woaah - thats a surprise in my opinion. but..

i dont like the magazine "edge". They often give high quality games only 6-7 points and have sometimes ridiculous (subjective) reasons.

Yeah, EDGE is the "clickbait site" of gaming magazines.

It just means they either didn't have the balls to give RDR2 a low review or R* paid them enough. They've given some absolute classics really low scores.

There's a far greater gap in resolution between PS4 Pro and Xbox One X than there is between the base PS4 and base Xbox One. 

 

You can down play it all you want but it's a vastly superior experience in both resolution AND frame rate on the X1X.

 

I'm new here but you seem to be in EVERY thread down playing Xbox and praising Sony... It's kind of strange how attached you are to the PlayStation brand and the lengths you go to defend it.

"Vastly superior experience". Thanks for the laugh. 

A better way to phrase it would be it's slightly better but not a slightly better experience, just slightly better. It's the same as saying GTA5 was vastly better experience on ps4 than ps3 or vastly better experience Xbox 1 than x360 and having played all but the x1 version I can definetively say even with first person mode and the doubled FPS along with all the improvments it was just slightly better. Not a better experience just slightly better. The x1x version is slightly better to a much smaller degree (MUCH smaller than that example), one that is not noticeable unless you put them side by side. 

 

Again, thank you for the chuckle. 

Top class response. GG.

100% true. 

Graphics have gotten so good that I don't think there's anywhere to go outside of VR/Hologram play. I know we said 20 years ago that some games looked 'photorealistic', but we knew that was just a phrase meaning it imitated life well; nobody actually thought Snake looked like a real person. 

But now? We have Ellie and Joel and Arthur Morgan and Nathan Drake and various other characters that look so close to real that there's not really much of a point in focusing more effort on graphics. All we can do now is work on framerate, performance, optimization, and resolution. Even then, the difference between HD and UHD isn't that much of a difference. Much like the shift from DVD to Blu-Ray, the difference isn't that big. It's there, you can see it, but I wouldn't say that it enhances the experience. 

I'd be happy if we had the PS4/Switch/Xbox One forever but I know that won't happen. Then again, two of my top 5 favorite games this year have been Octopath Traveler and Mega Man 11, so what do I know about graphical fidelity?

Playing the game now. While I enjoy it a LOT, I agree with Gamerankings. MO and BotW are above it still. BotW is still the GotG.

But since Metacritic has more reviews, and RDR2 is above BotW and Mario Odyssey according to Metacritic, it makes RDR2 universally the better game. The score-difference between these games in Gamerankings is also only a couple decimals (0,3-0, 4) so it's not enough to compensate.

 

Everyone of course has his own opinion, but facts are facts.

It's been some time, but I feel this post is relevant so pardon the necro.

Seems new data from Metacritic came out:

Since you were in the decimal game, here's from the people you relied on themselves.
