These earlier games surpass it. Other games after it will too.
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...
