Forums - Gaming Discussion - Your favourite game with a Meta below 75, and why

Haven't given this too much thought, but there's an indie game that's highly inspired by Binding of Isaac called "Our Darker Purpose" which I absolutely love, and have put almost 100 hours in. Metacritic is 74.

I also really loved Lost Kingdoms and Lost Kingdoms II for GCN (the latter got a 68%).

Around the Network

Started hunting around my top rated games on my GameFAQs list. Among my 5/5 star games, I found Super Mario All-Stars 25th Anniversary Edition and Super Smash Bros. (N64).

Super Mario All-Stars has a 70 on Metacritic. Mostly because it is no different than the Super Nintendo version. But it is still a collection of some of the best platformers ever made, so that is bullshit.

Super Smash Bros. (N64) has a 79 on Metacritic. Mostly because there are only 11 reviews, and someone named Electric Playground only gave it a 20/100. So really just a bullshit aggregate.

Baten Kaitos Origins is my favorite game of all time and it's only rated 75. Deserves much higher.

Recore. was the reason for me to buy a Xbox One.
63 in Metacritic. 75 for me. The Definitive edition deserve 80 in mi opinion.
Great control,exploration and ideas (some not very well executed) is the closer we had to a 3rd Person Metroid game.
with better engine and budget a secuel will be great.

Sorry for my bad english

The Legend of Dragoon (meta 74). To this day it's my second favourite game ever made so this one's a very easy choice for me.

I had a different game in mind, but when seeing that LOD was only a 74 this takes the cake. One of the best RPGs ever made. How does this just have a 74

End of 2009 Predictions (Set, January 1st 2009)

Wii- 72 million   3rd Year Peak, better slate of releases

360- 37 million   Should trend down slightly after 3rd year peak

PS3- 29 million  Sales should pick up next year, 3rd year peak and price cut

Not going to exactly adress how the question in the first post is stated.

Instead I will answer with the game that I enjoy that, as far as I know, is a game with the lowest metacritic score.

And since about a week back it is Hollow for Switch, with a metascore of whooping 36. I actually enjoy the game so much (despite some of its flaws) that I’ve decided that all reviewers are retards and are not to be trusted.

I wish people on this site would stop the dick-measuring contest of metascores with every new hyped game.

The Order: 1886

I really enjoyed the setting and the story. I was disappointed when I completed the game, because I wanted to see more.
