The Best PS5 Games According to Metacritic

The release of Baldur’s Gate 3 on PC received high praise from both fans and critics, earning a score of 96 on Metacritic. Now, the game has made its way to PlayStation 5, and it has managed to surpass its previous score. With an impressive average of 97, Baldur’s Gate 3 has become the best-reviewed game on the platform in almost three years since the console's launch.

Previously, this honor belonged to Elden Ring, an open-world action role-playing game from From Software. Elden Ring still maintains a remarkable score of 96 on Metacritic, but it has been eclipsed by the success of Baldur’s Gate 3. Fans of Miyazaki and From Software have been captivated by the game's formula, which combines an influential and popular style with a mysterious world full of adventure.

The RPG genre has seen a surge in popularity in recent years, and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is no exception. The game, now available in its new gen version, was already highly acclaimed in its initial release and has only improved with time. God of War Ragnarok, with a score of 94, is the first and only first-party game from PlayStation Studios to make it into the top 10 list of best PS5 games according to Metacritic.

The top 10 list, which includes titles such as Hades, Tetris Effect: Connected, Resident Evil 4, Demon's Souls, Street Fighter 6, and Persona 5 Royal, showcases the diverse range of games that have made an impact on the PlayStation 5 platform.

Overall, Baldur’s Gate 3 has taken the gaming community by storm, cementing its position as one of the top-rated games on the PlayStation 5. With its immersive gameplay and captivating storyline, it is no wonder that it has received such high praise from both players and critics alike.
