Those should be there too. Why leave them out? Cause the hype machine for them isnt as big? thats no excuse.
And as for the PS3 list, games like MAG, LA, and Heavy Rain have little details to go on.........yet you list them because of the hype. In all possibility they could all flop.
The whole lists do however count. If a game gets above 70%, its a good game and should be counted. Comparing the origional 2 lists, the 360 list has a greater chance of having more games reviewed 70% and up......signifying that 360 will have a better 09 lineup.
Why didn't he include Race Pro? http://www.metacritic.com/games/platforms/xbox360/racepro
Why didn't he include Ninja Blade? Same reason he didn't include Demon Souls: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/From_Software
Why didn't he include Star Ocean 4? He did.
MAG, LA and Heavy Rain could certainly flop. So could Halo ODST, Alan Wake and Splinter Cell: Conviction. Any game could flop. Your point?
And which lineup is better, the one with 14 games over 80, or the one with 7 games over 80 and 9 games over 70?
