Forums - General Discussion - All-time ranking of consoles based on number of 90+ Metascore games.

Only exclusives or multi too ?
I think it's useless to count multi.

Why are some people surprised by 360 being second place? It not only got several 90+ exclusives, like Halo 3 and Halo Reach, Gears of War 1-3, Forza Motorsport 2-4, and I believe Fable 2, it also had the better versions of 3rd party games due to PS3 being harder to develop for, so 360 ports of 3rd party games typically reviewed higher than on PS3. Quite a lot of 3rd party games were 90+ on 360, including 3 Rockstar games, 2 Bioshock games, 3 Mass Effect games, 3 Bethesda games, 3 Valve games, 2 Batman games, and 5 Ubisoft games.

I am somewhat surprised that OG Xbox got 5th place. I knew that Halo 1 and 2, Ninja Gaiden, KOTOR, Splinter Cell, and Forza were 90+, but I had no idea it had 30 games that managed 90+. That is impressive for sure.

So the Switch is outpacing the PS4. Nice!



This show that if there is inflation of scores it isn't from this gen.

7th generation remains, by far, the gen with the most overrated content.

I feel reviewers used to be way more forgiving during the 7th gen.

Start of this gen it seemed they got a lot more critical, but then started to give a lot of scores.

Yeah, they were definitely alot more critical early in the 8th gen. They've gotten a bit more lenient again now, but early gen there were barely any 90+ games. 



PS1 > all



Nice lists. This gen has not been nearly as good as past. Your list includes some DLC though, not really full games. This is also flawed because the Xbone versions of games or DLC that is counted for PS4 exists also on Xbone but just didn’t get used for reviews. Like the XCom 2 DLC for example.

At least this gen we don’t have a GTA IV gargantuan overrating situation.
