Metacritic has launched its annual writer rankings, and the outcomes are literally fairly shocking. These rankings take quite a few components under consideration, in an effort to feed a factors system that is based mostly on issues like common Metascore and whether or not the writer has launched any “nice” (no less than 90 Metascore) titles over the course of the yr.
Apparently sufficient, it is SEGA that set the bar for 2020, with a median Metascore of 81.6. The Japanese writer launched a glut of extremely effectively acquired video games final yr, which helped propel it to the highest spot. Persona 5 Royal (the best scoring sport of 2020), Yakuza: Like a Dragon, and 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim have been an enormous a part of that.
In reality, Japanese publishers had plenty of success in 2020. Capcom had a improbable yr, claiming third place within the rankings. Monster Hunter World: Iceborne was the large one (on PC), carefully adopted by Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition. Sq. Enix did not do too badly both, arriving in 11th because of the good Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age.
In the meantime, Sony made it into the highest 5, settling for fourth place. Naturally, The Last of Us: Part II was its heavy hitter, alongside PlayStation 5 launch title Demon’s Souls. Different excessive profile PlayStation exclusives, like Ghost of Tsushima, helped bolster a formidable 79.eight common Metascore.
