This actual metacritic list is the definition of clickbait if you try reaching it through the posted article. The article summarizes the list without detail, but links to metacritic. The Metacritic link then starts with methodology, and when you hit next goes to #43: Merge Games. Do people really click through 43 pages to get to the lists of games?
Anyway, hopefully everyone is happy with wherever their favorite pubs end up on the list.
