Well let's put scores aside then, and just say that the games generally receive more positively written reviews than negative ones. I mean we can say Meta isn't always the best way to judge games, and I'd agree with that even, but if the general consensus of reviewers isn't what we want to use to determine whether or not a game is objectively leaning towards low or high quality, what do we want to use? We just pick and choose, who's right, and who's wrong?

I think we just have to keep objectivity entirely out of the equation. 

Metacritic is a fine way to measure the critical consensus, but it's a poor way to judge objective greatness. Each individual score carries with it the weight of an individual's gaming predilections.

If we're talking about greatness, sure. That tends to be far more subjective. I'm simply talking about quality. It's pretty easy to say whether or not something is quality. At least I tend to think so. There are lots of things I don't like for various reasons, but I can still say with confidence that many of them are quality products.
