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.

E. Zachary KnightThe whole point of early Resident Evil games was to beat the game using only those weapons and ammo you could scavenge and use save files sparingly?01/28/2015 - 10:08am
E. Zachary KnightDoesn't the ability to buy health and weapons defeat the whole point of survival horror games?01/28/2015 - 10:07am

Wonderkarpgoogle fiber coming to atlanta georgia. I'm gonna try to get a transfer to atlanta just to get google fiber. lol01/28/2015 - 9:13am
Wonderkarpotherwise Its just going to feel like another unnecessary reboot to me01/28/2015 - 9:09am
Wonderkarpmy god, thats an awesome ghostbusters cast. why couldnt it just be a sequal and not a reboot though!? I hate Reboots and I'd rather have a new story with new characters than a gender swapped rehash. Throw in Dan Aykroyd to link the two franchises.01/28/2015 - 9:08am
E. Zachary KnightThe mandatory free trial aspect was one of my favorite features and I was greatly disappointed when they ended that part of it.01/28/2015 - 8:31am
E. Zachary KnightMecha, I never considered that a problem as the Ouya is capable of rendering games at a better than PS2 capability. However, the ease of development for Android has greatly lowered the bar for the vast number of games published for Android based systems.01/28/2015 - 8:30am
MechaTama31Goth_Skunk: It's not too late for CiVIlization... ;)01/28/2015 - 12:40am
MechaCrashI thought one of its other big issues was all the "quality" of phone games with all the portability of your television.01/27/2015 - 11:34pm
E. Zachary KnightApparently, people did not want a $100 console, they wanted a $200 one for a $100 price tag.01/27/2015 - 11:18pm
E. Zachary KnightI remember when people were demanding Ouya used the new and untested Tegra 4 processor rather than the tried and true Tegra 3, increase the RAM to 2Gigs and various other expensive addons.01/27/2015 - 11:17pm
ConsterCraig: perhaps I should've used the word "unreasonable", as in people clamoring for stretch goals that would guarantee they lose money on each deck.01/27/2015 - 10:04pm
Andrew EisenIt's my favorite movie. I'm looking forward to it as well.01/27/2015 - 9:16pm
Goth_SkunkI grew up idolizing Ghostbusters. I'm extremely excited to see another film.01/27/2015 - 8:52pm

Craig R.Nearly $4.2m in a week for Exploding Kittens. Can anything truly be unrealistic at this point?01/27/2015 - 8:50pm
prh99I am sure. Just have no interest in tropes in general or her take on gender portrayal.01/27/2015 - 7:44pm
Goth_SkunkI personally enjoy replacing letters with numbers in titles of movies and games. I think Firaxis missed out on a huge chuckle by calling it "Civilization V" and not "CiVilization."01/27/2015 - 7:20pm
Andrew EisenI bet I can guess how you voted!01/27/2015 - 7:02pm
