Elden Ring reviews have been extremely positive so far. Earning a 95-97 Metascore between different platforms, FromSoftware's latest RPG has been a tremendous hit, and writer George R.R. Martin is pleased at the "landmark megahit" its become.
Pointing people to several reviews in a recent blog post, the Games of Thrones author confirmed:
"The wait is over. Years in the making, ELDEN RING was released last week, and has been taking the gaming world by storm. But don’t listen to me. From Software brought me on to do their worldbuilding, so I can hardly pretend to be objective."
George R.R. Martin Is Pleased With Elden Ring’s Reviews
He doesn't try to take too much credit, mind. Praising director Hidetaka Miyazaki and FromSoftware, Martin continued further, stating:
Of course, almost all the credit should go to Hidetaka Miyazaki and his astonishing team of games designers who have been laboring on this game for half a decade or more, determined to create the best videogame ever. I am honored to have met them and worked with them, and to have have played a part, however small, in creating this fantastic world and making ELDEN RING the landmark megahit that it is.
