Thread title and OP updated.
The score went up to 85 on Metacritic and is close to 87% on GameRankings.

I'm wondering why more sources don't rely more on GameRankings, they have a very strict vetting process for game reviews and I've looked to them more than Metacritic.





After watching the Danny O'Dwyer review, I think I get it why and how it can be boring yet for some still a masterpiece.

I think he nails it by using the word pilgrimage in his description and review. I'll leave the link if anyone wants to watch it.

Whoever said life to be like a box of chocolates clearly didn't know what he was talking about. 

Life is more like a game of bumper cars. At every turn there is a possibility you will get screwed.

Some reviews makes it sound like this is the video-game equivalent of Andy Warhol's movie Sleep.

36 hours. I'm surprised my Ps4 isn't pregnant.

Yes let`s complain about people discussing the review of the game and its grade on a thread dedicated to it.

Even more for a game we don`t care about and won`t play.

I dont understand what you are trying to say, are you directing that at me or just in general?

I quoted you, so yes it is about you.

You have entered several Metacritics of Sony games to first say that metascore doesn't mater, them to defend the bad scores some reviewers give (and say they aren't baiting for clicks or trolling the game), and also complain about people caring about the scores.

If not on a metacritic discussion of the game where else would be the place for people to discuss the reviews and scores the game receive? And why someone that doesn`t care about both scores and Sony exclusives would be in all these threads making basically similar comments in all of them?

How so? It's a natural process and a pretty standard outcome of sexual excitment. Gross or not, I'm going to need to clean under the hood every shower until this game is in my hands to avoid any smegma build up.

What are you on about.. Discussing metacritic is fine but whinging that a game did not achieve masterpiece levels of praise is not, especally since no one has played the game yet, but expect to see 11/10s because its there favourite brand.

Do you disagree with me saying that gamers wont be happy unless there game is in the 90s and GOTY contender? Simple yes or no will do.

No need to derail this thread into some personal attack. I believe what i stated was quite fair and reasonable.

First, you are the one derailing the thread. And you got warn in two metacritics thread in the past for doing the same behavior.

Second, gamers will be happy, Horizon Zero Dawn and Spider-Man both got under 90 and people loved the games.

Third, people aren't displeased the game is sub 90 (a lot even said they expected the game to be under 90, I have guessed 85). We are talking and complaining about reviewers giving this game a 3,5 or even a 6,0 score that from what we know so far is very far from representing the quality of the game (even if we didn't play the game we have knowledge about kojima games in general and also have seem some review videos).

Forth, I haven't done a single personal attack to you, no name calling or anything, I have described what you have done in this thread and other metacritic ones for Sony games.

Fifth, please again, say where else are people supposed to discuss the scores and reviews of this game.

Sixth, are you really interested in Death Stranding and planning to purchase it?
