Metacritic ranks SEGA as their #1 publisher of 2015

SEGAMetacriticPublisher2015While SEGA didn’t release a lot of games during their 2015 year, the critics seemed to like the games they did release. From their SEGA 3D Classics to niche Japanese titles like Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX.  Metacritic ranks SEGA as their #1 publisher of 2015, beating the likes of companies like Sony Computer Entertainment, TellTale Games and yeah, even Nintendo. It seems that people already are calling this unfair due to most of the titles being re-releases, but their really good and add new content. I suggest people having issues with this to ask Metacritic to change the rules. When was the last time you could say ‘Metacritic ranks SEGA #1’?

Here are the list of publishers and how they ranked:

  1. SEGA – 77.1%
  2. Telltale Games – 74.6%
  3. Sony – 74.4%
  4. Activision Blizzard – 72%
  5. Devolver Digital – 73.5%
  6. Nintendo – 71.7%
  7. EA – 71.9%
  8. Bandai Namco – 69.5%
  9. Ubisoft – 69.9%

Seems that SEGA’s new stradegy of releasing fewer titles but making sure the titles that are released are of ‘good to great’ quality might be the solution to rebuilding their brand. This year we have (in the west) games like Valkyria Chronicles Remastered, Yakuza 0 (maybe), 7th Dragon III: Code VFC, Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice, Total War: Warhammer, SEGA 3D Classics Collection, and even that rumored Sonic 25th Anniversary game. If all goes as planned, SEGA might top the list again. Metacritic ranks SEGA #1, how do you feel about this?

    Impressive. But doesn’t the fact that all they released last year were retro games and ports proof that we’re all smoking some kind of good **** since we live in a haze not realizing SEGA has been dead for a long time?

    I might be blowing smoke rings around several SEGA 3DS games this year. The Tokyo show preview of Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice on YouTube makes it look like most magical Sonic game since the Genesis era. Of course, since it’s in development limbo and may never come out backs up my SEGA being dead theory

      Yeah…..its really odd how the hell SEGA ends up being praised when they delivered jack squat stuff last year.

      Who knows? I may be wrong here, but honestly, I feel that its too late for them to bring back their glory days.

      Well, what they did release was better than ever other US publisher. SEGA just restructured and we are finally seeing them get started.

      Except when comparing to Nintendo, Nintendo games won awards unlike SEGA. I mean Five great games came from Nintendo last year. SEGA at best did nothing.
