Amazon Starts Displaying Metacritic Scores on Games’ Listing Pages

on April 1, 2014 6:32 PM

Apparently someone at Amazon thought that user reviews weren’t enough to provide purchasing “guidance” to customers, so starting today the massive online retailer is following Steam‘s example by including each game’s Metacritic score on its listing page.

Whatever you think of Metacritic and its way to aggregate review scores, looks like it just gained a little bit more power on people’s purchasing decisions.

Hopefully customers will be able to look past the score and keep supporting underrated games as well.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
