Starfield didn't make it to the list of the highest-rated games for Xbox according to Metacritic in 2023

Metacritic employees have released the list of top-rated games for both Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S in 2023. Leading the pack among Microsoft's consoles is Alan Wake 2, while the much-discussed Starfield didn't make the cut. Exclusive titles for the platform include Hi-Fi Rush, Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition, and Forza Motorsport. Baldur’s Gate 3, a new addition for Xbox Series X|S, didn't make it into the rankings due to a scarcity of reviews, given its late release in the year.
