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.


I agree with this.
After things score above 90%+, I honestly dont care.
Does it matter if its 94? or 97?

GoW was amasing, and RDR2 is overrated imo.
I love jrpgs even ones that reviewers would give like 70's....
Honestly dont give too f***s about what reviewers/clickbaits/fanboyism determines is higher rated, by a few %.

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

Well you can't spell ignorance without IGN.



Who knows what a tiny group of strangers on the internet are going to do in the future? Really, why would anyone even care?



Last of Us 2 and Cyberpunk 2077 objectively has the best chance given the track record of the developers. But beyond those games you have the usual bunch that receives raving reviews from critics; GTA 6, ES6, Next Mario 3D, Next Zelda, and Red Dead 3?



don't know don't care

No, because Jim Sterling.

^This, that fat piece of shit.

He doesn't do reviews anymore and as much as I love Breath of the Wild, I'm not mad at him for liking it less than most. I really can't get behind hating a reviewer or a review outlet just because they give a "low" score to a game I love (provided the reasoning behind it makes sense of course). 



Signature goes here!

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.

Gunplay was fun,fast travel is a decision design so that you camp a lot and fell like outlaw travelling and care for your horse and they have succeed at it

The Game Have a lot of amazing things that makes you ignore it's negative,also This Game from what i have seen it's not for everyone,you need to play it slow to get the experience 



Maybe

Hard cause:
- click bait reviewers
- more reviewers
- fanboy reviewers
- more reviewers from countries other than USA meaning they use the full scale (i.e. a 5 is a pass, in USA 7 is a pass)

The gunplay is completely brainless, probably the worst thing in the game, it's astonishing that a triple A release can get away with it in 2018. I like to do that sometimes but I also want to get to where I need to go at a decent pace. Which also brings up the point that moving around the world isn't particularly enjoyable either, with the crappy horse controls.

The game has a lot of fantastic things in it but they do not overcome the massive flaws with the game. I can see this game being re evaluated a lot in the future, it's already begun.

I couldn't say it better, you really went straight to the point :P

 Fallout4 "only" got an 87 on Meta, but I loved it, one of my most favourite game of this generation(very unpopular statement :D)  

 Metacritic just gives me an indication, then I have to try by myself, sorry if I say the obvious.
