"We have never encountered such a low total number of great games in a single year."

From Metacritic.com’s “Best Games of 2012” feature. As we wrote in our game of the year list yesterday, 2012 may have been slight on AAA highlights but was undoubtedly rich with diverse gaming pleasures. This feature, crucially, does not measure the total number of “Good” games (defined as 75 and above), only “Good” exclusives to a system. I would be interested to see Metacritic compare the number of total “Good” games against past years.
