Yeah right Aaron.

They just have really low expectations.

Probably! Look at "most played" charts on MS Store. Sea Of Thieves at 32nd place, State Of Decay 2 nowhere to be seen.

Leave the poor guy alone.
He tries so hard for so little.

I'm watching Pearl Harbor and thinking of the Team America song. Cuba shoulda had a bigger role, man.

Metacritic user scores in the 5's for both these games. Guess they didn't exceed the GAMERS' expectations. You'd think they'd refrain from bragging with scores like that.

You take MC user scores seriously?

crazyCoconuts404d ago

Ok, so the critic reviews in the high 60's. I think it's fair to say they weren't exceeding most people's expectations, wouldn't you agree?

Yeah ... I'll stick with Amazon and MS Storefront reviews from actual purchasers.
Not saying Metacritic user reviews are skewed or anything. Just that they're cancer.

Lon3wolf404d ago (Edited 404d ago )

Well exceeding expectations in this case appears to be user base/count rather than review scores, as for my expectations for these titles I never had that much in the fact I'm not picking either of them up (well maybe SoD2 on sale and on PC).

You talk like I game on a certain console, only one brainless person here following the trend and it's not me as I play on all consoles but mainly on PC.

Right Microsoft, since metacritic is telling you otherwise. Aaron as usual is a classic.

Kribwalker404d ago

what does metacritic scores have to do with the games getting a large player base? Oh yeah, nothing.

XiNatsuDragnel404d ago

I'm saying that SoT was very dry at launch.

SoD 2 was very buggy. Most people on Metacritic agreed on that.

I just don't want Microsoft to think it's okay releasing half baked products.

Metacritic scores reflected the issues at launch .

MS is just saying this to get more people to buy in. Metacritic is the truth.
