Metacritic Reveals the Top Game Publishers Rankings for 2012

Metacritic Reveals the Top Game Publishers Rankings for 2012

We all have our favorite publishers. Maybe it’s because of a single franchise that we remain loyal to them or maybe it’s because you believe that the companies ethics match your beliefs and personality exactly? Well that all doesn’t matter for the duration of this news article as Metacritic have revealed the top game publishers of 2012!

Courtesy of Metacritic, here are the top ten publishers and their previous rank in 2011:

  1. Electronic Arts (Previously 4th)
  2. Microsoft (Previously 1st)
  3. Sony (No change)
  4. Nintendo (Previously 2nd)
  5. Capcom (previously N/A)
  6. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (Previously N/A)
  7. Ubisoft (Previously 6th)
  8. Konami (Previously 10th)
  9. SEGA (Previously 7th)
  10. Activision Blizzard (Previously 11th)

Further ratings can be found in their original story (Top Tip: See the source below!) although we found it very interesting that companies such as Capcom and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment made it on the list this year after not being featured last year…

Do you think both Capcom and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have had a really good 2012 to warrant this? Or why don’t you share your opinions of Electronic Arts getting the number one spot? Let us know, as always, in the comments section below!

    Great vlog and my biggest pet peeve is pelpoe who don’t watch their kids too. We had my youngest’s party last weekend and someone actually left their son in the bounce house for HOURS. He was little and couldn’t get in and out himself and they never checked on him. It was terrible. Thanks for the space to vent since I can’t write about it on my own blog.
