Games Radar finds out who has delivered the best games in the last year:
"This year has left us absolutely knackered. We're exhausted. We feel like we've been in a marathon. A marathon that involves mostly sitting on our arses and playing one incredible game after another. We could indulge you with a long list of stellar examples, but you're a gamer - you know that it's been a properly arousing 12 months. If you're anything like us, your wow glands will be swollen and you'll have blisters on your eyeballs. It's been that good.
So as gamers we're all winners (yay!), but what about the publishers - which software peddler walks away from 2007 with the fancy ribbon pinned proudly to their sparkly spandex lapel? Well, we thought it'd be fun to find out. By laboriously slogging our way through Metacritic, we've taken review scores for all the games released by the big players in 2007, added them together and - by using the magic of mathematics - worked out the average score for each publisher. A simple concept, but an absolute bitch-field of numerical hardship to collate."
