I counted only PC games because that thread I posted that, was about if people still preferred Fallout 2 over Fallout 3. Since Fallout 2 wasn't released for consoles I couldn't include console player ratings of games. But I can go to the extra mile now for this thread, since I have a couple hours to spare. Fallout: PC - 8.8 Fallout 2: PC - 9.1 Fallout Tactics: PC - 7.6 Fallout 3: PC - 7.8 PS3 - 7.9 XBOX 360 - 8.5 Fallout 3 GOTY: PC - 8.6 PS3 - 8 XBOX 360 - 8.3 Fallout New Vegas: PC - 8.7 PS3 - 7.9 XBOX 360 - 8.3 Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition: PC - 8.7 PS3 - 7.8 XBOX 360 - 8.4 Fallout 4: PC - 5.5 PS4 - 6.6 XBOX One - 6.4 Let's throw The Elder Scrolls games there too: Arena: Not Available on Metacritic Daggerfall: PC - 8.3 Morrowind: PC - 8.9 XBOX 360 - Not Available. Only has one review and it gives it 10 Morrowind GOTY: PC - 8.9 XBOX 360 - 8.7 Oblivion: PC - 8.1 PS3 - 8.0 XBOX 360 - 8.7 Oblivion GOTY: PC - 8.9 PS3 - 8.7 XBOX 360 - 8.9 Skyrim: PC - 8.2 PS3 - 6.5 XBOX 360 - 8.5 Skyrim SE: PC - 5.8 PS4 - 7.0 XBOX One - 7.3 Switch - 8.2 Skyrim VR: PC - 6.5 PS4 - 8.1 So you can see that in all platforms, Fallout 4 had the lowest rank from all Fallout games that are not spinoffs and even lower than Fallout Tactics too. Skyrim SE has the lowest rank on all platforms except Switch, because it is the only TES game on switch, but even with a 8.2 on Switch, it's still a lower rank than most other games. Original Skyrim only has a better rank than Original Oblivion on PC and only by 0.1, but on the other platforms, it gets smashed with just a 6.5 on Playstation while Original Oblivion has a 8.0, and a 8.5 on XBox while Oblivion has 8.7. It gets smashed even more if compared with Oblivion GOTY, which surpasses even Skyrim on PC and XBox with a 8.9 (the highest value for a TES game on this entire list and only achieved by Oblivion GOTY and Morrowind/Morrowind GOTY). So here you have it, Fallout 4 and Skyrim (all versions) are rated on average and on all platforms as worse than the previous games on their IPs.
