Would be nice, if we hadn't already established, that the data these graphs are based on is faulty. But for you: start listing all the Vita-exclusives, and you'll see that it handily beats everyone else.

Forza Horizon 4 is missing from these lists. It got a 92 metacritic.

Exclusive to the console means just that, exclusive to just the console on release. So Forza doesn't count because it's on pc. 

Actually "console exclusive" means that a game is only available on either Switch, PS4 or XB1, but can also be available on PC. If it's not available on PC, then it's just called "exclusive"



Funny that after all these years, some users still have no idea what those terms mean!

Exclusive = available on a single platform.
Console-exclusive = available on a single console AND PC (MS games/countless Playstation games)
Platform-exclusive = available on 2 or more consoles of the same brand (Persona 5, MK8, BotW, etc)

This graph is using "console-exclusive" in the broader sense which encompasses exclusives/c-exclusives/p-exclusives. SSBU and Forza Horizon 4 aren't included because the graph is old. Kerotan should have fixed it.



Console exclusives by year graph is very telling imo.
Thats where the "xbox has no games" meme comes from.

Playstation has dominated this gen with games.
to the point where if your into rpgs/jrpgs you basically have no other choice, than go PS4.

Why is Forza Horizon 4 not on the Xbox graph for 2018?It's definitely console exclusive and it definitely meta'd well over 85.



Graphs like these make the PC look good, because apparently consoles have to bend the definition of exclusivity to attain meaningful numbers.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

But they do though..... 

First off consider that those numbers of interest you put up can be flipped amongst the mentioned platforms.

Then secondly consider there are over a 150M people just like you.

Exclusives d and will always do what they always they, give people yet another reason t buy one platform over the other r t buy anything at all. So in your case, yu have 4 very good reasons to buy the NS, 2 for the PS4 and 1 for the XB1. Now imagine you could only buy one......... yup, they mean shit.

Having said that, this table needs t make up its mind what it wants to be.  



Not sure why ports even count
