And still has a higher meta score than Days Gone.
^ this, has always been my opinion.
That tired narrative is so annoying. If that were the case Kirby Star Allies, Triforce Heros, Federation Force, Star Fox Zero, Paper Mario sticker star, and Color Splash would have gotten a free pass. Mario Tennis would have also scored higher as well.
Not to mention you are comparing two different types of games and scores can't be directly compared anyway. Days Gone was just a sub par game for what it is, and people need to accept that. I have, and I was hyped for it.
