rankings don’t mean anything. there are probably millions of people playing this game which means you are going to have a lot of people have problems. And they are going to be complaining. Since this is naughty dog, its going to get reported on by youtubers just for the clicks. And then the brigading happens, which is a combination of people with a problem, or people that hated last of us two, or people that feel the game should’ve been 40 bucks.
A score means something and has word-of-mouth value. If 1,000 people say something is terrible, that doesn't make them wrong because they're not the majority. However, with this game, they are the majority. The overwhelming chorus of negativity is ubiquitous online (not just on Steam).
