Metacritic top iPhone/iPad games of December 2012
Ok, so readers of the site will know that every month along with our own top of the month lists, we write up an article based on the Quality Index's top games of the month. They're an aggregate site that is part of the same media network as us, and often it's interesting to compare the lists to see if there's any crossover. Over time however, it seems their primary audience for aggregating scores has grown into a much different demographic than Appspy's audience. While this means that posting their findings is even more interesting thanks to this descrepancy, the list doesn't really speak well to our audience anymore.
What's the solution then? Why to introduce a list from another aggregate site of course. The aggregate site. In what should be a monthly feature, we're looking at the top games of the previous month according to the stats over at metacritic. Here's the top ten list for December.
1. Battle of the Bulge
2. Final Fantasy IV
3. Anomaly Korea
4. Into the Dead
5. Minigore 2: Zombies
6. Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour
7. Raiden Legacy
8. Man in a Maze
9. Mutant Mudds
10. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City 10th Anniversary Edition
This probably paints a better picture of the Appspy audience, although it is quite different in rank from our own December list. For instance, Pudding Monsters isn't even mentioned (our other two picks being Modern Combat 4 and Vice City). So what do you think? Is this information from Metacritic something you'd like to see us post every month as a comparison? Let us know your thoughts on their listings versus ours in the comments, and we'll try this again after our top list for January rolls around.
