But shouldn't the cut be about games you want or not instead of hitting a minimum threshold? I would understand someone that doesn't know the game looking at sub 80 and deciding to wait, but since you know and is interested I got curious why the 1 or 2 point drop would make this a hold. Look for comments like the ones from CGI to see if the game is one that would get your attention.

Detroit is rated below Heavy Rain on metacritic. Yet, as far as I'm concerned, and that's coming from someone (like CGI) who rated Heavy Rain quite high, Detroit is a much better interactive narrative experience than Heavy Rain. So I really couldn't care less about how high (or low) its aggregate is. 

The style of Quantic Dream comes to maturity in Detroit as far as I'm concerned. 

And I'm eager to try it.

I have too many games already. The backlog is real. I have to cut myself off at some point, or else I'll just wind up buying 50-60 games a year and only really getting through 24-30 of them.

Problem is I want all the games! Well, almost all of them. 80 is my cut-off point, but I'm still interested in games that get 74-79. Sometimes even games that get below that, I"ll want to play just because of the genre, or developer.

I understand, I don't have the problem of wanting all, and certainly if I don't know much about the game I would avoid buying sub 80. I hope when you get it you enjoy.

I can't say I agree with that metacritic score, but whatever. I'm glad the game is getting good recognition through word of mouth. At this point you can say metacritic is completely irrelevant. It won't be that huge seller but that's fine. As long as it succeeds, I'm happy for this game.
