SEGA was the best video game publisher of all 2020 according to Metacritic: here you have the complete list

Who was the best video game editor of 2020? And the worst? These types of questions always have as many answers as there are video game fans. And, to avoid leaving them in the air, in Metacritic they have published a list with the best video game publishers of 2020, ordered from best to worst. That is, the publishers who have published the best games, based on their average scores in the aggregator, without taking into account sales or user scores. And we can tell you one thing in advance: the best editor of 2020 has been SEGA.

For this, the portal has only taken into account publishers with 5 or more different games published in the year, not counting the releases on iOS. And to qualify them, they have developed an overall score based on 4 different parameters. The scoring criteria are as follows:

 

  • Average score of all your games published in 2020: a maximum possible of 150 points (your average rating x 1.5)
  • Percentage of games with good scores (above an average of 75): a possible maximum of 100 points (Ex: 80% of good games mean 80 points)
  • Percentage of games with bad scores (below an average of 49): a possible maximum of 100 points (Ex: 20% of bad games mean 80 points)
  • Number of “excellent” games (average of 90 or higher, with a minimum of 7 reviews): 5 additional points for each excellent game

SEGA dominates thanks to Persona and Yakuza

With all this in hand, the blue hedgehog company wins the award for the best editor of the year for Metacritic, after climbing 17 places compared to the 2019 ranking. All this thanks to the success of launches such as Persona 5: Royal and the Yakuza games, where the portal highlights that the company’s top 5 games all belong to these two sagas. And they also highlight the premiere of 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, as well as the ports of games such as Two Point Hospital.

The second highest-rated publisher of 2020 is one that many may not expect: Annapurna Interactive, which stands out for releases such as Florence and Kentucky Route Zero, as well as being the only publisher with 100% “good” games according to the Metacritic scale. . Just behind appears Capcom in third position, which has been in a state of grace with its games for several years. For those wondering about console makers, PlayStation (Sony) is the fourth highest-rated publisher, after ranking 22 a year ago, with The Last of Us 2 as its most prominent title.

Powered by Flight Simulator and Ori, Xbox (Microsoft) rises one place compared to 2019 and enters the sixth position in the ranking. And finally, we find Nintendo in the ninth position on the list with Animal Crossing as its best premiere, thus losing the third-place it held in 2019. You can check the reasons for each score in the Metacritic publication. But, for those interested in the ranking, here is the list with the 48 best-rated video game publishers of 2020 :
