Well to be fair I play it on PC and it's 86 there, but regardless, I'd give it a 90+ personally. That said if it was 84 there is a chance I would have passed on it, but if not, I chalk it up to the fact that it's an extremely unique game of the type that there are no better alternatives for me to play. With a game like Far Cry, it's similar to a bunch of other games (including it's own entries) with better scores so I feel like playing a game under 85 in a genre/style that has many comparable, better games is a waste of time. Rocket League is pretty much the only game I can think of in the past 5 years where it's unique enough to not have alternatives, making the 85 metacritic cutoff less useful, because there's nothing better to compare it to.

Well, that destroys your argument right there, you disagree with the Metascore for that game, so that means there are probably other games that are the same for you.

Well if it was rated 81 though it would have been too bad for me to enjoy. Ultimately it met my MC requirement, and allowed me to enjoy it more than expected.

So, it's not the actual game itself that you base enjoyment on then, it's the score that makes you feel that you should be or shouldn't be enjoying a game.



Used to hate devs paying for good reviews but with people like this who can blame them.

Well could you ever enjoy a game rated 65-70?



Is this a joke thread?

It's stuff like this that makes me hesitant to participate in discussions.

I've enjoyed games rated in the 40s and 50s.



Best lart is that this game fantastic. Best FC to date. Anyone looking at this solely from the pov of the scores need to have their head checked.

Wow that is crazy my friend......you are really missing out on some great games then.

Yeah, I skipped all of that except Baten Kaitos because I got that as a gift (and should have skipped it, my review cutoff would have saved me from that godawful voice acting) 

Wow so you really did/have/still do miss out on some great  games. And to be honest that is fine  it is on you and your personal intrests. I think it sucks but to each his/her own. And about Baten Kaitos you said horrible voice acting but said nothing of the game  itself. How did you feel about the actual game?



The absence of evidence is NOT the evidence of absence...

80 is a low score now?

smh......



F5 is imo the best in the series so far from what I've played I think franchise fatigue may have impacted the score more than any issue in game as it takes elements from previous games and combines them in one package, my only gripe so far is how the main quest missions just activate regardless of what you're doing especially Faith's region as you have no control of when it happens.

80 is not a low score either way it's actually quite high but I feel if franchise fatigue wasn't a factor it would have easily scored higher than previous games.
