How This Works
  • A game must have a Metacritic score to show, unless it is on multiple systems
  • The definition of Exclusivity is as follows:
    • Exclusive: The game can be played on that platform only, and no other, in any other form. HD Collections, Remasters or Delux Editions based on games from other platforms will never be considered exclusive
    • System Exclusive: The game can be played on that platform and any other devices that fall within the family of that platform. For example a 3DS game that can also be played on a Wii
    • Console Exclusive: The game can be played on that platform and any other devices that fall within the family of that platform, as well as on PC. For example a PS Vita game that can also be played on a PC
  • DLC or Expansions do not count unless they have a standalone release and do not require the base game to play
  • Episodic games do not count unless they recieve a complete release with all epsiodes included
