The game currently has a 9.3 user score on Metacritic -- a score that even the most universally praised blockbusters would struggle to obtain. Based on some data crunching by Forbes, Ghost of Tsushima is actually one of the highest rated titles of the entire console generation -- and the only games that come close are ones that don't have anywhere near as many user reviews.
Indeed, Ghost has a whopping 15,192 user ratings, so the fact that it's managed to maintain such a high score is pretty much unheard of. The game has clearly struck a chord with players, and the user score reflects this.
Wow, congrats to Sony and Sucker Punch for making game lots of people love. I mean, achieving a really high user score for a Sony exclusive can be a challenge. You can have angry fanboys who are jelly trying to down vote it. I have personally played the game and beat it, and I agree, the game deserves great praise.
What do you think, SW? Is this game truly deserving of this score or is it inflated?
