Top 10 Best Video Game Publishers from 2020

By Cristhian Gómez

We can all agree 2020 was a very difficult year for all of us. However, in the video game department, things seemed to go much better than expected. 

Since we were all at home trying to save the world from a virus, we needed something to distract ourselves with and for a lot of us, that “something” was video games. Although there were delays and launch issues with some of the most anticipated games (Cyberpunk 2077 for example), 2020 was an excellent year for gaming and we got to enjoy awesome games from different publishing companies like Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft and Activision.

Thanks to Metacritic, we now know which video game publishing company launched the best video games of 2020. It’s not a matter of how many games each company launched, but a matter of how good they were overall.

Metacritic it’s a website that aggregates critic's reviews of video games (also books, movies, TV shows, etc.) from all over the world and then provides a scoring average based on all reviews available. They also publish an annual ranking with the top 48 game publishers of the previous year.
