GTA5 and The Last of Us Dominate Metacritic in 2013, One PS4 Game in top 20, None for Xbox One

With the end of the year drawing near, the top 20 for Metacritic scores is basically set in stone, and it's time to give a look at what games came on top according to the critics selected by the popular (and often controversial when abused) score aggregation portal.

Here's the full top 20. (3DS, Grand Theft Auto V, iPad, iPhone, PS3, PS4, The Last Of Us, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Let's not mention 3D World.
R00bot  +   621d ago
No, to mention that the Wii U has 4 games in the metacritic top 20 would be blasphemy on N4G.

This is reoccuring story.

Of MS exclusives constantly lacking compared to other platforms.

Now with Bungie and Epic gone, their already weakest studio line up get weaker.

nobody cares about the wii u lol
starfox079  +   620d ago
Things can only get worse for ps4 for xbox1 as wiiu has games coming that will obliterate that top 20.....
NeoTribe  +   620d ago
Lol wii u....funny. wouldnt matter if all 20 were wii u. Nobody i know has or even remotely wants one. Were talking about gaming consoles here.
R00bot  +   620d ago
Wow, people on here really hate the Wii U.
That, or they don't understand sarcasm.
SilentNegotiator  +   620d ago
You guys are upset that they listed the top 2 games in the title and not the 3rd? Really?

Want them to list out the entire list of 20 games in the title of the article?

What does the demand for the Wii U have to do with the scores the games got?

Super Mario 3D World would have the same score no matter how many of your friends want it.
R00bot  +   620d ago
No, Silentnegotiatior. The title says "one PS4 gmae in top 20, none for Xbox One" but doesn't acknowledge that the Wii U has 4 games in the top 20.
SilentNegotiator  +   619d ago

So how is having 4 titles on a one year old device more significant than a brand new device having a game in the top 20 and the direct competitor not?

If you want to shape the story to shower your favorite system with love, start writing articles yourself. Maybe WiiUDaily has openings.

Flower..ok not saying its bad, just not the game I was expecting for PS4. I dont want to offend any Flower fans!
Stringerbell  +   621d ago
Beware the flower power.
LonnYTonnY  +   620d ago
Christopher  +   621d ago
Well, Flower did come from the PS3, so it's not really a testament to the power of PS4 as a port. It's more an emotional game than anything, though.
raresteak  +   620d ago
I'm guessing we'll see quite a number of 90s for PS4 in 2014.
ltachiUchiha  +   621d ago
Sony has always been about quality over quantity when it comes to dishing out awesome games.
Why o why  +   621d ago
They've proved they can do both.....
Angerfist  +   621d ago
That List is hilarious, there are IOS Games all over the place
indysurfn  +   620d ago
yeah I have a buddy that loves fishing games so when I saw #12 on IOS I looked it up. It looks like boboo! The graphics look like ATARI! Seriously. It better have game play more addictive then 4elements, Mario, pac man etc to be in the top 20 of all platforms because the graphics look like crap.
ainsleyharriott  +   620d ago
Graphics =/= Gameplay
Moncole  +   621d ago
I think its unfair to list games that were rereleased on different systeks on this list.
Gabenbrah  +   621d ago
Flower is a PS3 game...
GentlemenRUs  +   621d ago
Which was ported to PS4... I loved it!

Some people don't even have emotions...

No, it's a PlayStation game.

It's on PS4, PS3 and Vita. PS4 version has significant visual improvements, including resolution and frame rate, making it the definitive version.

Come on tough guy, grab yourself a copy - you'll love it! ;P
Gabenbrah  +   620d ago
It was alright, I much preferred Journey.
G20WLY  +   620d ago
I preferred Journey too! But both were cool and unlike anything else.

I like games that feel like fresher territory, they make a nice change.
c31647  +   621d ago
Amazon for the U.S. has ps4 in stock
SoulSercher620  +   621d ago
Both The Last of Us and GTA V deserve their scores. Fantastic games.
iWishTifaWasReal  +   621d ago
the reason why its second cuz some dumbass site *cough POLYGON" rated it a 75. smh
raresteak  +   620d ago
If Polygon rated it 100 it'll have a Metascore of no more than 96.

Your logic is broken.
Beastforlifenoob  +   619d ago
GTA sucks
"drive here do dis"
-Foxtrot  +   621d ago
"Skylanders Swap Force" - 92

REALLY....for a crappy looking game which to parents is a massive scam. The whole thing is worse then DLC.

I know it's for kids but come on, it's like £12.99 for a pack or two, hell some characters are by themselves.

Especially when other games which came out this year were better then it. Rayman...Flower...LEGEND OF ZELDA...come on
Belking  +   621d ago
I knew rockstar would easily take any game released this year. They are the simply the best out there. GOTY now for two different games. No other dev can say that.
R00bot  +   621d ago
Nintendo and Sony can both say that.
Sevir  +   621d ago
Sony can say that, with God of War, Uncharted, LBP and Journey all getting Those accolades. They can say it and they have repeatedly, as well as Ninty!
_QQ_  +   620d ago
Sony is a publisher not a developer(well they made knack...)
Gamingcapacity  +   620d ago
Actually Sony develops and publish games. They own quite a few developing studios. Guerilla, Naughty Dog, Santa Monico, Sucker Punch etc are all under Sony.
CuddlyREDRUM  +   621d ago
Even Rockstar broken games are loved by critics.
majiebeast  +   620d ago
Yeah thats why they didnt ship the mp with the game.
_QQ_  +   620d ago
how about for the gen?

BlakHavoc  +   620d ago
Call me crazy but I thought both TLOU and Tomb Raider were better than GTAV. Don't get me wrong, it was a great game, but a lot of the same stuff were use to seeing in GTA. And it seems like no matter what they do to the game, I eventually abandon the missions and start running around bitch slapping cops till I get bored lol.
Wintersun616  +   620d ago
Ni No Kuni should've been up there instead of some iOS games.

Flower is a PS3 port, that doesn't really count.
Beastforlifenoob  +   619d ago
also windwaker HD but none complaining
jaymart2k  +   620d ago
Also the headline just screams Playstation fanboy.
