Ratings in game reviews: See who is the most successful

As part of Metacritic's annual ranking of game publishers, which is based on the ratings and reviews their games have received during the current year, Metacritic ranks publishers according to their performance. As part of this ranking, the average score of all the games released by that publisher in the last year is taken into account.

Adding points for games with an average score higher than 75, subtracting points for games with scores of 49 or below, and adding bonus points for games with scores of 90 or higher are added to the ranking. There was a time when Microsoft (Xbox) was the most successful game publisher in 2021, but in 2022 Sony Interactive Entertainment took over the title.

Despite the fact that it may sound a little little unbelievable, this is actually the first time in the 13 years since Metacritic began compiling this list that Sony has been crowned the most successful game publisher. As far as the year 2022 is concerned, Sony definitely had a successful year with games such as God of War Ragnarok, Horizon Forbidden West, and Gran Turismo 7, but one of the biggest factors in this success was the fact that God of War, Marvel's Spider-Man, and many others were ported over to the PC.

In addition to the Uncharted remaster and the Last of Us remake that Sony released in 2022, let us not forget that Sony also launched a PS5 version of Uncharted and The Last of Us. It is also worth pointing out that PlayWay was by far the worst of the other publishers, finishing in 45th place with an average score of 58.4.

The company that came second in the rankings was Ubisoft, which finished in 38th position after having a horrible year. Even though Elden Ring was one of the biggest games last year, Bandai Namco only ranked 24th overall in terms of sales, a huge drop from 2021 when the game ranked 7th overall.

RANKING

This ranking is quite interesting as it shows that in 2022, Atari was rated higher on this ranking than Square Enix and Electronic Arts, and Nintendo did not even manage to make an appearance in the top ten most successful publishers ranking.

We would like to present them to you as follows: Sony Interactive Entertainment (85.6 average rating) Paradox Interactive (81.8) Activision Blizzard (76.6) Focus Entertainment (80.0) Take-Two Interactive (78.9) Capcom (78.6) Sega & Atlus (79.3) Annapurna Interactive (79.2) Humble Games (76.8) Devolver Digital (78.3)
