On September 6, Baldur’s Gate 3 made its debut on the PlayStation 5, and in no time, it achieved two remarkable feats. The game now proudly occupies the number one spot on Metacritic’s list of the best PS5 games of all time, boasting an impressive Metascore of 97. This score surpasses its initial rating on the PC, which was received just over a month ago.
What’s even more astonishing is that Baldur’s Gate 3 has outperformed Elden Ring, the renowned action RPG from FromSoftware, which held a Metascore of 96.
Notable titles like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, God of War: Ragnarok, Hades, Resident Evil 4 Remake, and many others also feature on this prestigious list. Clearly, Baldur’s Gate 3 is a strong contender for the coveted title of Game of the Year in 2023.
