Hello friends,

So i was researching about some metacritic that many sony fans and even console gamers use to justify game good or bad. I observe something and metacritic score for sony games have lower score than similar games. I mean lets take a look at this

https://www.metacritic.com/game/playstation-4/marvels-spider-man

Sony's Spiderman is 87 on meta on other hand

https://www.metacritic.com/game/playstation-3/batman-arkham-city

Arkham city is 96 on meta, even go further

https://www.metacritic.com/game/playstation-4/batman-arkham-knight

Arkham knight is consider worst in main trilogy and disappointing one still have better metacritic than sony spiderman.

lets take another one

https://www.metacritic.com/game/playstation-4/ghost-of-tsushima

Ghost score 83 on meta but a game its inspired by is

https://www.metacritic.com/game/playstation-3/assassins-creed-ii

AC2 score 91 on meta, and Ghost is just sony's Assasins creed with shiny graphics.

and last but not least

https://www.metacritic.com/game/playstation-4/the-last-of-us-part-ii

A game 10000 awards score 93 and dont get me on user score lol.

https://www.metacritic.com/game/playstation-2/resident-evil-4

A similar game RE4 got 96%. a higher on meta.

My friend, my point is not to hurt any gamer or fans as they are all respected but the point is why do they use metacritic when thier games score lower than thier alternate multiplat titles that released years before?

that is just my research friends. what do you think? is it accurate? lets discuss.

my friend, we are discussing metacritic. the overhype sony spiderman is less than even arkham knight. that akward moment.

the GOTY nominate ghost is 83 on meta. less than Hitman 3, and is even less than a game its complete rip off AC.

Its simple cows will use whatever site scores their games the highest, and if they can't use scores, they jump to sales.

Cows are hypocrites, nothing more to say really.

Standards change over time and, games are reviewed by way more people these days.

---

Ex. RE4 has 38 reviews. TLOU2 has 54 perfect scores on Metacritic.

Ex. RE4's shooting mechanics is garbage by today's standards.

@davillain-: You know im all for putting shit on cows, but now that i think about it, mods let the bandodger stay here and now you won't lock his thread as its a blatant attack on cows, and it SW not fanboy wars.

And my thread was locked because i used mannerisms from him, even though it was about an actual game that was being criticised.

Hmmm interesting.

Excellent thread my friend. Exposing hypocrisy of the corrupt mainstream illuminati.

Though the real question is why would any avid gamer care about scores at all? A numerical representation of how much another person liked a game. Nothing special about said person. They're not some trained critic. Not a professional. No more qualified to judge a game than you are. These scores are useless.

Then looking at Metacritic, it's just an arbitrarily weighted aggregate of those useless scores.

People put so much weight on scores, somehow easily forgetting that people like this...

Stupid. But gamers are conditioned into an all or nothing mentality where perceived status, confirmation bias etc... becomes more important than the reality and arguably in some cases the game itself.

IGN wielded this shit like a nuclear bomb. Combining it was attractive looking ladies pretending to be your internet freind coupled POP CULTURE.

It's a right barrel of monkeys.

I'm swimming in tears right now. Clearly no research was done by the thread creator, which is weird considering all the time they must have on their hands since they're obviously not playing anything on their Xbox 🤣😂🤣.

i get what your saying, good point. Sony exclusives tend to be overhyped, especially if we are looking at just metacritic.

Standards change. 80+ on metacritic is considered pretty dam good. Sony also has many first party games that are 90+ including Tlou 1 and 2 Uncharted 2, 3 and 4, Bloodborne, God of War and Demon Souls.

Fans in general are hypocrites and flip flop based on what the situation is. Nintendo fans didn't care about sales during the GameCube and Wii U era, the exclusive scores mattered. Now for the Switch, sales matter again. Sales mattered to Xbox fans during the 360 era along with exclusives, now that doesn't matter anymore, it's all about services. During the PS3 era, exclusives and game scores didn't matter as much along with sales. During the PS2 and now the PS4 era, that's all they talk(ed) about.

@i_p_daily said:So the mods still haven't locked this, i guess fanboy wars are allowed now, cool im going to make a thread soon since it won't be locked 😁

So you have to understand that mods usually ban what offends them personally. Plenty of people have fanboy wars on this site, yet I talk crap about Steam fans in an Epic vs Steam thread and I get suspended. I've also been on other forums where biased mods delete threads that they don't like. Even my sister even talked to me about biased mods on a gossip forum that she frequents. She said "mods have too much power. They always ban things and say 'your comment was against the rules'. That is a load of crap, THEY personally just didn't like what the comment said."

Sony fannies are just insecure, looking for justification where ever they can get it. Hypocrisy is one of their major traits.

Having the weaker system is causing many sleepless nights for them.

Right now 12 Xbox Game Studios games outscored Ghost of Turdshima this past gen

This means Xbox has at least 12 studios that are superior to Sucker Poo

5 Studios better than Insomniac etc

Sony is finished....

Threads about fanboys are not allowed from what i know, mods lock them and say THIS IS SYSTEM WARS NOT FANBOY WARS, and yet the mods are letting this one go.

You seem to be somewhat right, but they don't lock what offends them, more like the lock threads made by certain individuals. In other words there's favouritism going on.

Now of course a mod will come in and say its BS, but the proof that this thread isn't locked proves otherwise LOL.

Shhhh hush, it'll be OK....I'm sorry that most Playstation studios underperform on Metacritic, but it'll be fine, I'm sure Naughty Dog will deliver another game in 5 years from now.

Ghost score 83 on meta but a game its inspired by is

My friend, my point is not to hurt any gamer or fans as they are all respected but the point is why do they use metacritic when thier games score lower than thier alternate multiplat titles that released years before?

that is just my research friends. what do you think? is it accurate? lets discuss.
