The countries that made the greatest games of all time, ranked

We rank the countries of the world by their highest-rated video game on Metacritic

Video games are for everyone, and in the modern era, anyone can make them. Some countries focus more on the industry than others, but there are still successful studios just about everywhere that have produced some of the best games ever made – and you may not know where they come from.

We’ve gone through Metacritic’s list of the best games ever made, and have ranked the countries of the world based on the game made in that country with the highest Metacritic score. While many of the biggest games are made in collaboration with multiple studios from all over the world, we’re only counting the location of the main development studio for each game.
