Electronic Arts is the best valued in this list.
Metacritic, an aggregator of critical video games, music, movies, books and television, has published list of editors that they have launched a better catalog during 2016. This ranking does not take into account the sales or the valuation of the players.
The page has divided the list into two groups. The first is the large publishers who have published 12 or more games during the past year -previously 14, but has been changed by the downturn of new developments. The second list consists of editors of medium size, with 6-11 releases per year.
This analysis also picks out the best and worst games of each company. In the case of EA, Titanfall 2 for PS4 received the best scores, while Need for Speed (PC) the lowest.
The first ten posts are the following:
1 Electronic Arts (note average 79,7)
2 Square Enix (note average 77,1)
3 Nintendo (note average to 76.5)
4 Sony (average grade of 70.9)
5 XSEED Games (Marvelous USA) (note half-71,5)
6 Capcom (note average 71,0)
7 Activision Blizzard (note average 71,0)
8 Bandai Namco Entertainment (note average 70,8)
9 Telltale Games (note average 71,1)
10 Ubisoft (half note 69.0)
The category of editors stockings is led by Paradox Interactive, followed by Sega, Microsoft, Take-Two and Warner Bros. Interactive.
As a curiosity, Metacritic mentions that one of the greatest decreases in the valuation with respect to 2015 is suffered by Deep Silver, hurt by the cold reception of Mighty No. 9 and Homefront: The Revolution.
