    Seriously? If anybody can't see the huge flaw in this, slap yourself in the face.

    That PSP one makes a lot of sense. There aren't a lot of games, and many that there are that have reviews on big sites are good titles. With a smaller amount of titles, every game that receives a good average score makes a big difference.

    The PS3 also didn't do substantially better, so nobody bitch. It just did the best by a handful of games based upon the reviews from all the sites that contributed their scores.

    It is on a forum filled with sad little Sony hating Nintendo fanboys.

    At last, this proves conclusively Sony>>>>All. You can't argue with numbers based on opinion

    ** Excludes games with fewer than 7 reviews; downloadable map packs are also excluded.

    ... So shovelware isn't included.

    Edit: Go XSEED. Corpse Party is the 5th best on PSP

    Those numbers are extremely relative. A masterpiece for one can be a turd for someone else - the actual value of a given console's library is subjective and to be assessed on your own. Everyone's a critic - you don't need Metacritic or anybody else to tell you what you like.

    And before you say: "But the majoritaaaah..." consider that the "majoritaaaah" praises generic games.

    This is only counting games that came out this year and Wii is at the end of it's life so of course it will have a slightly lower Metascore.

    PS3 -
    69.5 ​
    Avg. Metascore
    253 games​

    Xbox360 -
    68.9​
    Avg. Metascore
    261 games​

    Wii -
    62.2​
    Avg. Metascore
    69 games​


    The Xbox360 and PS3 have very similar Meta scores (Actually they all do since there is only a 7.3 Meta score difference)
    Oh and just so everyone knows, you can do anything with numbers to your advantage.
    You could even make the Virtual Boy look like the best system of all time.

    2011 was a bad year for Wii owners, not many games were released, and the article you linked to only dealt with 2011.
    What you also missed out was that Ocarina of Time 3D was the highest critic rated exclusive this year and Skyward Sword the highest rated console exclusive game.
    And for a 2nd year running the highest rated console exclusive has been a Wii game.

    Next year might be very bleak for exclusives across all consoles with the next generation is just around the corner.
    That being said I am looking forward to some current gen titles next year, just need to work through my collection first.

    Wonder what the average score for PS2 games is, seeing as that was the Wii of its generation in terms of having the most units sold and was therefore the biggest shovelware magnet.

    This must be wrong, the Wii has quite a good library of exclusives.

    That's funny, considering this came from the person who flamed someone else for having a different opinion about Sonic '06.
