The PS4 made its launch in the North American region on November 13, 2013 and today it stands 923 days old. In all this time hundreds of games have been released to the console, including many original games and a number of remasters. Did you ever check how many of them made it to the 90’s on Metacritic?

Well, we just found out that in these two years, 6 months and 11 days, there have been only five original PS4 games that actually broke the 90 score barrier on the popular review site.

We have listed below the games in question, in descending order, starting from the maximum review score achieved on Metacritic by an original PS4 title:

  1. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End (Review Score 93)
  2. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (Review Score 93)
  3. Bloodborne (Review Score 92)
  4. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (Review Score 92)
  5. Shovel Knight (Review Score 90)

This is pretty surprising to say the least, I for one was expecting more PS4 games than that.

People might want to compare this with what the PlayStation 3 achieved in its seven year life, so here we are with those figures too. The PS3 had a total of 52 original titles that scored above 90 on Metacritic, and although those were in seven years, the ratio is much larger than it is for PS4 now.

While the PS3 pushed out more than seven 90+ games a year (on average) the PS4 is averaging at two.

Of course there have been other releases, like remasters, re-releases and ports on PS4, but those are a different thing. Regardless, there were seven of them namely Grand Theft Auto V (97), The Last of Us Remastered (95), Journey (92), Flower (91), Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition (90), Rayman Legends (90) and Fez (90).

What does this performance of PS4 games on Metacritic tell you?
