Here is information that is likely to cause a lot of ink to flow. Metacritic, the reference aggregator in the video game world, declared Xbox as the best publisher of the year 2021. With 87.4 points on average, Microsoft and its studios take the lead whereas the year before, they were only 6th. For 10 published productions, 100% are judged to be at least “good” and three as “excellent”. The Microsoft Flight Simulator, Forza Horizon 5 and Psychonauts 2 franchises are the ones that stand out the most from the American firm’s catalog. As for its direct competitor, Sony finds itself in second position with 81.3 points. A note influenced by the exclusivity Destruction AllStars which weighs down its average quite a bit, the game obtained a note of 62%. Ratchet & Clank along with the PS5 versions of Ghost of Tsushima and Death Stranding were the driving forces driving up the PlayStation average. To find Nintendo, you have to go lower in the ranking, to 14th place exactly. The year 2021 has not been marked by the Japanese firm, which cannot even reach the top 10. Despite this, we especially remember Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury and Metroid Dread.
Elden Ring is currently the best-selling game of 2022 in the US
It’s only been two weeks since Elden Ring was released and it’s already the top sellers of 2022 in the United States. Figures that nRous come from the American company specializing in market research, NPD Group. The software is the 5th best seller of the last 12 months despite its recent release and Elden ing is the second in terms of sales in the month of launch, just behind Call of Duty Vanguard. As of March 4, we already had an estimate of sales thanks to the SteamSpy tool analyzing the user profiles of the Valve platform. We learned that it was no less than 10 million copies that were counted, a figure that has still increased since. Whereas Elden Ring is the 6th most played game of all time on Steamit remains in the shadow of Horizon: Forbidden West which is favored by PlayStation gamers while the descendant of the Souls is first on Xbox consoles.
The Arcane series dominates the Annie Awards
The Arcane series, taken from the League of Legends universe, was released in November 2021 and continues to make a lot of noise. And yes, the Annie Awards took place this Sunday, March 13 and Arcane had no less than 9 nominations.

And to put it simply, Arcane won all 9 categories where the series was nominated. Best Special Effects, Best Character Animation, Best Character Design, Best TV Show, Best Direction, Best Production, Best Storyboard, Best Voice Acting and Best Writing: Arcane simply took everything by crushing the competition. At the release of its second act, Arcane was the most watched series on Netflix in no less than 52 countries. Fortiche’s polished animation, relevant soundtrack, and rich Runeterra universe earned the series a 100% on aggregator RottenTomatoes. Suffice to say that expectations for season 2 are now very high.
