Post Rockstar Most Consistent Publisher*Check out the list!

Acclaim's David Perry has published some interesting data he received from GameQuarry. Using Metacritic scores, the data lists the 10 most consistent and the 10 most inconsistent publishers. Here are the results, followed by further discussion.

Most Consistent Publishers


1. Rockstar Games
2. Telltale Games
3. Blizzard Entertainment
4. Microsoft
5. Valve
6. Stardock
7. Bethesda Softworks
8. Nintendo
9. 2D Boy
10. Square Enix

Now let's see who the game-publishing lamers are!

Least Consistent Publishers


1. Ubisoft
2. Activision
3. THQ
4. DreamCatcher Interactive
5. Konami
6. Sega
7. Namco
8. Eidos
9. Majesco
10. Strategy First
First off, the study is interesting, but I don't think it's all that valuable, simply because I don't think Metacritic is all that valuable. There just isn't a good way to fairly aggregate scores when different outlets are using different scales; how can your fairly integrate a "C-" or a "3/5" into a hundred-point system? With that in mind, I don't think these lists are an accurate indication of anything because GameQuarry's source is flawed.

That said, it does kick off an interesting discussion. What do you think of these lists? Do they make some of your favorite publishers look great? Do they make some of them look like garbage? Leave a comment and let me know (please)!

For me Most Consistent Publishers is going to be Rockstargames*

I'm guessing that they're going by ratings and sales (or overall popularity) of the average game the company releases.

LJN needs to make new some games. They made classics, Friday the 13th, Bill & Ted's Excellent Video Game Adventure and Bettlejuice, not to mention that awesome peripheral Rollin Rocker.

lol

Yea i don't see what this even means by consistency? does it mean that they say consistently release games rated about the same? and if you consistently release bad games is that better than having a couple good ones and a couple bad ones? I don't see the value of this list.
