Will we ever get another 98+ game on Metacritic?

Yes 24 47.06%
 
No 27 52.94%
 
Total:51

Considering RDR2 and Breath of the Wild couldn't pull it off, I am doubtful. There are more critics than ever before, and the more critics there are the more troll clickbait low scores you see for any given game.

If Naughty Dog can somehow pull off improving upon the first one- I think The Last of Us: Part II has a good shot of reaching it.



The obvious answer is Hitman 3.



yes, next one will be final fantasy 7 remake🤣🤣

RDR2 Really deserve it

Nah. Bad gunplay, ridiculously repetitive and restrictive missions, poor fast travel options and chapter 5 are enough to drag it down a point or two.

Still, not bad for a game made by what almost counts as slavery.

bold of you to assume that will release  



No. (Some, but not all) critics are plagued with click baits, and in some cases overly nitpicky. "Too much water" - IGN

that's true😉



Like everyone said, troll critics are clickbaiting with bad reviews on popular games. One french website said Smash Ultimate was the GOTY of 2014 because it was just a port of Smash 4 and was basically a scam.

The difference among 95, 96, 97 or 98% on Meta nowdays means nothing as we got the usual "troll/clickbait" reviews for any game; it depends how many troll reviews that specific game receives. It's enough a couple of clickbait crap reviews to lower the score, and these biased and unprofessional magazines always wait the last minute to see how much they should give the Game to lower the score; these people should be banned when this is obvious. Too easy to call their crap ""opinions"", when 95% of reviewers give the game a 9 or 9.5, or 10, and they give a 3/10 or a 4/10, with inconsistent and inconclusive motivations.

So we will ever see another 98% on Meta ? Does it really matter ? ↑ ↑ ↑

Furthermore, there are many other reviewers that might be slighty biased in the other way, giving perfect scores because they are somehow "loyal/biased" to that particular genre/developer. So how to come out from this? Some statistics remove 5-10% of scores from the Top reviews and 5-10% from the bottom for the calculation of the average. That's not my method, but it's like many other statistics on other subjects work, to be more reliable(score). Can it work on Metacritic ? I don't know, maybe this would sound "not diplomatic". My two cents.
