Rather than try to compare smaller publishers to giant ones, we have divided all publishers into two separately ranked groups, based on the number of games they released last year. Our first group consists of major publishers, who each issued 15 or more unique titles in 2010. We have ranked these publishers in order from best overall game quality to worst, using a formula based on four factors:

  1. Average Metascore for all products released in 2010

  2. % of products with good reviews (Metascore of at least 75)

  3. % of products with bad reviews (49 or lower; in this case, a lower % is better)

  4. Number of "great" titles (Metascore of 90 or higher)

Note that the Metascore average (the first factor) counts slightly more than the other factors. (Detailed scoring information appears in a table below the rankings.)

Here is how the major publishers stacked up based on their 2010 releases:

1     Take-Two Interactive    
2     Nintendo    
3     Capcom    
4     Microsoft    
5     Electronic Arts    
6     Activision Blizzard    
7     Sony    
8     Square Enix    
9     Sega    
10     Namco Bandai    
11     THQ    
12     Ubisoft    
13     Konami

Played or playing most of the top ranked games.

Wish they would hurry up and release Red Dead Redemption and Super Street Fighter IV on PC via Steam.

Might have to buy them on PS3 if they don't come out soon, holding out for the PC versions for the better gfx and control system (mouse > controller 4 lief) and of course Steam > other methods of distribution.

Amusing to think this time next year you might see Duke Nukem Forever on the list heh.

When Valve gets around to releasing Portal2 this year, they will clean up the 'small time' producers category!
