Metacritic has a list of the top reviewed games of 2020 with their platform listed here: https://www.metacritic.com/browse/g...ed=2020&distribution=&sort=desc&view=detailed

The interesting thing about this list is the games are separated by reviewed platform and appear multiple times, so the highest reviewed platform for a title will be listed accordingly. For instance Ori and the Will of Wisps on Switch is ranked 5th with an aggregate score of 93 while the Xbox One version is ranked 16 with a score of 90. So what platform dominates the top 100? Well ...

PS4
19 Titles in the top 100
Top Games (Rank. Title - Metacritic Score)
1. Persona 5 Royal - 95
2. Last of Us Part 2 - 93
14. Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age - Definitive Edition - 91

Switch
21 Titles in the top 100
Top Games (Rank. Title - Metacritic Score)
3. Hades - 93
5. Ori and the Will of the Wisps - 93
15. Animal Crossing: New Horizons - 90

PC
33 Titles in the top 100
Top Games (Rank. Title - Metacritic Score)
4. Half-Life: Alyx - 93
6. Hades - 93
9. Microsoft Flight Simulator - 91

PS5
8 Titles in the top 100
Top Games (Rank. Title - Metacritic Score)
7. Demon's Souls - 92
23. Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition - 88
32. Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate - 88

Xbox One
15 Titles in the top 100
Top Games (Rank. Title - Metacritic Score)
8. Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age - Definitive Edition - 92
12. F1 2020 - 91
16. Ori and the Will of the Wisps - 90

Xbox Series X
4 Titles in the top 100
Top Games (Rank. Title - Metacritic Score)
25. Tetris Effect: Connected - 88
76. Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition - 84
81. Planet Coaster: Console Edition - 84

I thought it was interesting that they didn't list Xbox Series reviews without the X, but not sure if they took care to separate S vs X reviews.

Meta-Meta-Metacritic: I'm not even sure it's worth worrying about Metacritic's scores considering the current state of games journalism.
