Did you ever wondered who publishes the best games? Does EA really produce crud year after year? Well, someone at Next Generation decided to do some digging and compile a list of the top publishers from 2005 to 2007.
According to the data collected, the likes of Sony Computer Entertainment, Nintendo, and Capcom have been faring quite well when it came down to reviewer ratings. Interestingly, the quantity of games being churned out have increased over the past 3 years despite the rising cost of development. This is could be attributed to services such as XBLA which attract many one time publishers to dump their offerings onto the gaming scene.
As for EA? They’re not bad; certainly in the top 10 year after year. Let’s hope the quality increases with the addition of Pandemic and BioWare into the Electronic Arts umbrella.
