I just want to point out the difference in scores on Uncharted 4. Hey it's a really great game also. But realistically they added nothing to the game play except movable crates.
No one here on GS was saying same old Uncharted, or where is something new? Yet UC4 is rewarded with 10s by the same sources that give Gears 5 (that has added a lot more and doubles in content with huge amounts of actually fun Multi player Modes, and have you seen Digital Foundry?) 7s.
I think at this point most of us have known for years when it comes to GameSpot Reviews, that Xbox games will always get 1 full point knocked off just because. And sadly they are not the only ones. Then there are the outliers that just bomb a game to get more traffic to their site.
Hard to prove, but harder to deny.
