Metacritic Game Publisher Rankings

Metacritic offers its 2013 Game Publisher Rankings, revealing the companies behind the year's best reviewed games. The top ranking among "major publishers" goes to EA, where Mass Effect 3 got a 93 score and the lowest grade was 53 (however unfair) for Medal of Honor: Warfighter. Number two was Microsoft (falling from last year's top spot), number three was Sony, and number four was Nintendo. Activision/Blizzard moved up one spot from last year, an now occupies the number 10 position. The top "mid-size" publisher was Take-Two Interactive, followed by Telltale Games and Square Enix. Thanks Destructoid/VG247.

It is good to question some practices in this industry, but I don't get why it's questioned how EA gained its top spot just by this aspect. All the last year's games by each publisher are accessible there, so there shouldn't be any doubts left. EA simply generates the best games at the end of the day. Point is that most of them aren't new IP, so this isn't really a surprise.

My publisher of the year is Sony btw.
So many amazing little gems with Journey, Tokyo Jungle, Sound Shapes, Unfinished Swan etc. All new IP with innovative ideas.
