I'm surprised the Wii U is not #1. 

But then again, a lot of the games on the PS4 are remastered games of high scored last gen games... soooooo

I did have a bit of a chuckle.

Quite strange. Maybe a lot of bad unknow games lowering wiiu score. If by publisher or developer they would score much better.

Yet with the PS4 having the most games it would be fair to assume that has even more bad/unknown games lowering the score...

Very true,and in the end far more good and bad games with greater variety

PS4 only 4% above Wii U, a console with last gen hardware.


Average percentage-wise, the difference isn't big but it's clear that the PS4 has a far better library based on quantity and quality.

Far more quality? x´D

Forget about indies and remasters and compare, even with all the multiplatforms Ps4 is still far from WiiU on quality.



It may just be me, but is there a reason that the percentages in the base tables don't add up to 100%?

Metacritic score PS4 Wii U XB1
> 90% 2.01% 1.94% 1.34%
> 80% 25.08% 22.82% 19.20%
> 70% 63.55% 54.85% 60.71%
> 60% 83.95% 74.27% 81.70%

By calculating the scores in this way you are double and triple counting the same scores, so a game with a score of 80-70 range will get counted for also a score of 70 -60 and below 60, won't it?



Why hate systems that bring you great games?

PSN: Aceburg0413

XBOX Live: Sheep of Doom13

Nintendo:  SheepofDoom13

3DS FC:  3222 - 5562 - 9867

There definitely are a few really low scores for Wii U (The Letter with 14, some minigame thing with 11) but they are very few in number compared to the total amount of review scores so I don't think it would change the score measurably. The others have bad games too, both have Rugby 2015 at 20 for example.

Agree that by publisher ninty would be well up there on average. This is also a case where the median might tell a meaningful story.

It's late here but tomorrow I'll break it down a bit further, split it by publisher and work out the median score (I'm predicting around 70 for all three).

Great, maybe even make a distribution curve of scores

Credit for the hard work, but there is only one problem, almost all of the multi-plats are mainly reviewed on PS4, which in most cases leaves it with the higher score ( see shovel knight, diablo 3 etc) and that can skew the results a bit. But I don't want to cherry pick and discredit your work as that is not your fault, you did a great job and nice insight on how PS4 has possibly the best games.

I don't have a PS4, but I have played Shovel Knight.  Can someone tell me why Shovel Knight is considered a 91 on PS4, but on Wii U it gets an 88, and on Xbox One only an 86?



The lenghts people will go to defend and spin in favor of a company.

And your base to say Nintendo 1st parties is better than all games on ps4 is? Because no matter which is the majority disagree.

With updated information how can anyone say that the PS4 doesn't have the best lineup? Based on metacritic scores of course. Preference will always play the biggest role in who likes what.

I bet that on launch the Nintendo Switch will have no built in in-game voice chat. He bets that it will. The winner gets six months of avatar control over the other user.
