  1. Over reliance on the Batmobile? I don't get why this is a thing. I've played AK all the way through and didn't think so. Sure the fighting was extremely simple when you did use it, but in no way did they overly rely on those sequences. People love to nitpick I guess. I thought Arkham Knight was amazing and arguably had the best story of any Arkham game.

  2. They literally praise GTA IV highly throughout the entire segment that it's involved in. Why the fuck is there so many comments saying how great of a game it was? That hasn't been disputed. What was disputed was that over-bloated score, which I agree was too high.

  3. Gta 4 really wasnt as amazing as people remember…. I could never finish the story because of some bullshitty weird missions with the way the game mechanics work and it got very boring at times. 98 is like as high as it gets on metacritic and there are much better games than GTA 4. I would put GTA 5 above it, like make 4 a 90 and 5 a 95 and that seems more accurate. Gta 5 actually pulled me in to want to play the lengthy story and i REALLY liked having 3 different protagonists. Never cared about any of the gta multiplayer in any of the games.

  4. What a stupid video,bashing games that actually made an effort,why not just make a video ranking all the yearly fifa,wwe,nba…… that are full price add on’s & possibly worse than loot boxes.

  5. I'd have put MGSV on here personally, repetitive missions, a second half that consists of replaying earlier levels which between that and the way the game suddenly ends confirms it was shipped unfinished, the overall weak story and forgettable characters from a series that is beloved for its story and characters, yet it sits at a 93 on Metacritic. Somewhere between 75-85 seems like it would be more fitting.

  6. It would be interesting to see how far Breath of the Wild's Metascore would fall if it was essentially the same game, but a new IP instead. I think it's a great game, but for me, it's definitely not a 10/10 (there were too many instances that bored me or tested my patience that I couldn't ignore). I wouldn't put it in my top 5 Zelda games. It seems the franchise has become so deified now that reviewers automatically give it 10/10s just because it's Zelda and they think that's what they're supposed to do.
