It seems that Elden Ring, which is considered to be the Game of the Year this year, will have a strong rival. Stray overtook the PC and PS5 versions of Elden Ring on Metacritic with a higher score. The production, which left God of War behind in the past days, continues on its way by overthrowing the giants.
Stray also left Elden Ring behind after God of War
Of course, we should underline how different the games are rather than getting stuck with the scores. It wouldn’t be right to compare Elden Ring, which makes players cry with its huge open world and brutal enemies, and Stray, which is a relatively easy game with a more linear storytelling focus in its small world. However, Elden Ring’s PS5 version still scores 8.0 on Metacritic, while Stray leads with 8.8 points. The PC version of From Software’s game has a much lower score, with a score of 7.0.
Of course, let’s also mention that the point we are considering here is player ratings. On the press side, Stray has 83 points, while Elden Ring is ahead with 94 points.
Whatever the case, we think that the cat is not the reason why players embrace this game we play as a cat. Except for the series that are standardized almost every year, the excitement of seeing an extraordinary production seems to have affected everyone. Stray’s success will also lead to the emergence of a wide variety of genres.
