The people have spoken: Sonic Frontiers is better than Elden Ring

  • November 15, 2022

The open world Sonic game that released last week has an 8.5 user rating on Metacritic (opens in new tab), while the shoo-in for most GOTY awards, Elden Ring, is sitting at a 6.9 (opens in new tab). I’m afraid that means that Sonic Frontiers is actually better than Elden Ring.

That’s not the only evidence that the blue blur is just plain better than the grizzled old wretches of the Lands Between. A source PC gamers may consider more reliable than Metacritic user reviewers, the Steam user reviewers, have at the time of writing awarded Sonic Frontiers (opens in new tab) an “Overwhelmingly Positive” user review average. Elden Ring’s (opens in new tab) average is merely “Very Positive.” Sonic Frontiers wins again. Better game! More whelming!
