I'll say it will be 97 or 98 from gaming industry (Critics).
Let's go with 98.

For gamers (Users) though, I fear it will be close to 80.
Let's go with 81.

Wow your third post in more than half a decade :o

Also, I sincerely don't know why some people think Sony games get treated unfairly. Most of them have great scores.

It's not that they are treated unfairly, is that Sony games will ALWAYS be prone to more criticism, independant of how good they are.

You can see games that win several GOTYs like Uncharted 4, TLoU and GoW just never reach the likes of Rockstar or Mario/Zelda peak scores (97+) even as they get as much recognition from everybody anyway.

(GoW wins lots more GOTYs from the same critics that scored it lesser than RDR2, for example).

You gets reviews dropping TLoU a 6 because when Joel dies his death is not permanent, or U4 a 4 because the game is too beautiful, or GT6 a low score (forget it, think it was 4) because it's not open world.

When it happens to Pokemon for example (too much water) it becomes a widespread meme, but that happens all the with Sony games.

Also you see things like this often in reviews: it's the best game I ever played, 9.4

Sony games are not treated unfairly by most of the critics (they are by some, but that happens) but they are definitely way more scrutinized by most of then.

So even as they can still score amazingly well, it ends up feeling that if it was made by someone else, it could score even better.



88

I'm expecting a 95 Metacritic at this point.



My prediction in 2021.

SW: 30m

PS5 16m

XBS: 7.5m

Naughty Dog doesnt disappoint. And they have had so much time to polish the game.

97



OP updated.
Embargo lifts in 2 days, so set your predictions while you still can!



i'm picking 95, got a good feling about this one dispete all the "negative stuff" on internet.



Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.
