I updated my MetaScore charts (graphics best viewed in fullscreen)


My thoughts:

  • Switch had a great year of quality games, even if many of them are ports and/or smaller games
  • PC had a stagnation of 90+ titles and a decline of 85+, 80+ and even 75+ titles... I hope that trend turns around next year
  • all other platforms had a huge increase of 90+ titles... are reviewers getting lenient on the 90% barrier or was it really such a good year?
  • quality iOS/Android games are getting rarer every year (from almost 200 games with 80+ in 2011/2012 to 45 games in 2018
  • so a lot of indie developers seem to shift from iOS/Android to Switch (better visibility, much higher price acceptance)
  • Switch after 22 months has almost double of 90%, 85% and 80%+ titles than WiiU in all its lifetime, 75+ almost tripled
  • the comparison between the number of quality titles on Switch and 3DS in their first 22 months is insane, f.e. 169 vs. 19 games (80+)
  • WiiU, Vita and 3DS support is dead

Oh, and Merry Christmas to all of you!
