Let's be honest, Ninty probably had the most quality games this year as well. The switch is in it;s prime while PS4/Xbone had less games released from all the big publishers because they are in decline and being replaced next year



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

2019 was pretty decent for PS4 imo. Quality might still be on its side, even if quantity wasnt.

I was about to post that no one thought PS4 and XB1 had a particularly great year last year.  However you posted first, and now there is one person.

I think most people who were paying attention know that PS4 had an amazing 2018 and were kind of dead last year.  Sony didn't even go to E3, because they had nothing really to show.  Nothing said in the OP should really be a surprise.  Nintendo was releasing a ton of notable games during the second half of last year while Sony and Microsoft had almost nothing except the usual annual franchises.  It doesn't surprise me that Nintendo had, in general, more total releases, and the number of notable games was a reflection of that.

Don't care if you have it. The problem is you asked for a Nintendo IP on ps4. May as well ask for Mario/Zelda and Pokemon too.



I'm mainly interested in the number of good games.

Last year Switch got 193 games with a MetaScore of 75 or higher, PS4 got 134, XBO got 107 and PC got 185

If you draw the line at MetaScore 80+ for "good games", Switch got 97, PS4 got 74, XBO got 67 and PC got 103.

If you are only interested in great games with a MetaScore of 85 or higher, Switch got 33, PS4 got 17, XBO got 19 and PC got 25.

Switch had another great year of quality games, over thirty 85+ games and almost hundred 80+ games... but this year we want more 90+ games! It's time for the next wave of big Nintendo games like Breath of the Wild 2, Metroid Prime 4 and Bayonetta 3.

PC had the most 90+ and 80+ games, software output seems very stable... lots of good new games. And with the PC GamePass you can play many of them Day One for a very small fee, no need to wait for the next Steam Sale.

PS4 and XBO are on par... both had minor declines, but that was expected, since a lot of development time of first and third parties will go into launch games for PS5/XSX.

New quality iOS/Android games are getting very rare (from almost 200 games with 80+ in 2011/2012 to 45 games in 2018 to 11 games in 2019). Most Indie developers of high quality games seem to have found the Switch as a much more profitable platform "on the go"... or most reviewers don't care about reviewing quality mobile games anymore.

Very informative post, thank you

Great post 👍



Well, Nintendo counts as software sells only for those games that have a physical version.
I consider that the number of games is not only the same that nintendo consider in their software sells report, right?
