Metacritic Reveals the Top 10 Games of 2012

Metacritic Reveals the Top 10 Games of 2012

Metacritic, the online bank of review scores which mash together scores from publications across the internet to determine an average for each and every game released, have revealed the top 10 rated games of 2012 among other interesting information.

The top ten games of 2012 (in regards to any platform) all received a metascore of 91-95 and are as follows:

  1. The Walking Dead: The Game (Xbox 360)
  2. Persona 4 Golden (PS Vita)
  3. Mass Effect 3 (PS3)
  4. Mass Effect 3 (Xbox 360)
  5. Journey (PS3)
  6. Xenoblade Chronicles (Wii)
  7. Dishonored (PC)
  8. Mark of the Ninja (PC)
  9. Borderlands 2 (PS3)
  10. Far Cry 3 (PS3)

As you may be aware, some games featured twice in the top ten due to being slightly unique in their appearance/gameplay features on one platform compared to the other.

What is also interesting to note is that throughout 2012, the Xbox 360 received the most “new” games consisting of 243 titles, the PS3 received 204 titles and the Wii (including Wii U) received a measly 53 new titles.

Out of these new titles, the PS3 achieved the highest average Metascore, scoring 70.3 although the Xbox 360 wasn’t far behind averaging out at around 69.5 as a Metascore. Considering the Wii/Wii U only gained a collective of 53 new titles to its already expansive library it also did well, achieving 68.3 as a Metascore.

Did you think that 2012 was a good year for games? Will 2013 be even better? Let us know in the comments below!
