Influential video game review aggregation website Metacritic now grades individual game developers.

It collects the score distribution of developers and works out an average career score.

Industry legend Shigeru Miyamoto, creator of the Super Mario, The Legend of Zelda and Donkey Kong series, has a career score of 80.

Bet he regrets being a supervisor on Donkey Kong: Barrel Blast now.

Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima beats Miyamoto with a career score of 83.

Populous, Black and White and Fable main man Peter Molyneux is on 82.

Metacritic determines whether a game developer played a part in the creation of a game by having a gander at the credits entered on GameFAQs, which, like Metacritic, is owned by CBS.

To discover a developer's career score, simply type his or her name into Metacritic's search box.
