I think I agree with Mr Spector on this one:

  • The game devs are welcome to come up with their own criteria for success

  • Metacritic scores are misleading to me as a gamer - generally, I'm more likely to enjoy a MC 70% game that's recommended by a friend, than a randomly selected MC 90% game

  • Game publishers have been able to measure critical acclaim for decades - but in the old days they actually had to choose which critics to trust, and read their reviews. Handing this responsibility over to Metacritic - which will happily lump together arstechnica and mysonworksforactiblizzard.com, is not necessarily a step forward
