Please note that the Ps3 version of walking dead didn't make the list due to only having 3 reviews where as the 360 had ten reviews.

All in all the avg is pretty close, the Wii/WiiU had a highest percent of Good games, the Ps3 just comes out on top for having more So-So games and less Bad games when the 360 & Wii/WiiU.

Edit: Damn pie chart vanished ill try fix :P

The year of downloadable games

Average quality isn't really a useful stat. If one console gets some 5 extra dreadful games and one extra splendid game, that console did better but it wouldn't appear that way.

Why? It has 2 more good exclusives and 1 more great game. That way more than makes up for the 0.8 point lower average. Sales2099 is gonna love this!



Nah. I own more great games/exclusives for Wii than they consider great, haha.
Internet is fun times. Critics, gotta love them. Same with music, books and movies.

I'm pretty sure his thread is about exclusives anyways.
