Metacritic updated list of top decade games based on listings from journalists from around the world

In early December, the review aggregator Metacritic published two tops of the best games of the decade: according to the average rating on the website and a combined rating showing which projects the press preferred in its own final lists. In the latter case, the places were distributed according to the points system, where the total points were accumulated depending on the positions of a particular game in the media tops.

Since at the time of the creation of the second top, not all of the best games of the decade were named by the top, recently Metacritic updated this rating, recounting the points taking into account the lists from other publications added in recent weeks.

As a result, many games have changed their positions. So, if earlier occupied the second line Minecraft, now it’s located at this place The last of us, a The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt rose from the 4th number to the 3rd. Leading with a big gap continues The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. She has already been put on the first place in the lists of the best games of the decade 17 times, another 4 times in second place. She also got into 15 other ratings for different positions.

For each first place in the lists of different publications, Metacritic awards games with 3 points, the second – 2 points, for places from 3rd to 10th – 1 point each (the same game gets for the presence in the list of 10 or less positions without division by places), from 11th to 20th places – 0.5 points.

Zelda has 74 points, The Last of Us – 40, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – 31.

At the moment, the top 20 looks like this:

In a vote among Metacritic users, in which 2,600 people took part, The Last of Us became the main game of the past decade. She won a similar vote among readers of the official PlayStation blog.
