  1. Huh. I checked to see who could possibly beat Nintendo. I am both surprised and glad one of them was Capcom

      1. Whoa. Well done Nintendo!

        Capcom coming out on top didn’t surprise me. A lot of their games from Dragon’s Dogma to Monster Hunter World are top-notch. What surprised me though is Sega. I never thought it would come second and surpass EA and Nintendo and even Ubisoft. Well, I guess this is according to Metacritic.

    1. I have to agree. Nintendo definitely would have brought on far more excitement if they had focused on new game releases this past year.

        1. Very true. I’m happy with ports and all of the indie releases so far. Brings a lot of variety and updates on games I already know I love.

  2. How the fuck does EA beat Nintendo?

    They don’t even finish their games.
    Casey Anthony can patent better than those frauds can code, program, or develop.

  3. I guess Capcom released a good game last year, but what did Sega do?
    And how anyone explains EA on the list?

  4. EA releases better games than Nintendo? Are you fucking kidding me?! This just shows how easy it is to bribe IGN and co.
