid Prime 4

Mario Odyssey 2 (if it exist)

The next 3D Zelda

Last of Us Part 2

I can see all of these games reaching a 97 on Metacritic.

But that is not from Metacritic, but from Gamerankings. Metacritic also has more reviews. Was that a "stealthy" attempt to spread disinformation? I remember that during RDR2 launch you also had some "problems" accepting the fact that RDR2 is the highest rated game of this generation. 

Breath of the Wild has more reviews than RDR2 on MC, 12 more in fact.  If you are going to compare decimals without even using the equal amount of reviews for both games, as well as discredit other review sites such as game rankings...

 

Well it becomes an obvious attempt to try to discredit two other games that hold the same score on metacritic rather than a celebration of having three 97s within two years.

 

Also food for thought, RDR2 did not win GotY 2018 but God of War did (a 94 on metacritic), which would suggest that it is the better game (making that 97 for RDR2 kinda meaningless).  Furthermore one of the other 97s (BotW) DID win GotY during its respective launch year.  By claiming RDR2 is the most acclaimed game of the generation, then cherry picking facts that support you while ignoring all the facts that go against you, it only hurts the credibility of your argument.

 

Also I am curious, if MC is the end all, be all for critical acclamation, are you also suggesting that Ocarina of Time is better than RDR2?  I mean it is from a different generation and milestones were different then, but if the number is all that matters...

All of Red Dead Redemption II,breath of the wild and Super mario at 97 and i don't think it matter what's top The other since maybe all of them deserve theirs score(i only played RDR2)
Only next 3d Zelda Game and 3d super mario Game will Get 97 
As for GTA6 no way ut will release for this Gen,but i think it will do it next Gen
If there's Bully 2 this Gen it may get 94-95 but who knows 
(Sorry for my bad english)

Red Dead Redemption 2 is the highest rated current generation (PS4, Xbox One, Switch) game on Metacritic. What game/games (announced or games that you think will be announced in the future) do you think has the potential to surpass its Metacritic score?

Huh? Breath of the Wild, GTA V and Super Mario Odyssey have all a Meta of 97 like RDR 2. So maybe not surpassing, but quite some games (from two companies) are sharing the title.

The OP clearly said "on Metacritic", where RDR2 XOne is the highest rated current generation game. 

Not sure the point of the thread is to talk about "Yeah but on another website...". And let's not talk about user reviews, we all know it's worthless trash.

(and no, I don't care about RDR2!) 

But RDR2 isn't even the highest rated on Metacritic. GTA V obviously is rated higher: https://www.metacritic.com/browse/games/score/metascore/all/ps4/filtered?sort=desc

LOL there a three games at 97 from this ge. I checked Metacritic..

So in reality I cannot see a new game getting a 98. At best they may match the three.

Maybe TLOU2 wil get there. Not sure about Metroid 4 as well we don't know much about it atm. GTA6 don't think so as too much hate for simulator real world violence lol.
