People on Twitter do no favor for context.I'd be nervous af having metacritic determine my future. Wooof!
Better metascore = more sales.
If Days Gone was a 90+ metascore it should have sold twice what it sold and the sequel was a thing.
It was not... have a lot of bugs at launch that decreased the metascore, sold a bit more than 5 million units and it is not worth investing anymore.
Metascore is not a metric for publishers because they love metascore but because they drive sales... to build a successful franchise you need that... and devs will be rewarded for that.
To give a example how dumb that Twitter is... if Days Gone sold 10+ million it should have 50 metascore that a sequel should be made.
It is easier to archive better sales with better metascore but the destiny of a sequel is based in sales not metascore... metascore have very little influence on that... budget x sales is what drives sequels.
