30 Game Developers’ Metacritic Scores Over the Years

1 of 15

The gaming industry is full of AAA developers who have all made some of our favorite experiences. A lot of people use review scores to help decide what they should buy over the years, and each company has gained a huge library of titles and scores. Let’s take a look at some of the biggest developers, and how their Metacritic scores stack up over the years. On the next pages you’ll find 30 big developers categorized alphabetically with each game listed, along with their release date and the Metacritic score for that game. At the end, each developer will have an average. Please note that not every game for every developer will be listed, as some don’t have scores on Metacritic at all. We’ll also be focusing on the first release of each game and not including HD remasters or later ports. If a game is on multiple consoles and has multiple scores, those will be averaged.
