Two PS5 Exclusives Among Worst Games of the Year, Says Metacritic

PS5 has experienced the highs and lows of 2024 in full effect, contributing both to the best and worst games of the year so far. In an interesting twist of fate, two of the highest-ranking games and two of the lowest-ranking games, as per Metacritic reviews, are both PS5 exclusives. These games come from major company partners and one even belongs to a renowned intellectual property. However, these games are not first-party exclusives, meaning PlayStation is not directly responsible for their creation.

Standout Best-and-Worst Games of 2024

According to Metacritic, the worst game to date is Bandai Namco’s Jujutsu Kaisen: Cursed Clash with a lowly 44. Notably, even the next lowest game, Silent Hill: The Short Message, also a PS5 exclusive, scored significantly higher with a 52. This quintessential game was surprisingly released free of cost by Konami.

Lowest-Scoring Games of the Year

On a slightly brighter note, The Inquisitor from The Dust SA and Kalypso Media scored a 58. Just one point higher is Square Enix’s Foamstars, the second PlayStation exclusive on the list, garnering a 59. This game was particularly significant for being a PS Plus game upon release.

In an unexpected twist, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League from Rocksteady and WB Games, the biggest of all five releases, is at the bottom of the best-games list with a score of 60.

Game Rankings for 2024

5. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League – 60

4. Foamstars – 59

3. The Inquisitor – 58

2. Silent Hill: The Short Message – 52

1. Jujutsu Kaisen: Cursed Clash – 44

Most of these games may eventually get out of the worst-reviewed games list, with the exception of Jujutsu Kaisen: Cursed Clash firmly locked in due to its score of 44. Silent Hill: The Short Message with a score of 52 may also have minimal chances of getting out.
