Yes,everything we needed. One more arbitrary badge that will cause nothing but fights and toxicity on the gaming industry.

10/10 idea, Finale's seal of quality.

I give your comment 1 out of 1 thumbs up! Must-read comment.

I can understand the skepticism from your viewpoint Rol.

Only the 62 of that list is a Switch game. And yes, I'd take that over Dead Cells and Sonic Mania Plus.

Maybe they should add a "Rol doesn't agree." badge. Matter of fact, they should add a thumbs down option just for you to give out here.

Up the bum of course. What else?



So below 90 MC won't be a "must-play", i think this is risky as hell, i mean you know.. a pack of bad stuff messages.

Best of luck for reviewers and game developers.

I disagree with so many Metascores. It's really a shame that nowadays not even a 90+ score is a good indicator for whether or not a game is good.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Nowadays? Was it ever the case?

Yes. I am talking about games that I am interested in, of course.

What do you mean? Reviewers can get rich. This is a business opportunity if I ever saw one.

I disagree with some. Xenoblade 2 is not a 83 imo. Should be higher. But I generally agree with most of it.

As far as Metacritic goes, or other aggregate sites, I think it is a good way to get a first quick impression and it does add some value. However, the best way of course is to listen to the people you trust the most. Be it a website, or blogger, Youtuber or whatever. It should be up to yourself to decide ultimately.

I don't know about this. I hope it's fine for them.
