Based on data pulled from GameRankings
, folks over at GameFunk have prepared the nice little chart above. Apparently, Wii games don't get that great of marks from reviewers. Compared to the marks of games on other consoles, it makes the Wii's library look even worse!
Here's the numbers:
- Xbox 360: 374 games: 26% good, 24% bad
- PS3: 122 games: 33% good, 17% bad
- Wii: 189 games: 11% good, 37% bad
But, before you punch your computer monitor in a fit of rage, know this: the Wii does
have a lot of shovelware
. It's just the price of success, as publishers and developers see the console as a means to make money
. And that's what they're in it for.
Also, keep in mind that the PS3 and Xbox 360 don't have Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
or No More Heroes
. So they pretty much lose.
