Interesting list. As I am interested in a bigger picture and also platform wars, I made a count:

PS4: 10
XBox 360: 8
PC: 7
PS3: 7
Switch: 6
Wii: 3
WiiU: 3
Xbox One: 3
3DS: 2
Vita: 1

Actually because xbox can play alot of XB360 games it isnt that badly off.
Also the PS4 has alot of these games even if no metion of PS4 is on it, in the list, it can still play those games.


Like PS4 can also play:
Celest, DQ11, FFXIV, Overwatch, Witcher 3 (blood &wine), ICO & shadow of the collossus, Journey, Divinity OS 2, Undertale, Witcher 3 (wild hunt), SFV,... ect ect.

On that list, its more or less only the Nintendo / xbox made exclusives the PS4 cant play.
So its not just PS4 = 10 games from list.


Out of that top50 list, PS4 can probably play like 35-40 of them.

That's why I think it's also important to make a distinction between studios, owned studios etc. However, Metacritic probably just lists the highest rated version of the same game, so that's how platform comes into play.




I actually like this list, for the most part. Bioshock Infinite is way too high on the list, though.

Persona 5 below Persona 4 is an ugly sight.

Why? Persona 4 is not a bad game in the least.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Because prejudice. I haven't even played Persona 4 to know, but from everything I've seen it looks like a very cringy game at best.

Persona 5 is Persona 5.

P4 was a really good game especially for its time it really built on what P3 brought and is probably the game responsible for providing a good position for P5 to follow on from, It also added a number of features that vastly improved the gameplay for the series.



I'd personally have The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on top but Galaxy 2 is awesome so no biggie.



Signature goes here!

I'm not sure what got you to think Persona 4 looks like a cringy game, from what I've played both games seem quite similar.

Easy to forget that Breath of the Wild held 98 for about two weeks before a couple attention seekers reviewers decided to have the honour of lowering the score.

With Metacritic refusing to eliminate outlier scores from their algorithm, it's practically impossible to get higher than 97. Can't think any game will top the universal praise Breath of the Wild got any time soon.
