PS3 is Metacritic's console of the year

Survey says it's about quality, not quantity.

Metacritic has put PS3 on top in the first annual Game Platform Power Rankings survey.

It's not just about review scores - in fact there were more highly rated games for Xbox 360 than PS3. Metacritic also takes into account the number of releases for each platform and "the best overall game quality".

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves came out as the best game of the year and was one of five titles in the top 10 for PS3. The Wii did less well - just 28 per cent of titles released for the console were praised by critics.

The best-rated Xbox 360 game of the year was Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, while Metroid Prime Trilogy topped the Wii chart. Street Fighter IV scored highest on PC. Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars was number one in both the PSP and DS charts.

But never mind all that, what was your favourite game? Have your say by voting in the Eurogamer Readers' Top 50. It's what the suffragettes burned their bras for hang on wait.
