Whether the gaming community (hardcore at least) likes it or not, Metacritic has changed gaming in profound ways. Developers now use Metascores as a benchmark for measuring the success of a game and in some instances peg staff bonuses to achieving a high enough Metascore. But we aren't interested in the Metascores that the developers are aiming for. What really matters is the Metascore a gamer is willing to accept and still buy the game.
