Metacritic Names Take-Two the Top Publisher of 2010

February 10, 2011 -

Review aggregation site Metacritic has named Take-Two the best publisher of 2010, citing its own review score data for games released within the year. According to the site, Take-Two's overall average score for the year was 77.1 percent. Red Dead Redemption was the company's highest rated game, with an average review score of 95 percent based on 96 reviews. Take-Two's lowest scoring game was Major League Baseball 2K10 for Wii, which had an average review score of 52 percent. The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom, named the publisher's "best original title," had an average overall review score of 83 percent. 

Nintendo came in a close second with an average overall review score of 76.1 percent. Super Mario Galaxy 2 was the highest rated game of the year overall, with an average score of 97 percent. Capcom came in third at 74.5 percent, followed by Microsoft at 73.4, and EA at 72.6. Activision Blizzard missed the top five with 69.3 percent. 

Metacritic divided publishers into three groups for the list, (large, medium, and small). To be in the list publishers had to have at least 15 titles to market. Telltale Games was the top publisher among mid-sized companies (7-14 games released in a year) and actually managed to outscore Take-Two with an overall rating of 78.4 percent. Smaller publishers (1 - 6 games released within a year) were not listed.

MaskedPixelanteI'm not sure how to feel about Ultron's mouth. I'm sure he has one in the comics, but this is getting dangerously close to Transformers "Optimus has a defined mouth and it looks super weird" territory for me.10/22/2014 - 8:49pm

quiknkoldI have a problem with games that use a digit for sequals when clearly they can be called something else. Five Nights at Freddy's 2? Nonono. Its "Another Five Nights at Freddy's" or "Five Nights Week 2"10/22/2014 - 5:30pm

E. Zachary Knightis it really that hard to answer a question, that to me seems fairly straight forward? I ask, because I have asked a specific question now 3 times without an actual answer in the wastebook thread.10/22/2014 - 5:20pm
