Most, Least Consistent Publishers

Dave Perry's Blog highlights private research conducted by GameQuarry analyzing some Metacritic data that he's been given permission to post. They looked through historical data to determine which publishers had the best track record at producing hit games based on their cumulative Metacritic scores. Based on this concept, the most consistent publisher in the study is Rockstar Games, while the least consistent publisher is Ubisoft. The nine publishers rounding out the most consistent list are Telltale Games, Blizzard Entertainment, Microsoft, Valve, Stardock, Bethesda Softworks, Nintendo, 2D Boy (obviously there was no minimum number of releases required), and Square Enix. The other nine entries on the least consistent list are Activision, THQ, DreamCatcher Interactive, Konami, Sega, Namco, Eidos, Majesco, and Strategy First. Thanks GamesIndustry.biz.

Ubisoft was the first thing to come to mind when it cam to shit titles. EA has picked up it's game in the past year... still not atoning for all the shit they've shoveled forth throughout history, but a step in the right direction.

I remember the Electronic Arts logo from back in the SNES/Genesis days, seeing it made me happy. From the best to the worst, and if the trend continues, back to a frontrunner.

Blizzard being among the most consistent also expected... but Rockstar? What have they done aside from GTA?
