Metacritic stat suggests games are getting better

If the stats of review score aggregate, Metacritic, are to be believed, the overall quality of videogames is on the increase.

Although game sales were down 6 per cent in 2010 over the same period last year (according to NPD Group), the average quality of games has increased.

In 2010 so far, seven games scored an average of 90 per cent of higher, with three separate games all scoring higher than any individual game for the first half of last year.

On the other hand, while 25 games scored under 50 per cent average score in the first half of 2009, only 16 have sunk so low this year.

Of course, these statistics aren’t definitive proof that games are getting better, but it’s interesting to see nonetheless.
