Down from 2nd last year, came in behind EA, Microsoft, and Sony.

Using Metacritic to rank publishers. Wow. It's not even an official award.

These days, all the kids are playing M rated games while the adults are lining up for Pokemon. Which game is a kid's game now?

Simmer down... it's only been 7 minutes. =P

Uh-oh. You reported Nintendo placing 4th in something and not 1st... **stern look**... tsk tsk!

But for real - I'm gonna have to add that Xenoblade Chronicles to my "Wii games to play" list. I've heard nothing but great things.

Cool read - thanks!

Sony ranks number one in console makers that have to lay off employees and sell buildings.

So what was your point again?

I'd like to see the list of games they included. If the Wii had as much 'shovelware' as everyone makes out, surely that would have dragged the scores down somewhat?

I'm not saying other consoles don't have shovelware either. I'm actually quite surprised by this though. Given how the internet feels about EA, I'd have thought they in particular would be lower down.

I'm surprised they were that high not like Nintendo released tons of games in 2012

They rated each game from the publishers released this year.

This is what we refer to as "irrelevant".
