bold of you to assume that will release  

that's true😉

It will piss on 98  and go straight to 100, I can see your brains ticking over how exactly this will occur, simple by the time it comes out just about every critic will have died from old age, so Square will bet on the last surviving critic's old age and dementia confusing him enough to gain that score, the only way that may backfire is the critic giving 100 to a game he calls George.

Now there is one other scenario and that involves Jim Stirling being as many have suspected part cockroach so in that case the 100 will consist of the score of 20 being multiplied by five episodes.

The last game that got a 98/100 on Metacritic was Grand Theft Auto IV in 2008. Since then, we got Mario Galaxy 2, GTA V, three Uncharted games, Batman: Arkham City, MGS V, Breath of the Wild, Red Dead Redemption 2, and many others, but none of them managed to reach more than a 97/100.

I feel that with the growing amount of critics, the growing desire for clicks from these critics and the technological advances slowing down, no other game will ever reach 98+ on Metacritic, no matter how good it is. I don't even know if that's a bad thing either.

What do you think?

It is highly unlikely we will get a 98/100 anytime soon for all the reasons you listed. But because this an absolutist question, I have to say yes we will. I don't know when or from whom, but at some point in the future course of gaming history we will. Unless there is a world wide economic collapse or the world ends of course.

Wpuldn't be shocked if it happened at some point, like with Super Mario Odyssey 2

I am honestly just suprised we saw three 97s this year. I am gonna vote no, but three 97s in a one year time span prove that anything is possible.

I'm a big GTA fan but GTA 4 was trash.......

It will be extremely unlikely

There are so many reviewers so even 1 reviewer can easily lower the average from 98 to 97, as seen in the past

They need to add an elimination type like... not considering the 10 lowest and highest scores

Yes, when I start making games.

No, cause there is always going to be review sites that give intentionally lower than deserved grades just to be artsy and get clicks.

Unless... Duke Nukem Forever 2 releases. Then there's a chance.
