      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.
