IGN: Which Publishers and Games Scored Best on Metacritic in 2012?

From IGN:
Metacritic, the ever-useful tool for both consumers and industry-types created to aggregate game reviews into one nifty score, has released its overall 2012 ratings sorted by publisher. And the results are, not surprisingly, super interesting. (IGN, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

No surprise.

Not as a console.

Most ppl bash IGN but with the exception of xcom, they were spot on with metacritics overall scores. Thats quite impressive.

Using your logic I should say PS3 scored higher than Xbox 360, no surprise. " Metacritic also released a console comparison: in 2012, PS3 games scored an average of 70.3, Xbox 360 games scored an average of 69.5 and Wii/Wii U games scored an average of 68.3."

You need to work on your trolling skills, they are getting really awful as of late.

Has IGN always wrote articles like these? I don't remember if they have or not.

In other words, which publishers had the most cheese to pay off as many top review mags/sites as possible (or at least give tons of free games to game "reviewers" who are so underpaid (and under-qualified for real work) that they are easily bribed with free games alone.

Ever since Unisoft got away with removing ads because of an unsavory review of Assassins Creed, almost every major gaming review site that depends on ads has been boosting up the scores of minuscule, redundant, lame, no-replay-value-having games from major publishers.

Shows how weak 2012 was compared to what came before and whats to come this year. It was a nice year, but nothing compared to others.

Metacritic? That site is a joke. Especially since sony fanboy sites like playstationuniversity, playstationextreme, playstationgang, etc... give much better scores than the average score just to bump up the average.

Yep. Cuz there's no Xbox or Nintendo fan sites that are on Metacritic, right?
